The associator is 'the subsystem which carries out the first stage of the learning process, forming enduring associations among items of information in the system' (Miller, 1978, p.
High-effectiveness groups perceive the input transducer, memory and encoder processes as high in quality but perceive the associator, producer and supporter processes as low in quality.
The decider subsystem receives this information and combines it with information from the reproducer subsystem (genetic information), the timer subsystem, the memory subsystem, the associator subsystem, and the internal transducer subsystem to form information outputs.
Thus, it will belong mostly to such subsystems as memory, associator, and boundary, among others.
No system at this level has an associator subsystem; this subsystem is downwardly dispersed to individual persons or, occasionally, outwardly dispersed to operations researchers or management consultants from another organization; an artifact such as a computer may do some associating for an organization.
