© 2015 Taylor & Francis. Cloud manufacturing offers a new paradigm in providing on-demand manufacturing services. This should offer benefits to both large organisations, and small and micro manufacturing service users and providers. It is not clear, however, how user requirements might diverge, or show consistency, depending on the size of the organisation. The paper compares two requirements gathering activities – one with major international organisations, and the other with ‘cottage’ industries – to compare how their needs, expectations and capabilities will influence their engagement with the manufacturing cloud.
