Software for Shopfloor Management

Digital Shopfloor Management

Be one step ahead of the competition with TDM

The utilization of machines is an important topic in industry. Digitalization offers manufacturing companies the opportunity to optimize their processes and reduce machine downtimes. The shopfloor management software is a central element of a networked production. It delivers tools and data to the right machine at the right time.

TDM digitizes the shopfloor

Many different systems are involved in the completion of a workpiece: ERP, PLM/CAD, FMS/MES applications and the machine itself. The TDM software connects the individual links in the production chain and secures an end-to-end data flow.

The shopfloor management software facilitates more efficient production by:

  • scheduling and preparing the tool assemblies for each order in advance
  • calculating tool usage
  • creating lists of required tools and
  • taking into account the tool stock on the machine

Another advantage: The data from the machine flows back into the TDM database. This helps improve the workflows of subsequent orders. Thanks to the continuous process of improvements, Tool Data Management develops into Tool Lifecycle Management.
