Tool And Die Standardization – Development And Updating Of Standards
The standardization of parts has enabled large increases in productivity in manufacturing companies. Today
customers demand highly individualized products and without modular product architectures companies would not be able to
produce these products in high quantities and make a profit. The tool and die making industry also faces the challenge of highly
individualized products, which are only demanded in low quantities. Therefore the tool and die making industry needs an
approach to develop standards and update these standards, when they are not applicable anymore.
Key words- Standardization, Tool And Die Making, Updating Of Standards.
