This work addresses the social sensors and the cyber-physical system (CPS) nodes, and incorporates them into the cyber-physical-social system (CPSS) platform to facilitate the personalized production under social manufacturing environment. Social sensors deal with the social data sensing in social interactions among customers, enterprises, and other stakeholders. CPS nodes deal with the industrial data gathering and distributed production self-control in enterprises. By incorporating social sensors and CPS nodes, CPSS platform bridges the gap between different stakeholders when facing the collaborative and personalized production. Customer requirements can be easily sensed by social sensors and further extracted via social big data analysis. The production state of orders can be achieved in real-time via CPS nodes and industrial big data fusing for both enterprises and customers. CPSS platform is firstly proposed to interconnect the cyber space, physical space, and social space among different stakeholders in personalized production to achieve flexibility, efficiency, and a win-win situation.
