Cloud-based manufacturing (CBM) has recently been proposed as an emerging manufacturing paradigm that may potentially change the way manufacturing services are provided and accessed. In the context of CBM, companies may opt to crowdsource part of their manufacturing tasks that are beyond their existing in-house manufacturing capacity to third-party CBM service providers by renting their manufacturing equipment instead of purchasing additional machines. To plan manufacturing scalability for CBM… 
Diverse task scheduling for individualized requirements in cloud manufacturing
A scheduling method aiming for diverse tasks, which enables each service demander to obtain desired manufacturing services is proposed, which is able to achieve better performance than some usual algorithms such as simulated annealing and pattern search.
