Stiffener/Mold Design for Continually Changing Backpanel Layouts

      Disclosed is a multiple-insert tooling for plastic stiffener
design which allows for faster design change turn-around-time for
regions within the inserted area.

      For areas subject to frequent change within a defined outline,
sub-set tooling (i.e., inserts) are made within a base stiffener
tool.  As changes are made/needed, only the inserted area of the
stiffener tool needs to change (Figure).
