OREANDA-NEWS. Fujitsu Limited and Digital Process Ltd. today announced the immediate availability of FJVPS V15L14, the latest version of its FUJITSU Manufacturing Industry Solution FJVPS (Virtual Product Simulator from Fujitsu), a digital production preparation tool for customers in the assembly manufacturing industry that assists in considering product assembly processes using 3D models.

This product is used when considering the assembly process of a product. It simulates the use of assembly jigs(1) and other tools, and even the movement of assembly workers' hands, enabling confirmation that the product can be assembled without any problems. Moreover, because the jigs and other tools can be made to appear in the assembly procedure videos, more realistic and easy to understand videos can be made in a short period of time. In addition, to improve the video production process, the procedures for inputting data on each work step and for editing the assembly flow have been cut by roughly half compared to previous methods. This greatly contributes to improvements in the quality, cost, and delivery of production preparation work, such as design feedback on assembly work problems and the training of workers on complex assembly processes.

Through the batch creation function for product assembly process and batch assembly video generation functions, FJVPS has helped to make production preparation work more efficient. As the scope of assembly videos has expanded to encompass such areas as the overall assembly line and worker training, there has been a rising need for the ability to depict work in greater detail and refine the way FJVPS is used.

To meet these customer needs, Fujitsu and Digital Process are releasing FJVPS V15L14. By raising the quality of assembly procedure videos, it is designed to improve quality, cost, and delivery (QCD) for assembly work, while raising efficiency by greatly reducing the time it takes to make assembly videos. In addition, new features have been added that enable FJVPS data to be used even outside of FJVPS systems.
