Cost controlling is an important process and provides information on cost development on your shopfloor. TDM Cost per Part Global Line is a simple software solution that helps you with recording planning costs, real cost development and analysis.
Calculation of planning costs: In order to place the cost calculation on a sound basis, individual usage amounts are calculated for the required wear parts. These are composed of the supplier prices of the items and the maximum machining time in the machining process. To calculate the planning costs, the usage amounts are multiplied by the tool requirements of the tool list and offset against the stored tool life. Decisive parameters here are the tool lives stored for each tool and the planned tool machining times.
Recording the actual tooling costs per workpiece: The actual costs incurred are calculated with the help of the stock movements. I.e., the tools that are actually booked to the machine are used for the calculation. This gives the users transparency as to which tools are in use during the job and how high their consumption or wear is. The basis for the real costs are the tools actually booked to the machine, i.e., the recording of all stock movements to the machine. This means that the tools that are used during the order are recorded.
Transparent cost comparison provides information: Whether after completion of an order or at certain intervals – depending on the requirements, users can check the tooling costs per workpiece. TDM Cost per Part Global Line compares the planning costs with the actual costs incurred. If larger differences become visible, you can start a closer analysis and make decisions: If, for example, the actual costs incurred at any point are constantly higher than the planned costs, the calculation basis can be adjusted. It is possible that a tool does not fulfill the machining conditions from a technological point of view and can be replaced by a different one. In this way, TDM Cost per Part Global Line also enables a continuous process and machining optimization.
