This contribution offers an integrated view of an agile development process for cyber-physical systems which includes the creative stages and the technical implementation in one methodology. First, three project examples from different engineering disciplines(machinery and plant engineering, software engineering, product development) are described. Based on the observation findings from these projects a first approach for an agile product development process for cyber-physical products considering the outputs of Design Thinking is presented. As backbone serves the integrated product and process modelling theory CPM/PDD. The overall process reflects three different perspectives: stakeholder, product owner and development team. The artefacts from the different process steps are formalized in the product model approach from the CPM/PDD theory, independent from the product disciplines. With transformation operations these elements from the different stages can be transferred to each other.

Keywords: CPM / PDD, agile development, design thinking, creativity, cyber-physical systems
