This paper proposed a classification scheme for performance metrics for smart manufacturing systems. The discussion focused on three such metrics: agility, asset utilization, and sustainability. For each of these metrics, we discussed classification themes, which we then used to develop a generalized classification scheme. In addition to the themes, we discussed a conceptual model that may form the basis for the information necessary for performance evaluations. Finally, we present future challenges in developing robust, performance-measurement systems for real-time, data-intensive enterprises.
