PAS 1192-5:2015 Specification for security-minded building information modelling, digital built environments and smart asset management, defines a 'cyber-physical system' (CPS) as a:
'system designed as an entity, or set of entities, with a specific purpose, or to meet a capability objective'
It suggests that a CPS should, '...include a computational aspect (cyber) and a physical aspect working together to accomplish a task or function. The cyber aspect has a controlling or influencing role over the physical parts of the system, for example, a complex environmental conditioning system for a building or pressure and flow control systems in a utility network.'
