The Shopfloor Manager module is used to organise 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 organisation of the tools and maximum utilisation time of the machines.

TDM Shopfloor Manager 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

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

Integration of machines (optional)

  • The Shopfloor Manager considers 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 considers 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

Shopfloor navigation

  • The Shopfloor Navigator generates the scope of functions and the 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
