ABSTRACT The management of services is the kernel content of service-oriented manufacturing. However, it is difficult to realise the integration and optimisation of services in an open environment, which contains large amounts randomicity and uncertainty. The key problem is how to realise the optimal service selection and composition. In this article, the comprehensive performance evaluation metrics for service-oriented manufacturing network is proposed, which combines the key performance indicators of services in business, service and implementation level. The performance evaluation model is brought forward to analyse the local and global performance. An uncertainty and genetic algorithm-based method is developed to realise the optimal service selection and composition in effective and efficient way.

    ABSTRACT: Cloud-Based Design and Manufacturing (CBDM) refers to a product realization model that enables collective open innovation and rapid product development with minimum costs through a social networking and negotiation platform between service providers and consumers. Because of the diversity of cyber resources constituting CBDM systems and because CBDM systems are Internet-enabled, cyber-physical platforms, new types of cybersecurity systems that provide real-time, dynamic, and preemptive protection will be needed. In this chapter, an overview will be provided of emerging global-scale cyber information exchange frameworks that will enable this type of cyber protection. Further, a reference architecture utilizing information obtained from global cyber exchanges for dynamic cyber protection of CBDM systems will be proposed.

    ABSTRACT: This paper studies how to effectively provide product service system (PSS) in the supply chain with asymmetric information for service-oriented manufacturing (SOM). With a PSS, the manufacturer chooses the product quality, and the retailer, who possesses private cost information, is responsible for adding necessary value-added service based on the basic product. The analytical underpinnings of our work are provided by the principal-agent paradigm. In the paper, we develop three types of contracts and conduct a detailed comparison among the three contract models. With these studies, we find that: (i) the wholesale price contract is dominated by the other two contracts, (ii) The retail price maintenance contract can always generate a higher profit for the manufacturer and a higher welfare for the consumers, whereas the franchise fee (FF) contract can always generate a higher profit for the retailer and (iii) The FF contract can always stimulate more service from the retailer. Our theoretical and numerical results show that there are significantly different effects when the three types of contracts are utilized in the supply chain for SOM with asymmetric information, and which of them is the most attractive will depend largely on the power structure of the supply chain and/or their cost information types.

    ABSTRACT: The selection, composition and integration of Transport Telematic Services (TTSs) is crucial for achieving cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS). To enable future adaptation, models for selecting and composing TTSs needs to take into account possible future modifications, upgrades or downgrades of different TTSs without tipping off the benefit edge. To achieve this, a Strategic Service Selection Problem (SSSP) for TTSs is presented in this article. The problem involves selecting a set of TTSs that maximizes net societal benefits over a strategic time period, e.g., 10 years. The formulation of the problem offers possibilities to study design alternatives taking into account future modifications, extensions, upgrades or downgrades of different TTSs. Two decisive factors affecting the choices and modifications of TTSs are studied: 1) the effects of allowing market forces to drive the choices of TTSs, and 2) the effect of using Governmental policies to mandate the introduction of TTSs, e.g., Road User Charging and eCall. Case study results indicate that in determining combinations of TTSs that can be deployed in a period of 10 years, enforcing too many TTSs can retard the ability of the market to generate net benefits even though the results could be that more TTSs will be deployed.
