The complicated examine Institute (A.R. 1.) on "the potency of producing structures" used to be held below the auspices of the NATO specific Programm~ Panel on platforms technological know-how as part of the NATO technological know-how Committee's non-stop attempt to advertise the development of technology via overseas co-operation. complex examine Institutes are organised for the aim of bringing jointly specialists in a selected box of curiosity to spot and make identified the current country of information in that quarter and, via proficient debate, to make ideas for instructions for destiny examine that might gain the group at huge. To this finish types of contribution have been acquired via invitation. there have been these papers which have been concerning the present country of labor within the zone of producing platforms and its corporation; additionally 3 subject papers have been awarded to supply a stimulus to the dialogue by way of methods of pondering, either in regards to the quarter and in regards to the type of examine needed.

In action research the researcher is involved in the situation being researched and, by being involved, changes it. Research into integrated production systems in which the boundary of investigation contains human decision-takers is of the latter kind and hence will resemble action research. Two features of action research are essential and must be explored prior to any such investigation. (i) The degree of involvement of the researcher must be as high as possible given the nature and constraints of the actual situation.

To describe someone as "an explorer" is to name an emergent property of this particular personality.

Thirdly the world of learning, the world of science should be advanced as a result of successful research. This leads uS to consider the nature of this wider learning that arises from action research. We need to do this with some care. An implication is often made that "research" should be done in pursuit of generalisable new "truths" or"with the aim of making additions to THE NATURE OF ACTION RESEARCH 57 the corpus of scientific laws. The learning resulting from action research on the other hand tends to be contingent on the nature of the organisation in which the research has taken place.
