A Hierarchical Structure of Service-Oriented Manufacturing Mode
With fiercer competition and more complex manufacturing environment, as a new manufacturing mode, service-oriented manufacture integrating manufacturing and service is used to mine new value source for manufacturing enterprises. The characteristics of the new manufacturing mode are analyzed, then a conceptual mode of the service-oriented manufacturing is concluded, and the features of the conceptual model are summarized from three different stages of the upstream, midstream and downstream. Based on these, a hierarchical architecture of service-oriented manufacturing mode is presented, and the different layers are described, which will provide good guideline to study the key technologies of service-oriented manufacturing.
