Key Challenges

Companies are often blind to when a tool will require maintenance or reach EOL​

1. Streamline deployment of your supplier assessment programs.
2. Creates production stoppages / reduced production when a tool breaks or is highly worn
3. Surprise EOL notices reduce flexibility in sourcing of replacement tools and less negotiation power for customers​

Inventory of Tools often kept in a separate system to BOM and often not current​

1. When a tool is out of service, the affected Part Numbers (PN’s) are identified and then manually looked up in a separate Tooling Asset system – slow and onerous
2. Tool inventory systems are often incorrect (location, whether tool has been scrapped, etc)

Quality Issues

1.Lack of predictability of maintenance needs can lead to quality issues and running tooling in suboptimal condition​
2. Increased exposure to external claims from customers​
