Intelligent Manufacturing System (IMS) shall be considered as a system integrated with different intelligent subsystems, which completes the distributed solution procedure on the basis of exchanging large quantities of materials, energy and information. Any intelligent manufacturing process self-regulates and self-controls itself in manufacturing the products within the design specifications. It incorporates introduction of human-like decision-making capabilities into the manufacturing system that brings the intelligence. The system however requires complete information of the requirements and processing of production system to generate appropriate decisions. This paper provides a comprehensive review of research on web-enabled e-Manufacturing technology which bridges certain aspects of manufacturing system like Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), and Supply Chain Management (SCM). Web-based systems have been implemented to provide remote service and manufacturing for rapid prototyping, enhance the availability of facilities and improve the capability of rapid product development for various enterprises. Web-based technique is utilized to derive the availability of information anytime, anywhere and by the persons who are authorized to deal with it. The e-Manufacturing production system can substantially reduce product cost and delivery cycle for manufacturing systems.
