By Lorenza Victoria Salati and Giulio Focardi:

"THE INVISIBLE FACTORY IS BASED ON THE IDEA OF DEFINING OTHER ECONOMIC SUBJECTS IN THE SAME WORKING ENVIRONMENT AS POSSIBLE RESOURCES. There are peer resources that carry out their own individual activity, but that can be activated in case of need in order to plan demanding projects, on the basis of a structure of pre-debated and pre-accepted agreements within the system of the multi-factories. Always available buffet of resources, of which everyone is part, and from which everyone can get the necessary skills when required. One of the advantages of the Invisible Factory is to enable a group of small companies to tackle large projects by supporting a low initial investment and taking on a low business risk, unlike what happens when a small company acquires a large order and finds itself in a financial and resource crisis as it is highly exposed as a prime contractor or has to incorporate human resources which, once the project is completed, are then difficult to fully employ."
