COLMINA FJGP4D


Digital Manufacturing FJGP4D


FUJITSU Digital Manufacturing Industry Solution FJGP4D is a powerful production support tool for visualizing process design. We support effective process design and various kinds of evaluation in the field of assembly and logistics.

In the manufacturing industry in recent years, great progress has been made in the area of production innovation prior to actual production, including virtual product design using 3D CAD, or simulations of assembly processes as opposed to relying on production prototypes. However, as workers are the key to raising productivity on a production line, it is difficult to perform verification in virtual environments, necessitating a resort to a process of trial-and-error on the production line in order to improve efficiency.

What is FJGP4D
What is COLMINA FJGP4D

FJGP4D enables us to see both the flow of the products and the traffic of the workers virtually, at the same time. 

Colmina FJGP4D is a Smart Factory Fujitsu software designed for customers in the manufacturing industry. With FJGP4D users at the production preparation stage can create a virtual production line and run simulations on factors including the most efficient movements or positions of production workers, the optimal alignment of workers in relation to the flow of a production line, and the time required to complete specific production tasks. As a result, in addition to enabling greater efficiency in assembly work on a production line from the standpoint of people, the product enables workers to benchmark their work against the simulation results and share their understanding of problem areas with co-workers, leading to improvements on the front lines of assembly plants.

FJGP4D realizes optimization and consensus building through process design and various verifications in virtual space using product CAD data, sequence data, and equipment data converted with FJGP4DSGS (the FJGP4D Manufacturing CAD data conversion application). It also assists efficient preparation for production through the utilization of the resulting output in preparation for production and mass production line development.

Production line optimization through simulations of the movements of production line workers

With Colmina FJGP4D, users are able to simulate the most efficient movements or positions of production workers, as well as the optimal alignment of workers, by configuring the basic movements of production workers (such as patterns of walking or patterns of hand or arm movements) in the designed virtual production line. The time required to complete specific production tasks can also be automatically calculated. Through mathematical modelling, evaluation, and analysis of the workers, end product, and machinery, FJGP4D will enable the realization of the optimal production line.

Evaluation and verification of assembly processes from the dual perspectives of end product and people when combined with Fujitsu's Colmina FJVPS

By using FJGP4D in conjunction with Fujitsu's virtual product simulator (FJVPS), a 3D virtual verification simulation tool for verifying product assembly processes, users are able to verify the optimization of assembly processes from the dual perspectives of both the end product and the workers on the assembly line.

User-friendly operation

Skill and training are required to effectively use CAD, but FJGP4 is very user-friendly enabling first-time users who have never used simulation software to employ it with ease.
Use of virtual equipment enables quick design of virtual line
Designs of the virtual production line used in the simulation can be completed quickly by using different types of virtual equipment templates built-in to the software.

How make data?

How make FJGP4D data?


GP4 requires CAD data. Once input CAD data into Process-BOM, GP4 forecast automatically worker behavior, posture and machine operation and show real-time 3D execution. GP4 also estimate process balance and specification of process plan into table list.

 
  • CAD data as virtual product
    • Major CAD data will be converted 
      • CATIA, Pro-engineer, SolidWorks, etc.
​​​
  • Original equipment library for factory
    • Over 500 library are provided from LEXER.
    • Parametric modification will makes them fit to customers original factory plan.
​​
  • Assembling order data
    • Import from EXCEL
    • Generate form product structure
    • Drag & drop operation in GP4

Four Applications of FJGP4D
  • GP4VMS
    • Reproduces a production site in the virtual space to consider requirements for production preparations in various edit modes.
  • GP4PES
    • Operates the production site defined in the virtual space to evaluate a daily volume and part supply timing.
  • GP4SGS
    • A tool to import VRML files exported from CAD, edit product part structures, and convert the format for GP4VMS.
  • GP4SES
    • A tool to modify size, angle, origin point, material, and texture of existing shapes, merge multiple shapes, and create simple geometric shapes.

Add-ins for GP4VMS
  • GP4RES
    • Displays the results of various simulations using GP4VMS as assessment values by process on the Evaluation Table. Also displays the Project Table to weigh up multiple plans of layouts and operation sequences.
  • GP4WFS
    • A tool to convert the existing operation instructions to GP4 format, and load operation sequence information into GP4VMS. After the loading, ideal time can be calculated from "operation time with incidental" to apply.
 
Two Add-ins for GP4VMS
  • General purpose element
    • Elements with 3D shapes used for GP4VMS: Standard shapes such as boxes, pillars, and spheres; Production equipment such as tools, shelves, logistics equipment; Factory equipment such as walls, shutters, cranes; General parts such as nuts and bolts.
  • Character element
    • Operator elements between 140cm and 190 cm in height. The posture value assessing work posture is set based on 3D strike zone definition.
