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 – everytime!

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.

JEM's Features & 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.

Easily create work instructions in a simple, easy-to-use system with JEMs built-in work instruction editor (WIE) tool. Use images, written instructions, video or connect to current PDF files. Quickly set-up task sequences and lines with drag-n-drop functionality - no programming needed.

Easily configure pre-requisite determination and enforcement. Capture part genealogy, batch and lot tracking, component and sub-component marriages, as well as rejected parts.

JEM is a web-based software application. Create work instructions or view reports anywhere, anytime via browser on any web-capable device - Surface Tablet, Chromebook, iPad, etc. No client side software load required. Monitor real-time production as needed.

Work instructions and tasks are displayed in real-time. Get 100% time capture for each process task start & stop. Cycle time indicator shows targeted time for each station as well as actual time per station. Station data gives management the tools they need to make data-driven operational decisions.

Built-in and customizable process data collection fields. Get a digital history of your entire production process. Track items such as – cycle times, quality checklists, inspections/verifications, who completed them, tooling measurements, camera images, user specific notes. No limits on what you can collect and view.

Easily set-up multi-user levels and permissions. Track operator login time and credentials. If specific training or certification is needed in order to run a station, log-in requirements can be set to make sure compliance standards are met.

Connect to upper level systems such as ERP, MES, BOMs & schedulers or eDHR. Easily integrate and collect process data from tooling and devices such as; barcode scanners, torque tools, gauges, cobots, vision systems & inspection cameras, pick lights, sensors, augmented reality systems, and more.

JEM has a built-in library within its editor tool to store and access work instructions. Only team members allowed to edit work instructions will have access to the library and work instruction approval process. Built-in version control captures when work instruction are updated and approved.

Every company likes to track different variables and statistics that pertain to their specific production needs. JEM's advanced BI reporting tool allows customers to view the information that is most important to them. Display information in customizable, real-time dashboards. Get alerts via email and texts.

Off-line mode for separate training and production statuses. When new staff is able to walk through each production task step-by-step with written instructions and/or visuals, training is accelerated. JEM also has user configurable areas for station set-up, safety information, MSDS, etc, which impacts training.

Implement digital work instructions on one line, in one plant or use as a global solution. With a scalable solution, you choose when and where you need it. With JEM – seamlessly integrate with other eFlex MIP solutions such as vision image management. All stored on one simple application interface.

Run application locally or in the cloud. You decide what works best for your operation. Both are web-based with direct access to data anywhere, anytime.


JEM Advanced Capabilities

Guide operators and error proof at a whole new level!
eFlex Desktop
Event-Based-Work Instruction eFlex Systems
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.

Capture Unlimited Process Data Fields with Digital Work Instructions
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.

The standards for our industry and customers are requiring validation and traceability at very granular levels. JEM not only provides the solution for these requirements, but it is also flexible enough to grow and evolve with the most complex assembly processes.
