Concerning the knowledge-intensive environment, the paper introduces Semantic Web(SW) technology to Manufacturing Grid (MGrid). Resources and services in MGrid are described in the well-defined meaning, so that computers can understand resource and service information to interoperate seamlessly. In the paper, a semantic-aware MGrid architecture (SAMGA) based on WS-Resource Framework (WSRF) is first presented, in which the stateless Web Services are semantically described using OWL-S and the stateful resource descriptions are semantically enhanced using OWL. Then a semantic matching algorithm is proposed for SAMGA. Finally, SAMGA has been applied to the magnetic bearing resource and service sharing platform (MBRSSP).
