A consistent Tool Lifecycle Management system makes tool data and graphics available in the planning and manufacturing systems of a metal cutting company. TDM integrates these systems, allows data to flow and enables optimal processes. Tool data can make a big difference – if it reaches the right systems at the right time.
High-quality data is essential for good tool management. But not only that. After all, what good is the best data if it is not available to all production systems and operating areas? Interfaces are needed so that the tool data can flow seamlessly through the entire production chain and through the systems.
