Industrial smart product-service system (ISPSS), as an emerging industrial digital servitisation paradigm, has attracted ever-increasing attentions from both industries and academics recently. The prevailing adoption of cutting-edge information and communication technologies, digital technologies and artificial intelligence has enabled the engineering lifecycle management in an ever-smarter manner with context awareness. Nevertheless, little study has provided any systematic process to prescribe its sustainable development throughout the engineering lifecycle, let alone any to consider sustainability in the cyber space other than the physical components. Aiming to fill the gap, this work outlines the definition, key features and social, economic and environmental concerns of the proposed sustainable ISPSS, and further proposes a systematic four-phase cyberphysical development framework by referring to the ISO14001:2015 standards. As a short communication, it is hoped this research can attract more open discussion and in-depth investigation towards sustainable ISPSS development in the near future.
