In this knowledge-intensive world, knowledge contributes to the access and utilization of manufacturing resources as the most important intelligent resource. With the development of network technology, cloud manufacturing (CMfg) is proposed to meet the emerging requirement for high-efficiency, energy-saving, and service-orientated manufacturing. Focusing on the situation of the distributed and heterogeneous knowledge resources in Group Corporation, this paper presents a knowledge organization and representation model to support knowledge fusion (KF) and service. Meanwhile, a framework of KF and service is constructed to improve the efficiency of knowledge resource usage and the quality of knowledge services (KSs) in CMfg.
