Abstract. In this paper, specific practices are proposed for better managing CPS projects, called CPS-PMBOK approach. CPS-PMBOK is based on the Project Management Institute's PMBOK body of knowledge. It is focused on the integration, scope, human resource and stakeholder knowledge areas; which were chosen considering a systematic literature review conducted to identify the main CPS challenges.
