Cyber-physical system: How long will it take to change?

Save time, empower your teams and effectively upgrade your processes with access to this practical Cyber-physical system Toolkit and guide. Address common challenges with best-practice templates, step-by-step work plans and maturity diagnostics for any Cyber-physical system related project.

Download the Toolkit and in Three Steps you will be guided from idea to implementation results.


The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated Cyber-physical system specific requirements:

STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with…

  • The latest quick edition of the Cyber-physical system Self Assessment book in PDF containing 49 requirements to perform a quickscan, get an overview and share with stakeholders.

Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…

  • Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation

Then find your goals…

STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 644 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Cyber-physical system improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 644 standard requirements:

  1. What do we need to start doing?

  2. Is key measure data collection planned and executed, process variation displayed and communicated and performance baselined?

  3. In the case of a Cyber-physical system project, the criteria for the audit derive from implementation objectives. an audit of a Cyber-physical system project involves assessing whether the recommendations outlined for implementation have been met. Can we track that any Cyber-physical system project is implemented as planned, and is it working?

  4. Is it clear when you think of the day ahead of you what activities and tasks you need to complete?

  5. Are roles and responsibilities formally defined?

  6. How Will We Measure Success?

  7. Have the concerns of stakeholders to help identify and define potential barriers been obtained and analyzed?

  8. How long will it take to change?

  9. Do those selected for the Cyber-physical system team have a good general understanding of what Cyber-physical system is all about?

  10. How can auditing be a preventative security measure?

Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:

  • The workbook is the latest in-depth complete edition of the Cyber-physical system book in PDF containing 644 requirements, which criteria correspond to the criteria in…

  • Integrate recent advances in Cyber-physical system and put process design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, ‘What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?’

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that – whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc… – they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Cyber-physical system investments work better.

This Cyber-physical system All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person:
