Reduce both crib costs and crib inventories

TDM organizes your crib inventories, and thereby your crib costs, economically and with optimum structures. It records all movements and thereby guides you securely through the tool cycle in production. The module is an important basic function in the holistic Tool Lifecycle Management process. It records the inventories of tools and production equipment.

The Tool Crib Module also processes information on their condition and location. This combination creates a solid basis for planning the tools, orders, and machine occupation. The software supports ordering processes, controls and manages automated and manual crib systems, and ensures optimum crib inventory levels. The right tool in the right location thus becomes a reality.
