Tool Lifecycle Management
TDM-TLM - IT-Strategy for Tool Management

Each tool ensures productivity
TDM Systems is the pioneer of tool data management. For more than 25 years, we have offered solutions for the questions: Which tool is at which location at a specific time? What are the crib inventories? Which tools have to be prepared for which order? Which tools do we use for this machining operation? Are there alterna-tives? We support your production with our software and expertise. With TDM, a machining tool becomes a valuable pro- ductivity factor, which ensures increased profits and optimized processes.

New generation of tool data management
Tool Lifecycle Management is the IT strategy for production resources and includes tool organization in all phases of planning, simulation, order preparation and production. In doing so, TLM is a link between ERP, PLM, and MES and ensures communication between planning and production systems. On one hand, TLM is about capturing and providing tool data and tool graphics in CAM and simulation processes; on the other hand, it is about the physical organization of tool circulation on the shopfloor. TLM is not oriented towards individual departments and single processes, rather it consists of continuous communication and data exchange between the involved systems.
