Traditionally, machine equipment manufacturers match new metalworking suppliers through yellow pages and websites, which is inefficient and not timely for supplier information transfer. In this article, a cloud-based supplier matching system is proposed to offer machine equipment manufacturers an efficient way to match suitable metalworking suppliers. A cloud architecture to enhance utilization of servers and simplified device management is designed. Two cloud services are designed in this system, including order-bidding service and order-cooperation service. A comparison result shows that the system can provide a flexible matching system for both metalworking suppliers and machine equipment manufacturers.
