Ease Releases Tool Management Module

MISSION VIEJO, CA – July 6, 2012 – As part of a continued effort to offer state of the art software products to their customers, EASE, Inc. has announced the release of their latest software module for Tool Management. Tool Management will complement the already powerful manufacturing productivity software products that include: Engineered Labor Standards, Line Balancing, Work Instructions, Manufacturing Document Management, Manufacturing Change Control, Layered Process Audits and On-line ViewEASE.

John Smith, Founder and Chief Technologist of Ease Inc. said, “Control of tooling data and its visibility across multiple departments and functions are not mutually exclusive and are critical in many manufacturing companies. Our goal was to develop software to allow Tool Engineers, ME’s, Quality and Operations to easily and accurately share tooling information.”

Tool Management is a complex endeavor that can greatly impact manufacturing efficiency and quality. Unfortunately, most orga­nizations do not share tool-related information across departments or operational areas. As a result, operators and engineering person­nel spend valuable time searching for up-to-date information and locating criti­cal tool data. Using a database driven approach to managing tool information, EASEworks controls and indexes all tool information to simplify the process of sharing tool information and delivering it to the right person at the right time – regardless of tool type.

Michael Linos, CEO and President of EASE, Inc. said, “We are very excited to offer the latest module in a long line of very successful manufacturing productivity tools from EASE. The EASE Tool Management module manages all tool types throughout the enterprise regardless of location or process. EASEworks Tool Management provides streamlined, integrated and relevant data about tool usage, maintenance, and specifications.”
