The purpose of this paper is to collect and structure the various features of Smart Manufacturing (SM). Researchers have previously identified various characteristics and technologies of Smart Manufacturing System (SMS); this paper collects, discusses and merges some of those characteristics and technologies available in the current body of knowledge. In the future, it is expected that this selection of characteristics and technologies will help to compare and distinguish other initiatives like Industry 4.0, smart factory, intelligent manufacturing, distributive manufacturing, etc. which are frequently used synonymous with SM. The result of this paper is a comprehensive list of characteristics and technologies that are associated with a SMS. As many of the listed items show variating overlaps, certain technologies and characteristics are merged and clustered. This results in a set of five defining characteristics and ten technologies that are considered relevant for a SMS. The authors hope to provide a basis for a broad and interdisciplinary discussion within the SM community about the defining technologies and characteristics of a SMS.
