There are two ways to use Manual Job Management:
- Through the Tools menu from the Job management menu items.
- From the Downtime Tracking histogram. Read more on using this function here.
Job Management menu items are located under Tools (or under Quality Management on machines with this product active).
Job Management Setup
There are 4 menu items that need to be completed in order to load a new job:
Before adding a new customer to ei3, search to see if they have been added previously. This can be done by typing an asterisk (*) or some combination of the first few letters of the customer name.
Before adding a new product to ei3, search to see if it has been added previously. This can be done by typing an asterisk (*) or some combination of the first few letters of the product name.
Next, add in the Product Steps and Targets.
The Product steps are the different Operations (Coating, Slitting, Extruding, Printing, Laminating, etc.) that the product can be run on. Each step allows you to set the target speed for each of the Operations.
- Give the Job a name and description
- Choose the Product from the dropdown list
- Choose the Customer from the dropdown list
Once a job has been entered, it can be saved and loaded onto a machine.
Choose a machine from the dropdown list to run the selected job on.
You can have all your jobs for the week sitting in the Job Queue for easy setup – just click the Load icon when it is time to run the job.
