Fujitsu Launches Latest Version of its VPS Digital Production Preparation Tool

Promoting DX by linking design and manufacturing, contributing to improved financial productiveness and numerous working types

News Facts:
– Fujitsu Manufacturing Industry Solution COLMINA Digital Production Preparation VPS enhanced with new 3D BOP (Bill of Process) creation operate, visualizing manufacturing processes to help customers, scale back errors in manufacturing, and centralizing knowledge of frequent duties to reduce the necessity to redo duties.
– Supporting adoption of new working types within the “new regular” period by bringing in regards to the convergence of actual world manufacturing and digital world whereas contributing to improved productiveness, high quality, and quicker supply of new merchandise to market.

TOKYO, June 30, 2021 – (JCN Newswire) – Fujitsu immediately introduced the launch of a brand new model of the Fujitsu Manufacturing Industry Solution COLMINA Digital Production Preparation VPS (1), a collection of instruments developed by Digital Process Ltd. to help the digital transformation (DX) of manufacturing preparation duties in manufacturing. Sales will begin for the Japanese market immediately, June 30, with availability in worldwide areas at a later date.

The newest model affords enhanced capabilities, together with a characteristic that permits customers to create a 3D invoice of course of (3D-BOP) (2) that hyperlinks 3D knowledge to manufacturing course of data for manufacturing preparation actions reminiscent of manufacturing prototyping and course of planning. Specifically, the brand new model contains an improved operate for visualizing machine format and work procedures in a course of block diagram (3) in an easy-to-understand method illustrated with graphics and picture inserts, in addition to an enhanced operate to centralize work knowledge for elements with frequent specs in manufacturing strains that deal with merchandise with a number of specs. This makes it potential to rapidly create a extremely correct 3D-BOP that may scale back manufacturing errors and the necessity to redo frequent duties. With this software, Fujitsu can carry the true world of manufacturing nearer to the digital world, serving to to ship merchandise to market quicker and enhance total productiveness and high quality.

Fujitsu’s VPS providing will speed up DX within the manufacturing area by linking digital knowledge from design to manufacturing websites and helps working types at manufacturing websites for the “new regular,” streamlining work processes and selling the power to handle operations remotely. Fujitsu will even contribute to the achievement of the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) by bettering productiveness and high quality and creating improvements from a range of views.


The SDGs Action Plan 2021 (4) introduced by the Japanese authorities in December 2020, identifies the promotion of digital transformation, and institution of a system the place everybody can profit from digitization, and work to determine and speed up the ‘new regular’ as a precedence subject. At manufacturing websites, DX is predicted to hyperlink the whole course of from design to manufacturing with digital knowledge, and to enhance effectivity and productiveness by centralizing knowledge, contributing to the achievement of this goal.

In the manufacturing business, COVID-19 is inflicting demand for brand spanking new methods of working at manufacturing websites. Simultaneously, it’s turning into more and more tough for producers to direct meeting operations, which have been carried out at abroad crops. These components have led to a rising demand for 3D-BOP options that may successfully visualize manufacturing websites.

To deal with this want, Fujitsu has launched a brand new model of its VPS with enhanced capabilities for making a visually interesting 3D-BOPs and streamlining operations on manufacturing strains.

Features of the New Version

1. VPS Standard and VPS Manufacturing, 3D-BOP creation instruments that extra faithfully signify the manufacturing web site

VPS Standard and VPS Manufacturing are 3D-BOP creation instruments for reviewing the manufacturing course of with 3D knowledge. With earlier variations of this resolution, course of process have been represented by course of names and elements photographs that may be assembled in processes, however they have been inadequate for intuitive understanding of course of format, work procedures, and method of assembling.

The new model allows the creation of a extra visible 3D-BOP resolution that’s appropriate for the manufacturing web site by means of graphics and insert photographs to point the association of machines, employee move strains, and work procedures on the method block diagram, displaying instruments on snapshots and course of photographs (5), and simply creating shapes reminiscent of weld shapes, auxiliary supplies, and jigs and instruments. This reduces operational errors reminiscent of misuse of jigs and meeting work order, leading to greater yield manufacturing.

2. VPS GP4, a producing line course of planning software that improves work effectivity by centralizing knowledge

With the earlier variations of the VPS GP4 resolution, which is used for analyzing the method plan of a producing line with 3D knowledge, it was essential to create and edit design knowledge on a person foundation, together with for shared duties. With this enhancement, it will likely be potential to combine frequent work and work with totally different specs and specific them in a single knowledge. As a outcome, when there’s a change in a standard operation, just one set of knowledge must be corrected. This can scale back the operation time by as much as about 70% (6). Moreover, since a number of operational procedures are represented by one set of knowledge, it’s simpler to check and study every process. Thus, it’s potential to use cheap enchancment measures whereas taking a look at analysis values of manufacturing strains.

Future Plans

Going ahead, Fujitsu will proceed to help Digital Transformation (DX) within the manufacturing business, leveraging its capabilities as a number one expertise firm with in depth know-how in manufacturing and superior applied sciences in achievement of its mission for its manufacturing model, COLMINA: “Bringing innovation to manufacturing by way of the supply of providers which are world, open, and fast that assist to comprehend DX”
