Traditional networked food processing systems are designed in large part to utilize resources with limited ability to rapidly share or spread below certain efficiency. The increase in demand variability created by food enterprises presents new challenges to increase resources usage and improve market response. This paper aimed to investigate and emphasize the importance of manufacturing grid system regarding the nature of sharing. The investigation was conducted to critically review the literature on expected potential problems associated with high loads and islanding resources sharing of networked food processing as well as grid technology. Efficiency of both resource usage and balance of system are decreasing in traditional food industrials as well as rapid response. The technical utility requirements from distributed food industrials need to be satisfied to ensure the effiency of and the reliability of the utility manufacturing grid. Identifying the technical requirements for grid interconnection and solving the interconnect problems are therefore very important issues for widespread application of manufacturing grid systems. It is strongly recommended that manufacturing grid system should be operated.
