How do you manage your Tools for production? | 8 September, 2014

I'm about to start a project to install some controls on our tooling for production, such, stencil, fixtures, feeders, press-fit tools, WS pallets, etc... How do you deal with that? I know there are some software solutions that may work, but what actually do you use? we have about 700 feeders (3 different platform), ~100 WS Pallets, ~150 Fixtures, ~500 Press-fit Tools, etc, etc..

Any Idea how to start?

Jorge,

If the tooling in question is specific to certain jobs, we'd suggest carrying that tooling on the BOM for that job. Simply assign an internal part number, and assign that part to the BOM. You'll likely have to engrave the p/n or label the tooling in some way; but, it'll give you inventory control and floor tracking abilities.

Cheers, ..rob
