Abstract. Smart Cyber-Physical Systems, introduced by Horizon2020, are the foundation of Industry 4.0 due to the communication between collective intelligent physical devices. Although this means that shared challenges are to be addresses in various domains, it is not expected from industries to track the solutions in domains different from theirs. However, only when people in industries have a sufficient background in other domains' concepts and challenges, they can match the challenges in other use cases to theirs. Unfortunately, this depends on knowledge of individuals rather than a proper scientific method. In this paper, we present a systematic review of sCPS case studies that allows us to identify the domains addressing similar challenges. We group the industrial use cases according to their challenges and map them to the domains.
