Abstract: With the rapid development of manufacturing industry, there is an increasing need for different industries to communicate, exchange and share information. While, the diversity of terms being used among different organizations makes the communication hard to proceed. Due to this reason, Sandvik Coromant decided to initiate development of a new international standard ISO 13399 under the title Cutting tool data representation and exchange. The standardis developed by Sandvik Coromant, KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, French Cetim (technical centre for mechanical engineers) and other organizations in the metal cutting sector. (Sandvik Coromant)ISO 13399 has been developed for years, and it has reached a stage to be tested and verified. In 2014, Sandvik starts a new project of developing an application called ISO ToolMaker for verifying and validating the development and implementation specification of ISO 13399. By2016, the framework of this application has been set up. Since the software development is still at the primary stage, there are plenty of issues need to be settled afterwards. Therefore, the purpose of this thesis is to promote the reform of ISO ToolMaker, adjusting existing undesired functions, adding new modules for advanced usage, and reorganize the software structure for continuous improvement. By conducting the literature research and interviewing the staff in Sandvik Coromant, an action plan was made, and a systematic method was applied to guide the procedures. Compare to the previous application, the final version has three significant advantages ‐ an extra store function for items and assemblies, a more rigorous logical connection and a one‐click output mode and, in addition, the text‐info for guiding each step and the detail design of the software. All the aspects make it a superior and user‐friendly application to work with.
