Several colleagues from Austria, Germany, Sweden, and I investigated the challenges on Software Engineering for Cyber-Physical Production Systems (CPPS). The results can be found in our paper "Industry Voices on Software Engineering Challenges in Cyber-Physical Production Systems Engineering" on this year's ETFA conference.
In our study, we identified eight major fields of challenges for software engineering in CPPS:
- Real-Time Requirements
- Knowledge Management
- Data Analytics & AI
