FJGP4D automatically estimates production capacity from a process plan in order to obtain maximum performance.

  • Review of a new production line
  • Making improvements in advance

FJGP4D (semi-) automatically simulates the movements of persons and flows of materials.

  • Predicts productivity, work efficiency, and costs
  • Develops measures to prevent potential problems

FJGP4D key benefits

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.



Customer Benefits

  • Launch global mass production efficiently and reduce costs.
  • Plan without running actual trials. Calculate productivity quantitatively. Determine the best plan theoretically.
  • Realize "KAIZEN" and high productivity without stopping the current line.

FJGP4D to Improve Manufacturing Process Planning

  • FJGP4D develops multiple models for 3D line plans made during the planning stage.
  • The software can be used to assess layout designs, line balance, movement lines, and workability, as well as whether production indicators achieve target values- all without creating actual production lines.

FJGP4D case study



Company A

Challenge:

  • Due to rapid changes in production resulting from external causes, it was difficult to match operators' skill levels with work levels.

Effects:

  • Walking distance: Reduced 43%
  • Value of in-process items in stock: Reduced by 20-30%
  • Productivity: Increased 40%

Company B

Issue :

  • Use of the 2D tool-based process design does not allow enough time for an examination to be performed during the production preparation period.

Effects:

  • FJGP4D makes it possible to reduce the examination time by 50% and to increase the efficiency of the process design for the heavy load process.
  • By implementing KAIZEN activities before the start of mass production, the number of scheduled workers was able to be reduced by 50%.
