In recent years, cloud manufacturing has brought both opportunities and challenges to the manufacturing industry. Cloud manufacturing enables global manufacturing resources to be unified and shared, thus breaking down geographical constraints to enhance the level and efficiency of manufacturing. However, with the explosive growth of manufacturing resources and user demands, traditional cloud manufacturing platforms will face problems of insufficient computility, lack of real‐time data and difficulties in securing user privacy during the service selection process. In this article, a blockchain‐based decentralized cloud manufacturing service selection method is proposed, where the computility resource is deployed in multiple distributed nodes rather than the traditional centralized cloud manufacturing platform to solve the problem of insufficient computility. The credibility of the users is evaluated based on their performance on the contract and the PBFT consensus algorithm is improved based on the credibility of the users. In addition, a tri‐chain blockchain data storage model is designed to ensure the security, real‐time and transparency of data in the cloud manufacturing service selection process. The experimental results show that the method both speeds up service selection process and improves the quality of service selection results, and achieves a significant increase in manufacturing efficiency.
