Abstract: As two emerging terms in industry field, “Industry 4.0” and “Cyber-Physical System” have attracted an increasing amount of attention from both researchers and manufactures. Available advanced technologies brought by these terms, offers possible solutions and improvements for future maintenance. The purpose of the thesis is to identify how Industry 4.0 integrates with Cyber-Physical Systems regarding maintenance management and the requirements for companies to reach the ideal smart factory. Two researcher questions were studied to fulfill the purpose. Firstly, identifying the integration between Industry 4.0 and CPS regarding maintenance functions. Secondly, to investigate how such integration contribute to maintenance management in an ideal future factory.
