technological process


technological process
1) a way of applying science to achieve a practical end.
2) the active state of technology occurring at many levels of complexity. Technological activity employs all types and levels of technological knowledge, and consumes technological recourses. It connects the present with future possibilities. At the highest level, technological process is characterized by multidimensional, decision-making strategies, At the lowest level, technological processes are learned behaviors that enable one to employ tools and other resources to perform a task or activity. Fundamental technological processes, which are the foundation of, and provide context for, all technological activity, include the following: - communication processes of encoding/decoding, storing/ retrieving, and sending/receiving; - managing processes of planning, decision making, organizing, staffing, motivating, leading, and controlling; - control processes of sensing, switching, and regulatingб conserving, converting, and transmitting; - production processes of separating, combining, shaping and finishing; - biotechnology processes of propagating, growing, adapting, treating, maintaining, harvesting, and converting.
