Modern manufacturing systems are increasingly characterized by using of complex machines, tools and electronics components. Especially a proportion of electronics and software has increased steadily in recent years. Challenge of this progression is the complexity of manufacturing systems during designing, integrating and operating. Based on a product lifecycle -PL- this article introduces an integrated method for systemdesign, which supports engineering and management of safety/security for digital manufacturing systems. This method was practically established during a planning and implementation of digital manufacturing system at the university of applied sciences “Technikum Wien”. The outcomes of this method – integrated safety and security (ISS) - ought to help the factory designers, integrators and users for (re)designing, operating and maintaining of machines, robots as far work-cells. The future work is to build simple software tool to support small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) for decision making during evaluation of risk assessment and management.
