Nowadays, service-oriented manufacturing systems (e.g., cloud manufacturing, product service systems, etc.) have attracted more and more interesting and attention of researchers from many different fields. However, because of the complex and dynamic environment, one of the most important issues that need to be addressed for the promotion and application of cloud manufacturing system is the dynamic supply-demand matching of manufacturing resource services. In this paper, the strategy problems of matching efforts are investigated for a supply chain with resource sharing, where the considered supply chain under cost sharing contract consists of two independent and competing manufacturers and a resource service platform. Firstly, we use a differential equation to model the evolution of manufacturing resources' sharing level and depict the effect of the matching efforts on market demand. By applying the two-stage differential game, the optimal matching strategies are obtained based on the presented optimal control model. Subsequently, the cost sharing contract is designed to coordinate and improve the performance of the supply chain. Finally, a numerical example is provided to illustrate the impacts of the platform transaction fee and the purchasing cost on the feasible region of the corresponding contract.
