Product Overview

DELMIA - Device Task Definition enables organizations to design and optimize their manufacturing workcell layout. It deals with the "spatial organization" and components of the plant, allowing quick easy layout and downstream evolution of the layout design. Through the DELMIA integrated product environment, users have a seamless solution to address all their manufacturing environment needs. They have the tools necessary to optimize production facility layout, leading to optimized factory production and output.

Device Task Definition allows users to search a library for over 700 standard robots. The user may verify that the chosen robot is the most appropriate for the task using reach analysis, autoplace, and feasibility studies. The user can then optimize robot layout and resource positioning. The user may also define resource machines such as robots and controlled machines such as programmable pick and place devices.

Device Task Definition also provides tools to complete robot programming. The user can teach trajectories and define actions at given points in those trajectories. Device Task Definition provides a library of default actions, and provides an open architecture allowing the user to define specific robot actions Device Task Definition includes a Teach pendant for robot programming to provide users with a graphical tool for programming robots.

The output of Device Task Definition is a virtual model of the manufacturing cell, complete with Product and Resources as well as the process each Resource (i.e. robot) is required to perform. These individual device processes are then ready to be sequenced using the Workcell Sequencing (WSQ) product.

Provides tools for 3D layout at the workcell level
Device Task Definition enables users to design and optimize their manufacturing workcell layout. It deals with the "spatial organization" and components of the plant, allowing quick easy layout and downstream evolution of the layout design. Through the DELMIA integrated product environment, users have a seamless solution to address all their manufacturing environment needs. They have the tools necessary to optimize production facility layout, leading to optimized factory production and output.

Enables users to add tool actions
Device Task Definition enables users to add tool actions to the robot tasks prior to, or after a target reach. These action items include part pickup, welding, etc.

Users can load robot data from a library containing over 700 entries
DELMIA - Device Task Definition allows users to choose from a library of over 700 robots from the leading manufacturers. A drag and drop mechanism makes it easy to do so.
  • Easy drag and drop mechanism
  • All major manufacturers available
  • Easy to digitally affix tool geometry to robot geometry

This extensive catalog increases user's productivity by giving the user easy access to a variety of robots to choose from.

Each robot can be taught a specific task
Users of DELMIA Device Task Definition can "teach" individual robots specific tasks. This includes both Cartesian and joint jogging. The user is able to verify reachability and a collision free path concurrent with teaching the robot tasks saving time and improving process accuracy. It is also possible to define specifications for other kinds of devices in the workcell (such as weld guns).

Users can set up tags and tag groups, forming the basis for robot tasks
DELMIA Device Task Definition enables users to set up tags and tag groups, which form the basis for robot tasks. Device Task Definition provides a wide range of options for manipulating the tags and associating the tags with specific places on parts.

Users can perform analysis commands on the stationary aspects of the setup and on the dynamic interaction between each moving robot and its environment
Users can perform analysis commands on the stationary aspects of the setup and on the dynamic interaction between each moving robot and its environment. The analysis commands for stationary objects are Measure Item and Measure Between. These commands help determine the static distance between objects. The analysis commands for dynamic interaction are Clash Detection, Collision Checking, and Bandwidth Analysis, which helps determine how much space is maintained between two objects as one or both of them move.

Users can perform feasibility studies
DELMIA Device Task Definition provides commands to check if the robot can reach a given set of targets or to automatically compute where the robot should be located to perform a given task. The user can also perform different types of clash analysis.

Users can build robotic systems
DELMIA Device Task Definition allows robots to be associated to other resources like weldguns or rails to create robotic systems. These systems are then considered a single resource. Users may also define resource machines such as robots and controlled pick and place devices.

Scalability
DELMIA Device Task Definition (WSU) is part of DELMIA-P2 installation.
