TDM Shopfloor Manager Global Line

TDM Shopfloor Manager Global Line optimizes the shopfloor organization of tools

The TDM Shopfloor Manager Global Line module records the entire tool circulation. This helps to achieve optimum utilization of tools on the shopfloor.

Shopfloor organization

The module for shopfloor organization is used to organize digital tool management in the production environment. Visual planning of the production processes guides users through the individual tool circulation stations in a targeted manner: From the tool crib to the machine.

The software module supports various, individually configurable tool processes on the shopfloor. This delivers a high degree of transparency in the shopfloor organization of the tools and maximum utilization time of the machines.

Optimizing shopfloor processes

TDM Shopfloor Manager implements time-accurate and correct tool provision for the active and subsequent NC operations on the machine. Using TDM Shopfloor Manager software means that missing or incorrectly set tools are a thing of the past.

This brings the tool-related machine downtimes to a minimum. Superfluous logistics costs or unnecessary tool disassembly are then also eliminated. Tool preparation becomes more efficient, shopfloor processes more secure, and machine utilization higher.

Shopfloor organization of the tools with the TDM Shopfloor Manager Global Line

Our software module includes a large number of functions that will also help optimize your shopfloor and its processes:

Shopfloor Designer

  • The Shopfloor Designer configures the individual tool data flow in the individual shopfloor areas
  • TDM provides a number of ready-made software operations, which result in status-led process control of the tool circulation


Integration of machines (optional)

  • The Shopfloor Manager takes into account real machine stocks and conditions of the tools, which helps with tool planning
  • Optional integration of suitable subsystems and machines
  • Reliable transfer of tool data (tool offsets)
  • Demand planning takes into account the real remaining tool life or conditions of the tools, which facilitates optimum tool life management
  • Automated operations, such as requests for Duplo tools and ad-hoc provision on the machine, simplify processes on the shopfloor

Demand calculation

  • Tool provision is based on the tool requirements of the machines
  • The software module enters the calculated tool requirements in a pick list
  • ERP or MES systems transfer the production orders via interfaces
  • The unloading list displays tools that are no longer needed on the machine
  • The shopfloor organization records externally generated demand lists in parallel and processes these further as pick lists
  • Standard interfaces to production control systems of various manufacturers are used to transfer the demand lists


Shopfloor navigation

  • The Shopfloor Navigator generates the scope of functions and operator processes from the configuration
  • The Shopfloor Manager Global Line depicts the work areas as cost centers, whereby the module activates the operations for provision of tools executed in this based on status
  • Users can distribute individual areas, such as crib/assembly and presetting, to various workplaces, as well as merging these in a Tool Room

The benefits speak for themselve!

Today, a digital shopfloor process is unavoidable if you are looking to stay one step ahead of the competition. Our TDM Shopfloor Manager Global Line pays for itself several times:

Cost savings
Reliable demand planning increases the profitability of the tools and optimizes tool use, including seamless monitoring.

Time saving
TDM Global Line reduces the time required for picking the order – from crib withdrawal, through assembly, all the way up to presetting of the tools.

Individual, digitalized tool provision
The software module configures the procedures for tool provision in various production areas, specifies these, and visualizes the production process.

Optimized processes
Calculation of demand and the order minimizes preparation time by creating difference lists, as well as loading and unloading lists. The module takes into account the real tool stocks and conditions on the machines.
