There are two concepts in the title that can be seen as “foreign” to the usual technical language. Both can have several meanings and thus we adapted them “flexibly” to the current needs. One way to understand the term “management” is through its functions: planning (defining purpose and means), organizing (defining tasks and methods), and direction (guidance, controlling), inspection (testing, comparing). It can also mean among other things, standpoint, circumstance, respect, or even character. Regarding the expression “damage management” the intended meaning here is reducing or to preventing damage to the tool, also improving the resistance of the tool material to damage, which besides material selection issues also has design, technology and operational aspects. This article gives an overview of some of these.
