Production equipment management made easy
Tool Lifecycle Management is the IT strategy for production equipment. It includes tool organization in all phases of planning and production. The TDM software makes it quick and easy to retrieve tools. It helps assemble the tools correctly and prepare the machines ok. The production equipment management software increases quality and displays the availability of all resources needed for an order. The simplified entry of data significantly increases efficiency and overall performance. Each function of TDM is a building block of a well-functioning Tool Lifecycle Management system.
Tool Lifecycle Management is a link between ERP, PLM, and MES. It secures communication between the systems for planning and production. Tool Lifecycle Management captures tool data and graphics and then makes these available in the CAM and simulation processes. It also manages the physical organization of the tool circulation on the shopfloor level.
