Part of the Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems book series (LNNS, volume 86)


In Chap.  2, the basic design and adoption model for the technology of complex activity (CA) has been presented (Novikov in IFAC Proc Vol 45(11):408–412, 2012, [1]). In the current chapter, a set of management problems arising in the design and adoption of the new technologies of complex activity will be considered, which includes the following problems: optimal learning (optimal choice of typical solutions); resource allocation in technological networks; optimal strategy development for the transition from technology design to productive use.
