JEM: Job Element Monitor

Start Your Digital Transformation.

Are you growing frustrated with using Word, Excel, Powerpoint or homegrown systems to create and manage work instructions, SOPs and training documents? Tired of paper and inefficient processes? Job Element Monitor (JEM) is an easy-to-use, software solution to configure digital work instructions, enforce process control and error proof operations. Easily connect IoT devices while collecting 100% time studies, process data and images down to the task level for review and Andon reporting needs. Real-time visibility of operations and quality control at a whole new level!

Smart Work Instructions.

Build products right - every time!

Whether you are a model-based or component-based manufacturer with thousands of parts or product variations, eFlex has you covered. Link work instructions to Bill of Materials (BOMs), ensuring products are built correctly, every time, even when changes are made in process. Work instructions that are part of an advanced system will automatically react to your model and component variations, and only display the correct work instructions for what is currently being built in station.

BOM or Model

Easily connect to upper level systems (ERP).

Work Instructions & Device Control Variables

Automatically display the correct build option, associated work instruction, and device control based on BOM or Model at the station level.

Collected Data

Collect and analyze unlimited process data for continuous improvement.

  • Torque & Angle
  • Pass & Fail
  • Cycle Time
  • Digital Birth Certificate
  • and more...

Compatible with all industries.

Of any size. With any complexity.

Automotive

Medical Device

Heavy Equipment

Aerospace

Electronics

Appliances

Food & Beverage

Consumer Goods

and many more...

Uses for digital work instructions:

Maintenance

Eliminate maintenance paper slips and manual tracking. Never miss a step or timeline and get a permanent digital record for all assets and equipment.

Manufacturing

Visually guide operators on correct assembly procedures with pass/fail validation. Operators will always have the most up-to-date WI available in station.

QMS

Digitally monitor, manage and document the quality process. Ensure products are built correctly, defect free and meet compliance and reguatory standards.

Safety

Quick links and digital display of safety information for operators. Station set-up, MSDS, protective gear or any industry specific information necessary.

Training

Utilize off-line mode digital work instructions for step-by-step simulated training. Accelerate training and digitally monitor outcomes and readiness.

Audits

Complete digital audits and inspections of your processes. Real-time data collection ensures fast and accurate results for continous improvement efforts.

JEM Features and Benefits.

eFlex's digital work instructions provide numerous benefits in an effort to improve your manufacturing process. Improve any area of your facility, simple and easy.

JEM's Advanced Capabilities

Guide operators and error proof at a whole new level with these advanced capabilities!

eFlex Systems Interface Example.

Event-based work instructions.

Provide automatic feedback loops to operators and never leave them guessing what to do next. For example, if a part is rejected at the station, a work instruction would automatically display to the operator what to do based on the rejected event. When work instructions are formatted to show operators exactly what to do given possible events, delays and errors are virtually eliminated.

Animated Guidance

Animated guidance provides faster learning potential and visually guides operators through work instructions. For example, if an operator has five bolts to fasten, the work instructions would highlight the bolt to be fastened first, then, when that is completed, would highlight each subsequent bolt in order until the series is completed. This provides more specific visual guidance and ordering with less room for error and misunderstanding.

Process data capture.

Collect unlimited amounts of process data with built-in and customizable data collection fields. Track items such as – cycle times, quality checklists, inspections/verifications, who completed them, tooling measurements, camera images, user specific notes, and much more. This will further eliminate paper at the station level and reduce manual data entry errors or missed entries.

Continuous Improvement

Lean Manufacturing Principles

The JEM platform streamlines lean, continuous improvement initiatives. Users can quickly and easily configure processes and create standarized work instructions. Connect and enable IoT devices with no programming needed. Ensure operators follow the appropriate task sequence for error proofing. Collect unlimited amounts of process data. And ultimately, turn data silos into useful insight for ongoing improvement initiatives.
