English abstract:
Engineering Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) is challenging, as these
systems have to handle uncertainty and change during operation. A typical approach
to deal with uncertainty is enhancing the system with self-adaptation capabilities.
However, realizing self-adaptation in CPS, and consequently also in Cyber-Physical
Production Systems (CPPS) as a member of the CPS family, is particularly challenging due to the specific characteristics of these systems, including the seamless
integration of computational and physical components, the inherent heterogeneity
and large-scale of such systems, and their open-endedness.
In this chapter we survey CPS studies that apply the promising design strategy
of combining different self-adaptation mechanisms across the technology stack of
the system. Based on the survey results, we derive recurring adaptation patterns that
structure and consolidate design knowledge. The patterns offer problem-solution
pairs to engineers for the design of future CPS and CPPS with self-adaptation
capabilities. Finally, the chapter outlines the potential of collective intelligence
systems for CPPS and their engineering based on the survey results.
