Tool & Gauge ERP Module

GLOVIA G2’s Tool & Gauge ERP module application enables manufacturers to manage all functions pertaining to tool and gauge inventory, tracking and calibration.

Fully Integrated

The Tool & Gauge ERP module is an integral part of the GLOVIA G2 ERP solution. It is a fully integrated supporting application to Work Orders and Repetitive Manufacturing that provides for the control and movement tracking of all types of tools and gauges used in the manufacturing process. The system manages reservations, assignments, tool and gauge calibration requirements, reworks, purchases and costing.

Tools defined in this solution, used in conjunction with GLOVIA G2 Factory Planning, may be used as constraints in the planning process.

Tooling data includes usage costs, dimensional information, calibration information and quality assurance cycles. Tools may be durable or consumable and may have a bill of material. When attached to a routing step, either for a work order or a repetitive schedule, tools are seen as demand by the system. Tools can be kitted, issued and returned to inventory.

Tools that have passed their calibration counters – which may be defined by issues, days or actual usage – cannot be issued and must be processed by standard GLOVIA G2 Material Review Board (MRB) functionality. This includes inspection, rework, return to vendor, use-as-is, scrap, etc.

Specific tool inspection routines are available, which allow the operator to record dimensional changes and to view historical data during the inspection process. Tool costs are added to the work order or repetitive schedule. Costs of tools returned, perhaps after failure, can be left in the job or removed from it.

A comprehensive set of inquiries and reports allow the user to monitor tool usage, issues, history, current demand, calibration, etc., to see what tools are in use at anyplace or time.
