eFlex Systems, a Rochester Hills-based provider of assembly solutions, has partnered with Light Guide Systems in Wixom to add augmented reality features into eFlex’s Job Element Monitor (JEM) work instruction module, which is part of its web-based assembly software.
“Many of our manufacturing software modules have focused on lean manufacturing utilizing technology,” says George Jewell, vice president at eFlex. “While our JEM module provides detailed task and model-based work instructions, we understand the additional benefits that augmented reality brings. From this, eFlex and Light Guide Systems have partnered to add this to the eFlex Assembly framework.”
OPS Solutions is the maker of Light Guide Systems augmented reality software for assembly and manufacturing. Light Guide Systems projects a digital operating canvas directly onto work surfaces, providing visual and audio prompts.
“Today’s technologies are having a dramatic impact on traditional manufacturing processes,” says Paul Ryznar, founder, CEO, and president of OPS Solutions. “By utilizing powerful AR technology in new ways, we are able to place the right information in the right place at the right time, which has an incredible impact on manufacturing operations, quality, efficiency, training, and inspection. When Light Guide is combined with eFlex Assembly framework, it exponentially accelerates the value for both products.”
