Abstract

Cloud Manufacturing (CM) refers to a customer-centric manufacturing model that exploits on-demand access to a shared collection of diversified and distributed manufacturing resources to form temporary, reconfigurable production lines which enhance efficiency, reduce product lifecycle costs, and allow for optimal resource loading in response to variable demand customer generated tasking. Our objective is to present the drivers, current status of research and development, and future trends of CM. We also discuss the potential short term and long term impacts of CM on various sectors.
