Hello Garth, We have used Maximo to record and manage our airtool usage for several years. our first step was to set up all the airtools as assets, and then to put an RFID tag on all the assets so that booking the tools in and out became fast and accurate. We then recorded any tool issue or failure with a workorder to give us breakdown history and repair cost. We then set up PM's on these assets to fall due in line with servicing guidelines. I am sure there are many other ways of achieving a similar business benefit, but this is the one that worked for us.

Just an add-on to Phil's response.
I would set the tools as "rotating" assets if they are to undergo calibration. I did this in a nuclear facility previously for their many thousands of personal dose meters which needed annual calibration. As with Phil, I set up a recall PM record and then calibrated the devices, tracking them as unique objects and recording the calibration certs against the asset record. A complete calibration history was then available.
I assume you are using Maximo calibration, and that the hand tool calibration can be recorded in Maximo directly, although there are several Mobile solutions such as Anywhere and Fingertip which allow reading of Rfid and recording of the calibration results directly into a handheld device.
