    new production lines and production plants with the software The production consists of more than 200 process stages In assembly a change in product mix has a rapid impact on the capacity needs Monitoring work cycle times alone is not enough because only one factor can be displayed at a time The Delfoi software takes into consideration the need of different products to use the same machinery and equipment even though they have different Run Rate tables This renders it possible to maximize the utilization rate of the production capacity Murata Electronics s production develoment manager Sami Solastie states Sales and production are planned for a continuous 12 month time span In addition to controlling through capacity management in which country and on which production line sensors are being produced different kinds of scenarios can be created and the impact of single products or product families on the overall production and capacity need can be studied As for new products product specific investment calculations are perfomed Questions such as these are best answered by Delfoi Planner Sami Solastie continues Prior to Delfoi Planner the calculations were performed using Excel One of the drawbacks of Excel is its unmanageability The tables are being created in the course of years and they are not necessarily designed to meet the needs of the coming years And when for example five years are represented in the form of an Excel table on a weekly basis the mere physical size of the table is enormous Another drawback of Excel is that whenever a change is made to the table you cannot be sure what kind of an effect it will have on the values and formulas elsewhere in the table Besides insertion of time and ease of use the Delfoi Planner solution offers many other advantages over Excel In a rapidly growing company it is of great importance to produce certain kind of data Delfoi Planner accustoms its users to uniform processes and everyone knows what the calculations are based on The reports provided by the system facilitate development processes greatly Moreover the capacity calculations performed using Delfoi are more reliable than those performed using Excel because the data is uniform and comes from a single system Sami Solastie compares It is recommended to carry out capacity calculations and production development processes in a centralized manner Both Murata Electronics and its customers have only a few selected employees who manage and maintain production related data The calculations and data can be handled only by persons who have a profound understanding of the logic behind it Expert Services and support Delfoi has been a very good partner and our cooperation has been highly flexible Support has always been available when it has been needed The expertise of Delfoi was a great help in defining the project and in pinning down the requirements The Delfoi Planner software has been updated regularly During the latest update session the usability of the reporting tools was developed It has been

  • Case Arctech
    development arose from the goals of operational development and the new operational profile of the Helsinki shipyard Consequently a larger share of the work carried out at the shipyard nowadays focuses on the post block production stages as the grand blocks and floating hulls arrive in Helsinki ready made from other shipyards In the initial situation Arctech made use of the crystal ball tool which enabled the quick modelling of alternative sales scenarios The goal was to develop the tool in a way that enabled taking the restrictions of the shipyard production and design more easily into account in the scenarios In terms of delivery capacity it is very important to have a model available that is accurate enough and also takes capacity and other essential restrictions into account when planning schedules According to Petri Nousiainen Director for Manufacturing Operations Management taking production and design into account at an early stage makes it possible to develop the scenario in terms of balanced workloads and resource allocation during bottlenecks for example Higher operational productivity can be achieved by for example evening workload peaks out into a more continuous steady workload Taking productional restrictions into account at the planning stage of sales scenarios requires obtaining a lot of experience based information and making routine like deductions calculations which burdens manufacture planners The goal of the project was to create a tool that would facilitate planners work and enable faster scenario planning without compromising accuracy The tool turned out to be accurate and functional The solution consists of an easy to use design and reporting user interface and the Delmia Quest Express simulation software From the specification and implementation stages the project proceeded to piloting Together with the experts of Arctech the parameters required in the modelling were specified and at the piloting

  • Case Patria
    be quicker and better at making decisions than the competitors This leaves no room for guesswork in the decision making process Patria Finavicomp has taken up the challenge and is running its composite manufacturing process at full capacity and manufacturing rates of the year 2007 without putting a single brick in the wall All this happens in a virtual factory today s crystal ball Be Quick Think Innovative The basic idea of simulation is simple you can design validate implement experiment and optimise varied ideas in a virtual environment without disturbing real life processes either when creating something totally new or when improving current processes to further throughput and efficiency It even enables trying something totally crazy or revolutionary Simulation is a tool and requires good basic know how management control and monitoring of real life processes On top of this you have to be creative and fearless enough to validate entirely new ways of doing things to develop your business A jump in time Patria Finavicomp is planning to invest in a new composite manufacturing building with new equipment A conventionally designed building would be based on a static model of the needed floor space for tools people equipment etc This works fine when manufacturing rates or product specifications are assumed to remain the same But as soon as a short lead time has been set and low inventory optimum material flow highcycle times or maximum capacity utilisation are the driving factors for factory design the static model is just not enough Furthermore the A380 spoiler design has been linked to the factory simulation Requirements of different manufacturing technologies have been used as inputs when simulating the new factory Building a totally new virtual factory requires seamless co operation and good communication between the model supplier and designer team

  • Case HK
    Ågren ICL Data Oy HK Ruokatalo Oyj HK Ruokatalo Oyj is a Finnish food industry company It has a big terminal in Vantaa from where all food to Helsinki surroundings is delivered The bottleneck in the terminal was the sorter which was built in 1990 A new sorter was not wanted but intensification of the old one was needed Objective The objective of the project was to increase the capacity an increase of at least 30 by making the control system more effective with as small an investment as possible The goal was also to define the new system and to verify the capacity in different load and failure situations The task was to simulate the design as well as to test and further develop the control software developed by ICL Data Oy The new idea of designing and implementing a control system was to use a simulation model as testing platform This was done by connecting the control software to a 3D simulation software and hence to the sorter simulation model with Delfoi Integrator ICL Data Oy built the real software based on the simulation Result The control system and the sorter were simulated accurately so their effect to the system capacity and its bottlenecks could be examined carefully Through simulation an average increase of 40 in capacity and 67 in maximum capacity was achieved When one of the three levels of the sorter was replaced by a new one and this was conformed to the simulation the capacity of the new level was on average 30 50 higher than the capacity of the two other levels During couple of weeks of testing no control software bugs were found in the real system The simulation model was now ready for further development Integration offers a development and testing platform
