Practice of GD.findi

image

We deliver "Tech Magazine" about the know-how for designing production system and practical technique for making simulation model with the use of GD.findi. Here, you can find the issues of "Tech Magazine" that we have delivered in the past. Please have a change to read it Japanese.
Regarding production system simulator, GD.findi, please refer to the below.

Tech Magazine

The 17th
Let's decide the number of in-house parts required!
Find the necessary number of in-house production by virtual production according to the in-house processing

Let's examine the task of predicting how many parts are needed to be manufactured internally through doing simulation with combining the process of manufacturing internal parts with the process of producing and doing simulation.

The 16th
Let's reduce inventory in-process!
Labor-saving of supply work and Definition of workorder

In this time, we introduce the method modifying the number of workers at supply-line to reduce the work-in-process inventory.

The 15th
Let's measure labor-saving by introducing automatic machines!
Examination on the number of workers considering material input by handwork

Merits acquired by the introduction of automatic machines are in making precisely and accurately and it is also expected to reduce the manpower in the future.
Let's take this opportunity to predict the labor-saving with the introduction of automatic machines by using GD.findi.

The 14th
Let's decide the production plan!
Formulation of production plan with consideration of equipment setup loss

This time of issue introduces the way to make a production schedule like as reducing the loss of procedure in the middle of deciding a production plan, not limiting the assignment of facilities.

The 13th
Let's decide working conditions!
What timing should we do with the multiple tasks?

This magazine introduces a method to find the best timing for handling multiprocess of works.

The 12th
Let's decide the responsibility of worker! (Part 2)
Waste of transport vs. Waste of waiting

We introduce a method of comparing a waste of transporting time decided by workers and a waste of working time in an easier way.
Let's use GD.findi to design a better manufacturing system with less waste.

The 11th
Examination of the number of facilities and equipment capacity
Increase facilities? Or reinforce facility capacity?

There is a question whether to newly purchase or expand facilities which are currently being used with the same capability, or purchase and install a device to improve the existing facility capacity. This affects not only the capacity of production system, but also largely influences from the purchase expense and the maintenance cost of facilities to the burden of workers. Let's utilize GD.findi to examine this.

The 10th
Layout design in consideration of trapnsport.
Decision of facilities' position in consideration of transport.

In this issue, we introduce a method of determining the position of facilities by paying attention to transport and by examining the influence on productivity.

The 9th
Examination of worker's allocation.
Let's decide the person in charge! Usage of Behavior ND.

In this time, we introduce one method of reducing the influence of loss due to the procedure.

The 7th
Let's express the loss!
How to use tooling activity.

This time is to express the "stop of facilities" and "loss". In the TPM (Total Productive Maintenance) among 16 factors which impede the efficiency of production activities, 7 losses which impede equipment efficiency are called seven losses, and it is listed as follows.

The 6th
Let's eliminate a bottleneck of transport!
Whether the conveyance point is a bottleneck or not?

In this issue, we will introduce two ways to eliminate this bottleneck by changing transport setting in the previous model.

The 5th
Let's set up the transport activity!
Whether the conveyance point is a bottleneck or not?

This time of theme is a "bottleneck verification of conveyance place."
At first, we introduce a method of inspecting whether the conveyance point becomes a bottleneck by setting transport.

The 4th
Let's find the necessary initial inventory quantities!
What is the amount of intermediate inventory seen in GD.findi?

In this time, we will answer about the question: "Are there too many intermediate inventory quantities for the difference in abilities between processes?", in other words, "How much the initial stock is needed" in order to make the process in full capacity.

The 3rd
Let's make an intermediate inventory model!
Create an inventory quantity model.

This issue of GD.findi's utilization technique is a continuation of "intermediate inventory quantity" in the previous issue. We introduce a method of creating a model to know the inventory quantity, as the continuation of GD.findi's utilization technique in the last issue.

The 2nd
Get to know the quantity of intermediate stock!
What is the quantity of intermediate inventory shown in GD.findi?

In GD.findi, you can easily find the quantity of intermediate inventory and its transition by simulation. This time, we introduce the functions of "initial stock" and "material flow" as an introduction to inventory observation.

The 1st
GD.findi is not just a simulation tool!
How to utilize the function of stacked anaysis?

In the design work of production system, there is something to do before simulation. In this article, we introduce GD.findi's "stacked analysis function" which is able to utilize for the investigation work before simulation.
