We are looking at a process to track tooling usage. More specifically, stencil usage on Screen Printer Machine. When the Machine goes through a Changeover, the Stencil is changed and scanned. There is a local log. We could read that log and call an API that would update the Tooling ID that was just scanned to In-Use and in the same time, update the Tooling ID that was used previously (also available in the log) to IDLE. This way, we can accurately track the Tooling count and change based on cycles.
Is there any API to do that ? (update Tooling Status)
Is there any other way to do it (other than manually changing it)?
