    Tool Crib Management Software?

    Awesome feed back guys. I have been building tool libraries for all of my assembly's. And we/programmers provide and control the info for the crib attendant to build assembly's. That part is working fine. The biggest problem I have is knowing what we have on hand, and equally important knowing when to replenish certain tools. I really need an inventory system that I can use as a reference when deciding on tools, it would be nice if it would keep track of lead times too so we know when to reorder some custom tools and such. We are now starting to kart jobs that are reoccurring to cut down on set up times, But the last big job I programmed alot of money was spent on tooling and 3 weeks later as we re-organized our crib, I found multiple tools that I had just purchased already in stock. This was an OH S#&! moment for me because I just hate wasting money that could be used for other things that can make my life better like probes, new computers, etc... I guess ultimately I'm looking for something really easy to use, but functional for all the above mentioned objectives. Spending a fortune for something complicated is less likely to catch on around here. If its easy they will use it... If they use it, it will help immensely..

    Tool Crib Management Software?

    Anybody got any experience or suggestions? Our old crib man just retired and while he knew every tool in the place his only system was, well he knew every tool in the place. We hired a pretty green kid to take over and we need to give him a direction to go in to make our lives easier and save some money. Its amazing to me how many tools we buy without really knowing what we already have. From a programmers stand point we have a decent selection of standard tools in stock that I know I can program to but, I still would love to be able to know what we have be it on other jobs or just sitting around before I commit to ordering tools. Also knowing when to reorder is huge. I feel like the money we spend can be some what reduced or atleast redirected into other areas of the shop... Not really interested in a vending machine or locking drawers, we have a guy to go through, just need a way for him to manage it all...
  6. try syncing the entities. look in the options when you chain manager pops up.

    Mastercam to Vericut help

    you have to set up the Work offsets in Vericut. a CYS (I think thats what its called) and a Work offset that relates to that CYS. Its kinda hard for me to explain, but if I can grab some screen shots tomorrow I will. Also if you will have to move the CYS from where top top top is to where ever your new WCS is.... Colin has some videos on Eappentace that are probably gonna be 5 million times more helpful to you.. Just saying
