Connecting digital information systems with real world objects and processes is the core of the digital transformation. New business models and opportunities thrive on the various options that the resulting information offers. Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are the most prominent incarnation and – in contrast to various other aspects of the digital transformation – really new: sensors and actors allow information systems to monitor the real world and will profoundly change most markets and business domains. However, developing CPS involves different specialists and various technical challenges. Software and hardware engineers, network specialists, and data scientists have to work hand in hand and combine their specialties to incorporate the different perspectives into one team. We present EngCPS, an engineering approach to develop CPS that enhances classic software engineering methods with CPS-specific extensions.
