Complexity in manufacturing is increasing – driven by the pressure to make production more cost-efficient, more flexible, and more sustainable. Recent industry trends have an unmistakable impact on part manufacturing. Such as, product complexity, higher diversity of variants, small lot sizes, and shorter delivery times. However, the actual situation for most shops is the lack of transparency and no data consistency (i.e. paper-based communication and lengthy setup times). Up to 30% of tool preparation time is used for finding the correct tool.
