English term or phrase: Point tools
"Having a collection of point tools only allows you to solve different problems in isolation."

They are talking about a system that allows to solve different problems in an electronic system in an integrated fashion. This would not have been possible if you were using "point tools". What are they? Not-integrated tools?

English translation:Not-integrated tools for one part of a production process
Explanation:
Engineers use two key types of software tools: “point tools” and
“life-cycle” tools. CAD, CAE, and CAM are point tools because
they are applied to one part of the production process. PDM is a
life-cycle tool used to manage the flow of information throughout
the product development cycle and the manufacturing organization.
