Service-Oriented Manufacturing Execution Systems Supported by IPSS
Manufacturing execution systems (MESs) are important information systems in workshop-level. Nowadays, industrial product service systems (iPSSs) are used to decrease the cost by providing professional services for the usages and management of machine tools and their attachments like cutters in manufacturing. This paper studies framework of a workshop-level service-oriented manufacturing execution systems (So-MES) which is supported by industrial product service systems. The framework of the So-MES is built through enabling four basic functions: planning functions, execution functions, service functions and resource functions. Finally, methods for the resource of e-service and product management service are discussed as key enabling techniques in this paper.
