Due to the increasing turbulence of the manufacturing environment, the number of reconfigurations on Assembly Manufacturing Resources (AMRs) rises. Hence, evaluation of reconfigurability is becoming more and more important. Nevertheless, no structured key performance indicator (KPI) system exists for the evaluation yet. Therefore, in this paper an existing DSM-based evaluation methodology is upgraded. For these reasons two categories of KPIs are defined in this paper: structural and economic KPIs. Structural KPIs and their interactions are described, economic KPIs structured, their relations shown and implemented into a KPI system. The KPIs facilitate for instance investment processes. In order to support the use of the methodology, a software tool to execute the methodology and to gather the relevant KPIs was developed. An example states the determination of chosen KPIs.
