Abstract

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the key facilitator for digital manufacturing (Industry 4.0, Cyber-physical Systems), as well as for smart, intelligent products, services and processes. In the IoT, increasingly many product and process functions become safety-critical and exposed to IT security attacks. This adds tremendous complexity to product and process design, which this paper shows by using the automotive sector as a particularly challenging example. The article proposes a new logic and method for tackling the major challenges of design for functional safety and IT security which is essentially based on reducing the design solutions’ complexities by integration.
