This paper proposes a classification framework for performance metrics for smart manufacturing systems. The discussion focuses on agility, asset utilization, and sustainability, and we discuss classification themes for each of these areas that lead to the development of a generalized classification framework. Such a framework is useful when selecting metrics that assure enhanced performance of smart manufacturing systems. We discuss a conceptual model for performance metrics 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.
