Abstract

As new technologies and advanced networks play an increasing important role in manufacturing, many enterprises are suffering from unknown and unpredictable situations, termed "uncertainties". The aim of this paper is to provide an approach to evaluate the importance of uncertainties in Cloud Manufacturing. The Simple Multi-Attribute Rating Technique (SMART) was used in this research to assess uncertainties that exist in Cloud Manufacturing. Additionally, a Microsoft Excel assessment tool has been developed to help decision makers identify uncertainties and determine the weight of uncertainty in Cloud Manufacturing.
