The goal of Area 4 is to make it as easy for companies to work together in the future as it is for departments within a company to work together today. The central element of such collaboration is a digital platform that offers seamless interfaces with the individual subsystems of the individual partner companies. Area 4's main focus is to develop a reference architecture for such platforms and to provide a scalable software framework that meets the requirements of future digital production networks.
