This paper attempts to minimize the makespan and cost and balance the load rate of the process scheduling of cloud manufacturing resources. For this purpose, a multiobjective scheduling model was established to achieve the minimal makespan, minimal cost and balanced load rate. Next, the cat swarm optimization (CSO) and the firefly algorithm (FA) were combined into a hybrid multi-objective scheduling algorithm. Finally, the hybrid algorithm was verified through CloudSim simulation. The simulation results show that the algorithm output the optimal scheduling plan in a short time. This research not only provides an effective way to find the global optimal solution, within the shortest possible time, to the process scheduling problem of cloud manufacturing resources with multiple objectives, but also promotes the application of swarm intelligence algorithms in job-shop scheduling problems.
