Digital twins for continuous deployment in model-based systems engineering of cyber-physical systems

Book Contribution - Book Abstract Conference Contribution

Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are required to operate over a longer lifetime. As such, their requirementscan change, requiring updates to the system to be be rolled out continuously (Continuous Deployment)throughout the system’s lifetime. The DevOps methodology provides a structured, quality assuringway to do so, as it integrates Development and Operations of a system in a continuous cycle. DevOpsis generally applied in software development, however in the design of CPS, which follows a Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) approach, it is not. This is because many challenges remain in theapplication of DevOps in MBSE. Our focus is on creating the foundations for continuous deployment ofsafety-critical CPS using digital twins of the CPS.
