Managing Scope, Stakeholders and Human Resources in Cyber-Physical System Development

Filipe Palma, Marcelo Fantinato, Laura Rafferty, Patrick Hung

Abstract

Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) represent the convergence of physical processes and computational platforms into technological solutions composed by sensors, actuators and software. Such as for other types of projects, project management practices can benefit a CPS development project. Due to some particularities of CPS, such as multidisciplinary team and high innovative aspect, generic project management practices may not be enough to enhance project success. Therefore, specific practices are proposed for better managing CPS projects, called CPS-PMBOK approach. CPS-PMBOK is based on the Project Management Institute’s PMBOK body of knowledge. It is focused on the integration, scope, human resource and stakeholder knowledge areas; which were chosen considering a systematic literature review conducted to identify the main CPS challenges. Managers and developers of a R&D organization evaluated the approach. According to the practitioners consulted, the proposed practices can improve several aspects related to CPS projects.
