Abstract

We envision that manufacturing would be operated in a more integrated and collaborative fashion in the future. A Manufacturing Grid would be created for low-cost and high productivity productions through controlled resource sharing across enterprises just like a computational Grid. All participants (i.e., factories) in the Manufacturing Grid will provide designated production services for making different products. This paper introduces such an innovative concept. A formal model defining how a Manufacturing Grid will operate in the future is proposed. A simplified application is prototyped.
