Tooling Resource

Tooling resources are used to record and capture tooling costs when manufacturing an item. The Tooling resources list contains all currently configured tooling resources setup in the system.

Beneath the tooling grid there are 3 buttons:

Add: Add a new tooling resource.

Edit: Edit the selected tooling resource.

Remove: Remove the selected tooling resource.

Note: This button is disabled if the tooling resource is in use anywhere in the system.

Adding/Editing Tooling Resources

The ‘Add/Edit Tooling Resource’ screens are identical and contain the following information:

Reference: The tooling reference. This is the reference used when entering a tooling resource onto an operation on a BOM, Quote, or Works Order. This field must be unique.

Description: The tooling description.

Quantity: The number of times the tool can be used before it needs to be replaced.

Unit Cost: The unit cost price.

Instructions: The default tooling resource instructions.
