To support human decision making Area 3 defines two objectives:

  1. Combine data-driven approaches with configuration management methods and simulation environments in order to provide a reliable, trustworthy (data) basis for decision making.
  2. Provide this objective basis for decision making to humans in such a way that it takes into account their cognitive capabilities (e.g., information filtering in stress situations) as well as the situation/context in which the decision has to be made (e.g., within production process versus design process) in order to ensure timely and optimal decisions.
