Cloud Manufacturing and Cloud Service is currently one of the main directions of development in the manufacturing industry. Under the Cloud Manufacturing environment, the characteristics of publishing, updating, searching, and accessing manufacturing resources are massive, complex, heterogeneous, and so forth. A bilayer manufacturing resource model with separation of Cloud End and Cloud Manufacturing Platform is proposed in this paper. In Cloud End, manufacturing resources are divided into single resource and complex resource, and a basic data model of manufacturing resources oriented to enterprise interior is established to store the physical characteristics. In Cloud Manufacturing Platform, a resource service attribute model oriented to actual users is established to store the service characteristics. This model is described in detail and realized with stateful Web Service Description Language (WSDL) document. An example is provided for illustrating the implementation of the concept. © 2013 Linan Zhu et al.
