Tool Management

Managing Tools, Measuring Tool Use and Costs as well as Increasing Efficiency

Cosmino ToolManagement

The module Cosmino ToolManagement provides the management of individually identifiable standard and special tools. Along with tool service life and tool life quantity, repairs and other operations on the tool are planned in the form of projects and recorded, with the inclusion of effort and costs.

This creates a life cycle for each tool. Many evaluations and analyses round off the solution and promote the optimal use of the tool.

Areas of Application

Tools must be repaired regularly to be available in the respective quality for the production process, and thus to minimize change times and unplanned tool changes.

Cosmino ToolManagement additionally takes the direct costs of the tool into account. Figures such as “maintenance costs per tool life” can be calculated and monitored by combining use and maintenance costs.

It is possible to use Cosmino ToolManagement independently from other Cosmino modules. But the recording of tool service life and tool life quantity can take place via the module Cosmino ToolControl. Cosmino DynaMon enables the analysis of recorded data in the form of evaluations. Maintenance measures on the tool can be planned and activated with Cosmino PreventiveAction.
