Area 5 will study the economic, social and legal aspects that will arise in the development and implementation of the novel technologies of Areas 1-4. The project has a unique opportunity to look at the management problems in an "Industry 4.0" production network in an integrated way, as the results of Area 5 directly link to the production designs and software technologies developed in Areas 1-4.
