VPS

VPS is packaged software that uses a product's 3D data created in CAD to provide cohesive support for the varied work processes of assembly production planning, from product review to manufacturing instructions. There is a growing need to use 3D data in a cohesive set of tools that cover design analysis, production-line layout, and process simulations, even for massive-scale manufacturing projects, such as complete trains and aircraft.

VPS is a software package that covers the entire process of production preparation, using 3D model data of products created in CAD tools for product reviews, process reviews when assembling products, production line layout reviews, and creating documents used in manufacturing, in order to support the smooth start-up of mass production.

Production preparation for mass production is often close to be late for the delivery deadline because of a delay of the previous process. VPS enables the manufacturing division to review a product in an early stage of the design process, so that the division is able to communicate earlier to the design division about possible failures during assembly or improvement requirements. This efficient communication flow promotes product development for which the factory circumstance or manufacturability is sufficiently considered.

VPS enables you to easily verify the complex mechanism of a product during the design process. VPS ensures simple mechanism setting using a wizard form and provides comfortable manipulation even for the model with large data by using its own lightweight system.
Customer Benefits
FJVPS realizes, improvement of quality and production time of the early period of mass production as well as early improvement with design quality. The simple operation that even a CAD inexperienced person is usable.
Q: Quality improvement
  • 50-80% of the design error was detected on a virtual prototype beforehand.
  • The remaining defect item concerning assembly vanished before it approved.
  • The drawing change rate after approval became 1/6.
  • Defective assembly was able to be reduced to 1/5 in 1.5 years.
  • The assembly trouble 80% reduction that was the initial goal was achieved in four years.
C: Productivity enhancement and cost reduction
  • The start-up period of the prototype was able to be adjusted to 1/15.
  • The development period was shortened to six months, and the development cost was reduced to 1/2.
  • FJVPS harness option was used, and the design period was able to be moved up for one month.
D: Shortening at lead time and period
  • The man-hour of making the work procedure manual has been reduced by 30-40%.
  • Communication between design and other business segment have been improved.
  • Suggestions for improvement(ex. Mechanism operation, assembly, and check of serviceability) became possible without a real machine.
  • The metal mold correction cost was reduced by half by the front-loading by FJVPS.
FJVPS case study
Shimadzu Corporation (analytical & measuring instruments)
  1. The start of production duties was hastened by a design revue using FJVPS. Rework and frequency of trial productions of actual equipment were decreased.
  2. Man-hours required for document preparation were cut in half. assembly procedure sheets, parts lists, service manuals, instruction manuals, etc. Man-hours required for the illustrations of harnesses and cables has been reduced by 10%.
  3. Product information data sharing with the FJVPS server. Work efficiency, consistency and maintainability are improved.
AMADA (Metalworking machinery and devices)
Reduction of indirect operations, logistic cost, and improvement of maintenance serviceability have been achieved in addition to a 50% reduction of the product development period.
  1. Promoting front loading, and aiming at reduction of development period & cost reduction.It was possible to shorten the period from development to release on the market to 11 months, which had conventionally required about 2 years.
  2. A study/review for grouping and routing of wiring, hoses, etc. by utilizing FJVPS is executed from the planning stage.The development man-hour and time related to wiring and piping were reduced by 40%.
  3. FJVPS has also been utilized for the study/review on optimization of efficient loading methods on trucks as well as containers for overseas transportation. The success of such efforts has brought about a 19% reduction in logistic expense and a 30% reduction in the logistic delivery period.
Jatco (Automatic transmission for automobiles)
  1. Challenges in reducing lead time before starting mass production.Jatco has undertaken formulation of the environment for utilizing 3D data where the functions of products, component characteristics and names, relationship with preceding & post processes about components to be assembled in charge, and precautions for safety can be learnt virtually
  2. Work proficiency before formulation of a mass-production line is realized using the animation function of FJVPS. 
    - The staff in charge of the production site can routinely make full use of DMU, and feedback knowledge of the site into the animation for work proficiency by themselves. 
    - The variability of the teacher side was also reduced on a global scale on certain projects, and as a result, the man-hours on the student side after proficiency was also reduced by nearly 40%.
