Rapid development in ICT and production engineering and the subsequent joining of both fields result currently in the creation of cyber-physical production systems. With these new technologies innovative didactic concepts are required to cope with new arising tasks on the job and in the development of such systems. Learning environments have proven to be effective instruments for developing competence in manufacturing training and education. To enable development of competence on cyber-physical production processes and systems a design approach for implementation in learning environments is presented. A case study illustrates the proposed implementation framework in a real learning factory.
