The main goal of this research is to determine types of control which support system self-production. The second order cybernetics concepts have built a research theoretical foundation and SNA-methodology and agent-based modeling have proved to be its methodological basis. Under condition of economics mainstream crisis, an approach that combines meta-theory with new information technologies shows one of the possible solutions. Possible control types and their practical realizations are under discussion in this paper. The engineered set of agent-based models has confirmed the self-production possibility under certain conditions.
KEYWORDS: cybernetics, self-production, system analysis, agent-based modeling, SNA-methodology.
