OSCM is implemented as cloud-based platform for spawning and organizing networks of manufacturing resources here, we consider computer numerical control or CNC machines, i.e., 3-D printers, CNC Mills or Lathes and other such machines as manufacturing resources provisioned and managed over the internet. The layered architecture developed consists of hardware, virtualization edge, operating system cloud, and network end-point layers. In this project, using modern webcloud development technology, we developed an operating system for manufacturing that services and virtualizes manufacturing resources so that they can be attached to a network. This operating system offers a new and much-needed model for physical manufacturing resources and application software distribution in Digital ManufacturingIndustry 4.0. The platform is designed with a micro-service architecture, that is used for manufacturing nodes and software applications or assets, and implemented in a Mongo, Express, Angular, Node MEAN stack.
