With the emergence of Cyber-Physical Production Systems (CPPSs), systems engineers are facing a dramatic increase in the complexity of the development and operation of such systems. However, software plays a crucial role in the effective and efficient operation of CPPSs. Yet, Software Engineering for CPPSs poses several challenges, such as the integration of multiple disciplines, the unclear semantics and variability of engineering artifacts, support of AI for CPPSs, or the continuous testing and deployment to heterogeneous systems. Hence, it requires novel approaches to a large range of problems to address these challenges. More comprehensive and systematic views on all aspects of CPPSs and their development are required. The Special Session on Software Engineering for Cyber-Physical Production Systems aims to discuss challenges for software engineering approaches and technologies to CPPSs, including their adoption, and highlight novel methods for the design of CPPS software.

Topics under this session include (but not limited to)

  • Model-based software and languages for the engineering and operation of CPPSs (e.g., DSL)
  • Operation, evolution, and management of CPPS software (e.g., DevOps, agile methods)
  • Approaches to monitor and improve CPPSs (e.g., Digital Twins, metrics, self-adaptability)
  • Interdisciplinary collaboration in the engineering and operation of CPPS software
  • Security, resilience and sustainability of CPPS software by design
  • Testing, validation and verification of CPPSs
  • Artificial intelligence and LLMs for the engineering and operation of CPPSs
  • Software engineering education for CPPS engineers
