The design of a flexible machining system (FMS) turning tool database and tool management system and of a robot tool management system for flexible assembly systems (FAS) is discussed. The design was based on common principles, resulting in a generic system architecture. Both turning tool and robot tool management system designs and sample database runs are illustrated to highlight common and diverse features and point out CIM specific design and implementation goals.
