To control / operate its TM 326, TM 426 and TM 526 dispensing systems Guhring has developed the Tool Management Software GTMS. The objective is to organise the complete tool supply as cost-efficient as possible.
With the comprehensive possibilities of GTMS concrete saving potential can be made visible. Guhring’s Tool Management Software enables a permanent consumption control: Reporting all tool movement data makes tool costs more transparent. This is achieved by the specific allocation of tool costs to cost groups such as cost centres for example. An ABC analysis of the tools can shed further light on the tool management.
GTMS automatically triggers order requirements when necessary. A notification is sent to the employee responsible, to the purchasing department or controlling if there is shortfall of the pre- defined stock item or an automatic order is sent to the supplier. A tool shortage situation is hereby prevented. In addition, wear data can be automatically recorded, goods inwards monitored or orders managed. Accurate consumption analysis for different criteria, as for example, tool consumption per component, per machine or per production area contribute to a sustainable tool management like supplier assessment and monitoring deadlines.
With the assistance of GTMS and the newly designed TM dispensing systems stock levels and withdrawals are seamlessly documented.
