The Agility Performance of Robotic Systems (APRS) project at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is using Web Ontology Language (OWL) ontologies for modeling in a robotic kitting workstation. The new technical idea for the APRS project is to develop the measurement science in the form of an integrated agility framework enabling manufacturers to assess and assure the agility performance of their robot systems. This framework includes robot agility performance metrics, information models, test methods, and protocols. This paper focuses on the information models and describes how they are used to introduce robot agility for the kitting domain. OWL class model files are generated automatically from XML schema model files. Files of OWL instances conforming to an OWL class model are generated automatically from XML instance files by automatically built translators.
