This paper provides supporting documentation for the development and implementation of a Tooling Data Collection System. The project replaced a primitive Microsoft Excel log sheet. The original workstation for the data acquisition was a standalone system with limited access to the corporate network information and engineering resources. The need for a system revision and upgrade escalated due to the increasing prices of raw materials for component stamping. Refining this process to minimize the scrap generated was the main objective of the Tooling Data Collection System. The intent was for the information to provide the engineers with a mechanism to reduce the scrap for raw material, chrome vanadium stainless steel (grade 304) in particular. The project objective was to devise a method to monitor the stamping activity for the component parts: blades, bolsters, center, catchbit, miscellaneous, scale, shield, spring, and tumbler. The project clearly demonstrates the need to adhere to a project management format. Using the rules and guidelines as presented in the PMBOK 3rd edition, for project development, implementation, and execution definitely would have enhanced the deployment process of this system.
