Fujitsu Launches Latest Version Of Its VPS Digital Production Preparation Tool
Promoting DX by linking design and manufacturing, contributing to improved economic productivity and diverse working styles
Fujitsu announced the launch of a new version of the Fujitsu Manufacturing Industry Solution COLMINA Digital Production Preparation VPS (1), a series of tools developed by Digital Process Ltd. to support the digital transformation (DX) of production preparation tasks in manufacturing. Sales will commence for the Japanese market today, June 30, with availability in international regions at a later date.
The latest version offers enhanced functions, including a feature that allows users to create a 3D bill of process (3D-BOP) (2) that links 3D data to production process information for production preparation activities such as manufacturing prototyping and process planning. Specifically, the new version includes an improved function for visualizing machine layout and work procedures in a process block diagram (3) in an easy-to-understand manner illustrated with graphics and image inserts, as well as an enhanced function to centralize work data for parts with common specifications in manufacturing lines that handle products with multiple specifications. This makes it possible to quickly create a highly accurate 3D-BOP that can reduce manufacturing errors and the need to redo common tasks. With this tool, Fujitsu can bring the real world of manufacturing closer to the digital world, helping to deliver products to market faster and improve overall productivity and quality.
Fujitsu’s VPS offering will accelerate DX in the manufacturing space by linking digital data from design to manufacturing sites and supports working styles at manufacturing sites for the “new normal,” streamlining work processes and promoting the ability to manage operations remotely. Fujitsu will also contribute to the achievement of the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) by improving productivity and quality and creating innovations from a variety of perspectives.
