Frequently Asked Questions


How does using the COAST Global Mold Management software reduce downtime and lower the cost of production?
COAST Global Mold Management software helps companies become proactive with their maintenance management as opposed to being reactive. This shift in operations optimizes planning, so the right work is performed at the right time with the right equipment. Our solution provides the visibility necessary to have the full financial picture of maintenance, refurbishment, and replacement, as well as the tools needed to assist with repairs, work orders, and condition-based monitoring to assist in determining priorities and making decisions that can improve your company’s efficiency. This improved efficiency leads to a lower cost of production and an improved bottom line.
Can COAST Global Mold Management software extend the life of my equipment?
Yes. By keeping accurate records of equipment and assets, our software automatically notifies you when routine maintenance is needed, when parts may need to be replaced, when equipment or assets such as molds need to be cleaned, and when warranties are about to expire. Our highly functional and powerful technology will ensure your equipment and assets operate as efficiently as possible while extending their life cycles.
How will I know if COAST Global Mold Management software is paying off?
We believe the real question should be, “can my company afford not to invest in asset management technology?”. The consequences of unplanned downtime due to emergency repairs or unscheduled maintenance can be devastating in terms of lost sales and profits. The key is to get out of a position where you are constantly fighting fires. This can be accomplished by shifting from a reactive approach to maintenance management to a proactive approach. COAST’s Global Management technology helps companies decrease their mean time to repair (MTTR) and increase their mean time between failures (MTBF). This results in improved overall equipment efficiency (OEE) as well as a reduction in overall spend.
Do I need a Global Mold Management System to get ISO certified?
ISO standards require that manufacturers use computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS) in place of manual systems which are prone to errors. Achieving ISO certification requires stringent documentation and recordkeeping to demonstrate compliance. COAST’s Global Mold Management software will modernize your maintenance management process, so you are fully prepared for ISO audits.
