The IEEE RAS Ontologies for Robotics and Automation Working Group is dedicated to developing a methodology for knowledge representation and reasoning in robotics and automation. As part of this working group, the Industrial Robots sub-group is tasked with studying industrial applications of the knowledge representation. One of the first areas of interest for this subgroup is the area of kit building or kitting. It is anticipated that utilization of the knowledge representation will allow for the development of higher performing kitting systems. However, the definition of "higher performing" has yet to be defined. This paper addresses this issue by providing the basis for performance methods and metrics that are designed to determine the performance of a kitting system.
