Delete unused mfg-tool (ProTool)

Hello!

Is it possible to find out which tools in a MFG are not in use and delete them?

I think, I can visit the tools using ProMfgToolVisit.

But there is no function to delete the tool (ProTool).

Any ideas?

Thanks! Lars

Hi all,

Lars,

Manufacturing tool information is stored in multiple places. ProMfgToolVisit will find all tools defined ina mfg model. ProWcell feature holds tool information for the specific work cell. Using a combination of ProMfgToolVisit and ProWcellToolGet you could get a list of tools which are not in use...

I don't think or don't know ifit is possible via Toolkit to delete a tool from mfg model oncea toolwas created...

You canremove a tool record from the ProWcell featureby applying the usual ProElement functionality: ProFeatureElemtreeExtract -> ProElemtreeElementVisit -> ProFeatureRedefine...

HIH.

Feliks.
