Anyone who has ever dealt with the subject of workshop organization in joinery, carpentry or a furniture production knows the problem fields:
We soon realize that this problem can hardly be solved without clever resource and tool management because the complexity in the workshop and customer projects is increasing rapidly. The variety of materials is growing due to individual customer requirements, and, additionally, the scope of the tools required is rising.
From practical experience, the tapio team addressed the topic of digital tool and material management to simplify and optimize workshop organization. This has resulted in twinio - the mobile, digital twin of tools and materials for material and tool management.
With twinio, you can use the Internet browser on your PC, tablet, and smartphone to manage your tools, such as CNC tools, circular saw blades, milling cutters, but also to manage materials, such as edge bands, digitally and on the move with just a few clicks.
When we consider how much time is spent on this in work preparation and production and all too often wasted on finding the right materials and tools, it quickly becomes clear that clever material and tool management solves real issues in carpentries.
For example, take a look at what happens in your workshop when the material is delivered. How often are outdated lists maintained? Quite often nothing is noted or documented at all. The production employees are then at a disadvantage when the material is sought or even determined that it must be reordered before production can continue. And last but not least, the motivation of the person who is now ordered to clean up the chaos of materials in the workshop warehouse is diminishing.
Let's take a look at the management of edge band material as an example.
If a new job is planned in the job preparation department, a glance in twinio on the PC or smartphone is enough to determine how many meters of the remaining length of the special edge and are in stock. This means that only the missing quantity needs to be ordered from the supplier.
When this is delivered, the edge can be provided with a QR code with just a few clicks, which is stuck onto the edge. At the same time, a storage location for this special edging can be stored at goods receipt, as well as other individual details. At this point, for example, the commission name or number for the special project could be added. It will be even easier and faster if integrated tapio partners provide their data. Then a quick scan is enough and the corresponding material or tool is created rapidly.
If the machine operator needs this special edge, he simply searches for a suitable parameter in twinio and immediately receives information on where the edgebandings are located and how many meters the rolls provide. The machine operator can then quickly load the edge band on the machine and start producing. This project also leaves a small amount of residual edge. The machine operator again selects the respective edge band, notes the quantity used, and the storage location. That’s it.
In this way, the workshop organization is done with just a few clicks. Everyone benefits from the increased transparency: the work preparation department can now see exactly which material is still in stock before placing unnecessary new orders and the production department immediately knows where to find which material and does not have to search for a long time. Last but not least, twinio helps to keep the warehouse and the workshop in good order - this saves tedious tidying up and unnecessary costs.
It is best to select a test area in your workshop, such as saw blades that come to the sharpening service, your CNC tool, or circular saw blades in general. Then register for a twinio test version for 30 days. To do so, register your company and create individual users on tapio. Then select the free twinio test license.
Now you can start directly and create up to 30 tools digitally. Include some of your colleagues in the test phase to see how you can improve your workshop organization. The mobile app for tool management and material management will immediately show all information for your team: as a web app in the browser, mobile on the smartphone, laptop, or stationary PC.
Once you have started with a subarea in your workshop, such as CNC tools, you discuss the improvements and changes with the team. In the next step, you then expand the clever tool management with twinio to include other materials and tools, such as circular saw blades or edge bands.
In this way, you can test in small steps and without a large initial investment how twinio can improve your material management and tool management digitally and mobile, quickly and easily. It could be the first step for your digital tool management as well as possible future changes towards digital production.
