The next topic in our tooling blog series addresses maintenance.
How will your supplier do the initial buy-off and ongoing maintenance of your tools?
Some things to consider:
If the time comes that you need to transfer your tooling to another supplier or bring them in-house, for whatever reason, you need to know that the tools have been well maintained. Usually, when tools are being moved, it’s for good reason, and there is not enough time or budget to rebuild or repair tooling that has been neglected. You also need to know that the tooling will last the entire life of your product cycle, and not need to be replaced prematurely due to poor maintenance.
