In recent years, Cloud manufacturing has become a new research trend in manufacturing systems leading to the next generation of production paradigm. However, the interoperability issue still requires more research due to the heterogeneous environment caused by multiple Cloud services and applications developed in different platforms and languages. Therefore, this research aims to combat the interoperability issue in Cloud Manufacturing System. During implementation, the industrial users, especially Small- and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs), are normally short of budget for hardware and software investment due to financial stresses, but they are facing multiple challenges required by customers at the same time including security requirements, safety regulations. Therefore in this research work, the proposed Cloud manufacturing system is specifically tailored for SMEs.
