Units: number; or kg (SI), lb (Imperial); or m (SI), ft (Imperial). The tool life is a measure of the output which is possible before the tooling must be replaced. For batch processes it is measured in number of units, or in total mass of product; for continuous processes it is measured in total mass or length. When the production run exceeds the tool life, tooling must be replaced and the cost adjusted.
