Cloud Computing is the new enabling technology that offers centralised computing, flexible data storage, and scalable services. In the manufacturing context, it is possible to extend the Cloud technology for integrating and provisioning manufacturing facilities and capabilities in terms of Cloud services. In this paper, a function block-based integration mechanism is developed to integrate various types of manufacturing facilities. A Cloud-based architecture is also deployed to provide a service pool which maintains these facilities in terms of manufacturing services. The proposed framework and mechanisms are evaluated by implementations. In practice, it is possible to establish an integrated manufacturing environment across multiple levels with the support of manufacturing Cloud and function blocks. It provides a flexible architecture as well as adaptive and integration methodologies for the Cloud manufacturing system.
