・Details

■ Additional functions

  • Addition of function of registration to parts master

    If you add the information of input parts or output parts to the work process, those information will register to the parts master of inside of GD.findi.

    Because of this function, when you set down the product which you entered once, parts name will be automatically changed .

    Parts master itself will change when you parts change ID and parts name which are already existed.

    Therefore, please be careful of that parts name of same ID included in all work processes will be changed in a lump by the operation.

    In addition, when you change the parts ID and parts name to the work process, enter the information after deleting the input line.

    ■ Specification change

  • When the stock is at the station which is not registerd to the production plannning,work process is executed.

    ■ Bug fix

  • Work time of station actibity is fixed.

Updated on July 3, 2014

・Details

■ Additional function

  • Add the function to change displayed color of each work element and interconnect line between work element.
  • Add the function to highlight work element on your mouse over on the station that associated to its element.
  • Add the function to support production line balance analysis.
    There is detail explanation for use.

〜 Production line balance analysis 〜

  1. Added the useful tool for production process planning.
    You can use it from tool menu which is located right top of GD.findi home page.
  2. GD.findi_login

  3. Click tool menu and tool list will be activated as a pull-down menu.
  4. GD.findi_tool_menu

  5. Check the target tool to use and tool panel that you chose will be displayed.
  6. GD.findi_tool_menu_display

  7. There are some explanation of each tool.
  8. ・Product list and panel.

    Select products from the list of products to register on production line balance analysis.

    GD.findi_productlist

    ・Production process workload chart panel.

    You can see workload chart regarding to the product you selected. You selected(not check box, click the name of product) from production selection panel will be displayed. Vertical line means work time and work elements are placed in horizontal.

    If move cursorpf your mouse over the cell as work element on production process workload chart panel, the work element on production process pane will be highlighted. Also, name of work element and work time are displayed near the cursor.

    GD.findiprocess_yamadumi

    ・Floor plan workload chart panel

    Workload chart associated with station is displayed.On this chart, products that are checked on product lists are displayed. If you select several products, work time cell of each products are shown piled up as a percentage. On the other hand, if you select one, vertical axis shows time. Horizontal axis shows station on floor plan.

    Cell of same color in workload chart shows same product.Also, color of work time cell on the workload chart and product name on product selection panel are displayed same color. If you move the cursor over the workload chart of floor plan, the station and work time are highlighted on floor plan pane. Products name, staton name, work element name , and rate of work time are displayed near the cursor.

    GD.findi_floorplan_yamadumi

  9. More information of floor plan workload chart.
  10. There is an example about floor plan workload chart.Each axis of workload chart shows as noted below.
    ・Horizontal axis: station
    ・Vertical axis: percentage of summation of ( work time× production quantity)
    e.g.

    Product A: production quantity(10)

    Product B: production quantity(20)


    ・Work elements of productionA :2

    Work time of work element A-1:30(sec)

    Work time of work element A-2:40(sec)


    ・Work elements of production.

    Work time of work element B-1:20(sec)

    Work time of work element B-2:10(sec)


    ・Floor plan:2 stiation

    Station 1 has work element A-1 and work element B-1

    Station 2 has work element A-2 and work element B-2


    Work time of each station

    Work time of station1=30×10+20×20=700

    Work time of station2=40×10+10×20=600


    Therefore,a percentage of stations on the floor plan is

    A percentage of work time of station1=700/700×100=100

    A percentage of work time of station2=600/700×100=85.7
    On production line balance analysis,percentage of this calculating formulai is displayed as a vertical axis.


■ Specification change

  • Changed expression "cycle time" to "work time" on production order setting panel.
  • Changed expression ‘cycle time’ to ‘work time’ of station activity setting panel.
  • You can enter only singe byte texts in ‘input part ID’ on work element panel.
  • You can enter only singe byte texts in ‘output part ID’ on work element panel.
  • You can select only 2 kinds of station type which are WORKSTATION and STATION-SET.
  • Regarding to setting production process, ‘parts name’ or ‘parts ID’ required to be the same description as product name.
  • Default setting of behavior of station activity is changed to be equal for responsible stations in terms of the rate of operation.
  • When you don’t set anything for behavior, activity selects the one to be equal for responsible stations in terms of the rate of operation.


    Station activity takes the station having maximum value which is followed as below.

    (current quantity in stock) × {(work time) ÷ (number of input parts of work element)}

    =(current quantity in stock) × (processing time of each product)


    In other words, changed station behavior specification to select the station having maximum time to execute all of stock.

    As a result,finishing time of work of each station will be leveling.

■ Bug fix

  • Bug that condition of station activity is not reflected is corrected.
