Modeling and Analysis Technology
Given the advances made in network technology, sensor technology, and other technologies, a tremendous amount of data is being newly created every day. As a result, there are growing expectations and needs for analyzing all kinds of data and extracting useful information from that data. Fuji Xerox is developing various types of modeling technologies that clarify the rationale for design and improve the quality of products in the early developmental stage. Fuji Xerox is also working on various analysis technologies focused on documents and how people work. Here we introduce some examples of our efforts that include the following: the development of analysis and simulation technologies dealing with multifunction devices and digital printing devices along with such materials as toner, a case instance of analyzing impressions that people get from such printed materials as flyers and brochures, and a study of how people work by comparing the characteristics of paper and electronic media.
