The extensive digitization in industry and the advancing introduction of cyber-physical systems (CPS) in manufacturing offer a wide-ranging potential for industrial value creation. To ensure effective engineering processes of these systems, technological and organizational challenges need to be addressed systematically. Thereto, we develop a method for the systematic engineering of industrial CPS in this paper. The operational framework of the suggested method provides a guided process for (1) the selection of application fields for industrial CPS under the consideration of economic and technological necessities as well as (2) guidelines for the subsequent system configuration with components and functionalities.
