    Resumen Frederick Taylor presenta un conocimiento que permite identificar las problemáticas de las fábricas, y desde este saber diagramar técnicas y prácticas administrativas efectivas para resolverlas. Se concibe un saber que habilita nuevos puntos de anclaje para el poder. La administración científica permite re-apropiarse del control de aspectos centrales por parte, y de, la administración, reducir considerablemente el despilfarro de los recursos materiales y del trabajo humano y el aumento de la productividad e intensidad del trabajo. Estas innovadoras formas de extracción del plusvalor son posibles por una recomposición de los mecanismos del poder disciplinario introducidos por la manufactura y la fábrica para la conformación del «obrero colectivo y la maquinaria unidad colectiva y a la integración de nuevos elementos, acentuando los efectos de dominación sobre las multiplicidades obreras. Abstract Frederick Taylor introduces knowledge to train the eye of factory managers in order to detect the imperceptible or consciously unsolved problems that distress them, and from this knowledge, to plan effective administrative techniques and practices to work them out. Therefore, this knowledge gives rise to new foundations of power. The scientific management aims at regaining control of the central aspects of administration and to place it firmly in the hands of the management, thus restricting the workers participation to the mere execution of productive tasks, giving birth to a co-operation actively regulated and planned by the management. These innovating ways of subtracting the surplus value take root due to a reorganization of the mechanisms of the disciplinary power introduced by the manufacture and the factory for the formation of «the collective labourer and the collective machinery» as well as the integration of new elements, thus highlighting the dominating effects upon the workers multiplicities.
