Abstract [en]

In recent years, cloud manufacturing concept has been proposed by taking advantage of cloud computing to enhance the performance of manufacturing industry. Cloud manufacturing can be perceived as two types, i.e., manufacturing version of computing cloud, and a distributed environment that is networked around manufacturing cloud. This paper discusses manufacturing resources, abilities and relevant essentials from the service-oriented perspective. The functional requirements of a cloud manufacturing environment are also discussed, along with an interoperable manufacturing system framework. Cloud resource integration methods have been developed based on the function block and software agent technologies. It is possible to achieve a collaborative, intelligent, and distributed environment via cloud manufacturing technologies.
