An innovative cloud-terminal-based cyber-physical system (CTCPS) architecture is presented to support energy efficient machining process optimization. The CTCPS consists of four levels: machine level, control level, data level and decision support level. The machine level and control level are composed of all kinds of terminals related to machining process and mainly responsible for monitoring machines and controlling machines to execute the optimal solutions. The data level and decision support level are deployed in cloud for data storage, management and analysis and optimization. Experiments on the practical case shows that the CTCPS is promising and has significant potential of implementation in practice.
