Define tools and groups of tools to be used in the production process.
Apart from machine that are used for production, there are also tools that are used and need to be set up. All tools that are used in production, are included in the activity set up.
Create toolset types to group toolsets with similar characteristics.
- Lifespan: number of years that the tool can be used
Define structural trees to be used in the application.
- Storage bin: warehouse location where the tool is stored
- Discarded checkbox: indication that the tool is no longer used. The field is entered manually and does not generate any transaction in the application.
- Utilization: when activities are entered, the associated toolsets are entered. This results in an automatic count of how many times the tools are used in production, based on validated work efforts.
Full list of Toolset window fields and their descriptions is available in the Toolset Screen Reference.
