IT News Online – Fujitsu Launches Latest Version of its VPS Digital Production Preparation Tool

TOKYO, Jun 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 presents enhanced features, together with a function 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 resembling manufacturing prototyping and course of planning. Specifically, the brand new model contains an improved operate for visualizing machine structure and work procedures in a course of block diagram (3) in a simple-to-perceive 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 attainable to rapidly create a extremely correct 3D-BOP that may scale back manufacturing errors and the necessity to redo frequent duties. With this instrument, Fujitsu can deliver the true world of manufacturing nearer to the digital world, serving to to ship merchandise to market quicker and enhance general productiveness and high quality.

Fujitsu’s VPS providing will speed up DX within the manufacturing house 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 may even contribute to the achievement of the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) by bettering productiveness and high quality and creating improvements from a spread 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 difficulty. At manufacturing websites, DX is anticipated to hyperlink your complete 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 new methods of working at manufacturing websites. Simultaneously, it’s turning into more and more troublesome for producers to direct meeting operations, which have been carried out at abroad vegetation. 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 features 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 website

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

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

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

With the earlier variations of the VPS GP4 answer, which is used for inspecting 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 is going to be attainable to combine frequent work and work with totally different specs and specific them in a single knowledge. As a end result, when there’s a change in a typical 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 look at every process. Thus, it’s attainable to use cheap enchancment measures whereas 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 know-how firm with intensive know-how in manufacturing and superior applied sciences in achievement of its mission for its manufacturing model, COLMINA: “Bringing innovation to manufacturing by the supply of providers which are world, open, and fast that assist to appreciate DX”
