The aim of this paper is twofold: 1) to describe relevant factors, which affect the changes whithin the Local Production Systems. 2) To analyse their dynamics on the basis of a cognitive and evolutionary theoretical framework. Local production systems are conceived as complex and multidimensional entities, based on systems of interdependencies among agents or units belonging to them. The study of interactions among components allow to define topological features, while the connective geometry that is the structures of connections allows to single out the sequences of patterns, or configurations of relationships among production units. The anlysis is centred on two essential points: 1) information flows and the creation of knowledge within local systems; 2) how interactions unfold at two levels: within the system, and between the external environmental and the said system. Thus the evolution of LPS is analysed on the basis of changes in dynamic co-ordination and co-operation costs (see section 1) as a consequence of evolutionary discontinuities in the competitive environment. The final aim of the analysis is to show foreseeable trajectories and to discuss different theoretical perspectives, in order to develop future research lines.
