Cyber-physical systems consisting of networks of interacting systems are often developed by distributed teams in a production environment. Processes, tools and work products supporting development of cyber-physical systems are continuously evolving through the different design phases. A growing trend to manage the development process has been the use of model-based development approaches. However, these approaches primarily use behavioral models to represent complex systems, rendering them inadequate to address collaborative and non-functional program requirements. This paper discusses an architecture-driven process that can address the challenges posed during the development of cyber-physical systems. Two key enabling technologies – the SAE AADL (Architecture Analysis and Design Language) and the IME (Integrated Modeling Environment) are leveraged in this process.
