FP PRO: Software for the design and calculation of doors/windows
FP PRO is the main FP SUITE program since it includes the basic functions used by all door/window makers: door/window design, job definition and calculation, analytical estimate, purchasing management, generation of workshop work lists, heat transmission calculation, CE mark management. It comes in 5 versions and is suitable for companies of any size. It is easy to use and employs a user-friendly graphical interface displaying real profiles, multi-joints, sections, 3D styles. It can operate in a network where files are shared over an SQL database.
Uses profiles in aluminum, wood-aluminum, PVC, steel, light alloys.
Handles casements, sliding windows, shutters, sliding-folding doors, window assembly and curtain walls (through the additional FP FACADE module).
Designs rectangular styles, arched styles and styles with intermediate angles.
Graphically presents, in DXF format, dimensioned profiles, multi-joints and sections. 3D display of the styles with real colors and dimensions.
Manages machining operations with the EASYMAC system to assign fittings to the machining operations defined with FP CAM/CAMPLUS.
Job definition and calculation
Guides entry of styles into the job.
Calculates the materials lists for profiles, fittings, glazing, panels.
Optimizes bars, short bars and multi-bar management and search for the ideal bar length.
Connects to FP OPTI2D to optimize glazing and panels.
Connects to FP GEST to handle production.
Calculation of thermal transmittance and management of CE marking
Calculates the thermal transmittance with differentiated values for each combination of profiles.
Defines the Declaration of Performance and the CE label, indicating the initial type tests (ITT) executed.
Defines the factory production control (FPC) plan, listing the checks which may be customized by the type and organized by the phase of production.
Analytical estimate and calculation of lists
Manages the costs for materials, processing times, general expenses.
Calculates analytical estimates for projects producing user-customizable printouts.
Calculates the price grid and connects to FP DEALER to process and use the sales lists.
Purchasing, stock, document management (for more a thorough treatment, see FP GEST).
Automatically processes supplier orders, checking against inventory.
Generates credit documents (delivery note, invoices).
Connects to the corporate management and accounting programs.
Work lists for the workshop
Generates cutting lists for the cutting-off machines.
Generates work lists for the machining centers and welding/corner cleaning machines.
Trolley management for workpieces and frames.
Generates support information for the workshops.
