Abstract [en]

CManufacturing is a new manufacturing model that has evolved from Service-Oriented Architecture, networked manufacturing and CComputing. It provides intelligent, interoperable and distributed manufacturing model for the industry. This paper introduces a resource integration mechanism in the Cloud Manufacturing environment. Function Block technology is discussed from the Cloud Manufacturing perspective in detail. Next, a novel integration mechanism is proposed, namely the Virtual Function Block. Based on physical Function Blocks and software agents, Virtual Function Blocks are able to manipulate and integrate manufacturing resources via event states and data flows. During implementation, Creo Parametric was integrated as a Cloud Service with the help of VFBs to evaluate the mechanism.
