Architecture and Resource Integration for P2P Semantic Manufacturing Grid
Manufacturing Grid aims at looking for an innovative next generation inter-organizational collaborative environment. A new architecture named P2P Semantic Manufacturing Grid (P2PSMG) was introduced in this research, which adopts ontology as a common language to help different participants to understand each other, and works in a semantic grid service oriented Napster style. The means of resource integration under this architecture was emphatically studied, by which service providers virtualize their manufacturing resources, encapsulate them into multi-granularity services based on resource ontology, and then submit their semantic descriptions to a third party registry for integration and discovery. A prototype system was developed, by which the feasibility of the means of resource integration introduced in this research is validated.
