Nowadays, firms cannot survive in the highly competitive global economy without innovation. Attempts are made to incorporate innovations by embracing new technologies and applying changes. Interdisciplinary collaboration is an essential key for successful innovation and development of cyber-physical production systems (CPPS) in Industry 4.0. Various enabling technologies and approaches such as model-driven engineering, business process model and notation (BPMN), blockchain, human-machine interfaces and digital twin will be presented in this tutorial through illustrative case studies. The identified development potentials of these technologies and approaches form the basis for new business opportunities. Additionally, an inherent consequence of innovation in CPPS is causing inconsistencies among the system specifications and components. In an interdisciplinary environment where every discipline develops a part of a system separately, identifying inconsistencies becomes even more challenging. Therefore, we need a systematic approach that includes a framework, methods and tools, to support modeling and manage inconsistencies efficiently.
