Smart Manufacturing Systems based on Cyber-physical Manufacturing Services (CPMS)



Yan Lu, Feng Ju


The future of manufacturing lies in being smart – capable of agilely adapting to a wide variety of changing conditions. To enable an agile manufacturing system, production plants, supply chains and logistic systems have to be flexible in design and reconfigurable on the fly to respond quickly to customer needs, production uncertainty, and market changes. With the introduction of Internet of Things (IoT) technology to manufacturing and the concept of cyber-physical production systems, a promising approach to realize manufacturing agility is Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), which has been proved effective for business process adaptation and expected to revolutionize real time manufacturing in a similar fashion. The objective of this paper is to discuss the design perspectives for service oriented smart manufacturing systems based on a concept of cyber physical manufactur-ing services (CPMS). A modeling framework is proposed to provide appropriate conceptual models for developing and describing CPMS and enabling their compositions. Specifically, the modeling framework separates service provision models from service request models and proposes to use standardized functional taxonomies and a reference ontology to facilitate the mediation between service requests and service consumptions. Implementing a SOA based smart manufacturing system based on the proposed modeling framework is illustrated through a 3D printing use case.
