With the inception of high-speed internet data services and ever-growing technical advancement in manufacturing technology, the integration of production systems and the internet of things to produce different types of jobs via cloud computing has become possible. The internet-enabled advanced automatic production systems can be referred to as the cyber-physical production systems (CPPS). The use of CPPS via cloud computing and the internet of things (IoT) can offer high productivity and high

The aim of this paper is to present a generalized synergic framework between different production facilities locating at different geographical locations to realize an energy-saving and efficient cyber-physical production system for the production of different types of jobs in the context of the industry 4.0 and beyond. In addition to the above, the study also identifies a need to address large scale multi-objective optimization issues to make the best decisions for different combinatorial production scenarios by using CPPS that are functioning in smart production facilities at different geographical locations.
