This paper presents a novel approach to implementing cyber-physical systems (CPS) using the combined strength of holons, agents and function blocks. Within the context, a CPS is represented by a holarchy of multiple holons. Each holon possesses a logical part and a physical part, which mimic the cyber and physical entities of the CPS. During implementation, the two parts of a holon are realised by agents and function blocks for information processing and materials processing, respectively. The objective of this research is to provide a concept map and associate a CPS with holons, agents and function blocks for the ease of system implementation in decentralised or cloud environment.
