Worker assistance system

Worker assistance system

Engineering for smart factory together

Schulz Engineering and Armbruster Engineering

For worker guidance at the workplace and subsequent traceability of the manufactured components, we use the ELAM worker assistance system from our cooperation partner Armbruster Engineering. 

The use of ELAM software creates agile and flexible assembly plants in which employees are supported by digital work instructions in assembly.

Factory 4.0

Digital and interactive assembly instructions

Each assembly process is visualized on a touch screen with the help of digital assembly instructions, known as worker guidance.

In this way, the employee is guided step-by-step through the assembly process, preventing errors and ensuring a controlled production flow.

Each assembly process is automatically evaluated and documented so that complete traceability can be guaranteed.

The digital assembly instructions are created and maintained centrally on a server for all assembly stations.

Smart tools

Smart tools can be easily connected to the ELAM system. Any hardware components can be included in the assembly process via corresponding controllers.

Tools, such as intelligent screwdrivers, robots, pick-to-light systems, presses or measuring equipment, can interact with the ELAM system depending on requirements.

All relevant process data is automatically stored in the database and can be viewed at a later date.

Product life cycle


Product life cycle record

At the start of an assembly process, a digital "product life cycle record" is created for each product.

Quality Gates

The entire evaluation of the assembly process is stored in the product life cycle record. It includes, for example, the status of the individual work steps (OK/ NOK), data of connected tools (e.g. screwing data), time and the name of the employee.


For complete traceability, not only the product itself but also the components and materials used in the product are documented. Serialized material labels are scanned and stored to the assembly step in the product life cycle record.

Management and evaluation of production data

The data on all possible processes, process points and also quality indicators are stored in the ELAM database and can be found quickly and easily.


The customer can view all the collected data via the ELAM web server either in the form of a product life cycle record or via a self-configured dashboard view.
