Design and Implementation of a Cyber-Physical Production System for Personalized Skin Care: A Microservices Approach

Michael Christian Oberle and Phillip Dreiss
Abstract—Increased customer expectations towards product individuality require companies to build up capabilities for the production of personalized products. This capability can be enabled by leveraging cyber-physical production systems. This paper aims at exploring the design and implementation of an architecture for a cyber-physical production system for the specific case of manufacturing personalized skin care products. The most important requirement identified for this case is flexibility. Skin care products and its ingredients vary according to market and customer segment which has a strong impact on all components involved in the manufacturing process. Analysis of the manufacturing task sequence identified the need of cyber components in the cloud and on devices. The proposed solution is a microservices architecture with five sub-systems, skin measurement, elicitation, formulation, mini-factory and management that can be changed in a flexible way. The architecture has been implemented and confirmed in a demonstration scenario.

Index Terms—Cyber-physical production system, manufacturing services, cloud manufacturing, service-oriented architecture.
