CyberManufacturing System is an advanced vision for future manufacturing where physical components are fully integrated and seamlessly networked with computational processes, forming an on-demand, intelligent, and communicative manufacturing resource and capability repository with optimal and sustainable manufacturing solutions. The CyberManufacturing System utilizes recent developments in Internet of things, cloud computing, fog computing, service-oriented technologies, among others. Manufacturing resources and capabilities can be encapsulated, registered, and connected to each other directly or through the Internet, thus enabling intelligent behaviors of manufacturing components and systems such as self-awareness, self-prediction, self-optimization, and self-configuration. This research presents an introduction to the CyberManufacturing System, establishing the architecture and functions of the CyberManufacturing System, designing the pivotal control strategy, and investigating the performance analysis of the CyberManufacturing System using modeling and simulation techniques. In total, five component-level examples and one system-level case study have been developed and used for illustration and validation of the CyberManufacturing System operations. The results show that the CyberManufacturing System is superior to other types of manufacturing systems in terms of functionality and cooperative performance.
