A Workflow and Cloud Based Service-Oriented Architecture for Distributed Manufacturing in Industry 4.0 Context

In Industry 4.0, manufacturing organizations have to become more flexible and agile to stay competitive in the marketplace. Industry and academia focus on sharing globally distributed manufacturing resources and capabilities. This shift to collaborative environment calls for a service dominant logic in which reusable services model entire production processes. Accordingly, service-oriented architectures have been under spotlight by researchers to integrate distributed capabilities and resources of manufacturing. In this article, we identify rapidly developing relevant IT fields, state-of-the-art service-oriented manufacturing approaches, and discuss related challenges with those approaches. Then we introduce a higher-level workflow and cloud based service-oriented architecture for (1) individuals to design and prototype products, (2) manufacturing organizations to focus on their core competencies and find complementary services for part of their production processes, and (3) manufacturing organizations to publish their idle capabilities and resources as services. We investigate these potential impacts and more in the next manufacturing era.


A Cloud Manufacturing Application for Additive Manufacturing Methods
Haseltalab, Vahid; Yaman, Ulaş (2019-01-01)
Over the past years, the manufacturing industry has witnessed a great enhancement in the field of Additive Manufacturing that allows forming an inchoate market to produce custom-made products with low unit costs. At the same time, everyone may be a designer as well. However, the required equipment is only accessible for all the people. The Cloud Manufacturing aims to resolve this challenge by connecting the customers to the manufacturers. Therefore, this paper introduces a practical fabrication method for 3...
An Interoperability Service Utility for Collaborative Supply Chain Planning across Multiple Domains Supported by RFID Devices (iSURF)
Doğaç, Asuman(2010-6-31)
Today's competitive and demanding world of business requires new networked applications and services capable of interoperation across variety of business domains and organizations of all sizes. iSURF will provide an intelligent collaborative supply chain planning network that will: 1.Realize a knowledge-oriented inter-enterprise collaboration environment in which distributed intelligence of multiple trading partners will be exploited in the planning and fulfillment of customer demand in the supply chain. 2...
A lessons-learned tool for organizational learning in construction
Eken, Görkem; Dikmen Toker, İrem; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat (Elsevier BV, 2020-02-01)
Organizational learning has been identified as a core competency for project-based companies with industry specific challenges. In this study, it is hypothesized that a web-based lessons learned management system may help construction companies to manage lessons learned effectively. A lessons learned management process model (LLMPM) was proposed for capturing and transferring knowledge across projects. Expert review meetings with participants from both academia and private sector were carried out to develop...
A novel hybrid method using fuzzy decision making and multi-objective programming for sustainable-reliable supplier selection in two-echelon supply chain design
Tirkolaee, Erfan Babaee; Mardani, Abbas; Dashtian, Zahra; Soltani, Mehdi; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm (Elsevier BV, 2020-03-20)
Recently, large companies have shown a growing tendency to enhance the reliability and sustainability of their supply chains to increase customers' satisfaction in terms of on-time fulfillment of demands and to be compatible with environmental regulations. Therefore, finding the best approaches to achieve companies' goals is a crucial concern in supply chain management, and the majority of organizations prefer to cooperate with reliable and sustainable companies. In designing a supply chain, the supplier se...
An End-to-End Security Auditing Approach for Service Oriented Architectures
AZARMİ, Mehdi; BHARGAVA, Bharat; Angın, Pelin; RANCHAL, Rohit; AHMED, Norman; SİNCLAİR, Asher; LİNDERMAN, Mark; BEN OTHMANE, Lotfi (2012-10-11)
Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is becoming a major paradigm for distributed application development in the recent explosion of Internet services and cloud computing. However, SOA introduces new security challenges not present in the single-hop client-server architectures due to the involvement of multiple service providers in a service request. The interactions of independent service domains in SOA could violate service policies or SLAs. In addition, users in SOA systems have no control on what happens...
