How do I know whether my company needs a global mold asset management program?

The integrity and reliability of physical assets plays a key role in helping companies compete in today’s fast-paced and competitive environment. The best organizations view asset management as a critical step to ensuring long-term success. And they are continuously seeking ways to keep pace with supply and demand while mitigating risk and minimizing costs. Think you’ve got things under control? Ask yourself these five important questions:

1. How many assets does your company have and what is their total value?

2. Do you know where all your assets are located?

3. What is the condition of each asset?

4. What is the cost to maintain the assets?

5. When should the assets be replaced?

COAST is here to make sure you can answer all of these questions at any moment – even if your company’s assets are stored at multiple locations. We are uniquely positioned to help medium and large enterprise-level companies transform the way they manage and maintain their global assets to assure greater business continuity.

Tooling Asset and Life Cycle Management
COAST can help your company develop and implement standardized maintenance management processes with complete data management that is fully supported by our CMMS technology platform. This includes everything from asset utilization and history to work orders and current condition.
Supplier Onboarding and Management
COAST maintains relationships with tooling manufacturers around the globe who we evaluate based on the quality of their work, production capacity, transparency, and pricing models. In many regions, we are able to negotiate volume discounts based on the high volume of work we procure.
Procurement and Financial Management
COAST understands procurement exceptionally well and can manage the entire process from beginning to end. We obtain quotes that make the most sense from a work prioritization standpoint, initiate purchase orders, write capital request forms, and perform accurate budget forecasting based on the history, condition, and utilization of tools. Having one reliable source for procurement not only speeds the process but saves companies money by requiring fewer employees.
Mold Qualification and Validation
As plastic manufacturing experts, we can help you achieve the best molding processes while adhering to stringent qualification requirements for material testing, color testing, packaging requirements, in-process inspection, first article inspection, and more. Our highly-trained plastics engineering specialists can assist with analytical troubleshooting (ATS) while ensuring that your final product performs by using standardized process capability (Cp, CpK) and process performance (Pk, PpK) reporting methodologies.
Tooling Condition and Health Management
Whether at your location or at a third-party site, our team will physically inspect each asset and its corresponding parts. The assets are given a “grade” on a predetermined scale and their condition is entered into our software, along with specific recommendations that include everything from cleaning, sanding and welding to parts replacement. Using our software, users can initiate work orders, schedule maintenance activities, and watch the overall condition rating of their tools improve significantly. This results in a lower cost of ownership of your tools and a lower manufactured product cost since more cycles means more output.
Mold Replacement
From refurbishing to total replacement, we have resources in place to ensure molds are returned to like-new condition. Often times we can save companies the unnecessary expense of third-party markups on tools sent away for repair.
Spare Parts Inventory
Without a backup plan, tool failure can be catastrophic for time-sensitive products that are ordered as needed. COAST can help develop a streamlined process that will help your company avoid embarrassing or costly delays in the supply chain.
Staff Augmentation
From project management, mold and tooling program management, and package engineering to converter selection, process development and more, COAST provides onsite support as needed.
Mold Decommissioning
Retiring assets requires proper documentation and disposal. Let COAST reduce patent risk exposure and keep you in compliance by creating a standardized process that includes photo validation.
