In this paper, a cloud manufacturing platform, called AMC (Advanced Manufacturing Cloud), is introduced. The AMC provides several manufacturing-related cloud services to facilitate the users to conduct supporting activities for machine tools and offers intelligent devices which can be plugged in various prediction models for performing predictive applications on machine tools. We first describe the architecture design of the AMC and then present methodologies to how to build cloud services and key mechanisms in the AMC. Finally, we construct a paradigm AMC and practically deploy its cloud services and intelligent devices in a public cloud platform and a factory of our cooperative machine tool company, respectively. We also conduct integrated tests to illustrate the efficacy and merits of the AMC.
