In the summer of 2010, JoRe Werkzeugbau GmbH extended its production data acquisition. With the help of a system developed in-house, all relevant company and project data can be centrally gathered, stored, processed and eventually put at the corresponding responsible person’s disposal. Above all, the project management could be optimized with this system. In tool making, it is of utmost importance that all project phases are documented and that they can be reproduced in the event of later improvements or with a new assignment. Transparency and communication are the two essential features which determine a successful co-operation and project implementation. Both JoRe Werkzeugbau GmbH and the customer benefit from this. All processes are supported by automated systems – from the planning, via the design and the production through to the completion of the job on the customer’s premises, as well as the aftercare operations and the maintenance. The exact and prompt gathering of all project data allows precise statements about the current project progress and respective adjustments to the project plan. As the software solution is continually enhanced, it is thus optimally tailored to JoRe Werkzeugbau GmbH’s and its customers’ requirements. For example, we are currently working on making exact capacities and availability visible at any time and just at the touch of a button and on entering milling and eroding work into the data base with positional accuracy.
