TOOLING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
ACCELERATING MANUFACTURING PERFORMANCE
Tool and Gauge Management System
Having the right tool for the right task at the right time takes planning, forethought and a scalable quality management system capable of delivering optimal results.
Solumina’s Tool and Gauge Management system allow operators to track the physical location of a tool and the work center that last checked out a tool. The system can also generate reports verifying that all tools assigned to a work center are still at their last location and missing tools can be flagged for further investigation.
Tool Certification Tracking
Meet the most demanding quality management standards including ISO9001, AS9100 and ISO13485. These standards require organizations to track calibration statuses for measurement devices, and ensure that there are procedures in place to prevent using gauges with expired calibrations.
Seamless MES Integration
Solumina for Manufacturing Execution provides auditability and traceability of every tool, expiration rules, expiration dates, tool usage tracking and tool compliance history. This wealth of automated data replaces the need for manual, error-prone paper processes that slow down production performance.
Support for In-house Tooling
Tools, fixtures and templates built-in house that must stay in compliance with AS, ISO, DoD and a myriad of other compliance and quality management standards are supported. Solumina Tool and Gauge Management supports advanced functions including tool-manufacturing work orders and UID label reading and printing for manufactured tools.
Verify Tool Calibration
Solumina automatically verifies tool calibration before data collection measurements are recorded. This ensures that expired tools will never be used. Solumina meets the strict requirements for AS9102 regulatory compliance for First Article Inspection (FAI). This ensures that all engineering and design requirements are met before an item moves to the next manufacturing step, bridging the gap between as-designed and as-built.
Optimize Calibration Work Orders
Gain flexibility and agility by defining and executing template-calibration plans (work plans) for specific tools to create calibration-work orders optimized throughout the entire Solumina MES. Test results and certificates can also be electronically attached to the calibration records.
Automate work order operations to tool-kitting dispatch lists, while providing complete visibility to production personnel managing operations. Solumina’s Tool and Gauge Management can optimize the selection of tools assigned to mechanics and kitted along with parts or separately, depending on the requirements for each manufacturing site.
