Current development in emerging technologies, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), service-oriented and high-performance computing combined with the increasing advancement of manufacturing technologies and information systems, triggered a new manufacturing model. Modern industrial automation domain is characterized by heterogeneous equipment encompassing distinct functions, network interfaces and I/O specifications and controlled by distinct software/hardware platforms. To cope with such specificity, manufacturing enterprises are demanding for new service-oriented models that aimoc to abstract physical systems in terms of their functionalities/capabilities. In this scenario, Cloud Manufacturing (CMfg) arises as a new networked, service-oriented, customer centric and demand driven paradigm where manufacturing resources and capabilities are virtualized as services available in the cloud to users.
