What is Jade Shop Floor Management (JSFM)?

October 17, 2022

JSFM is an acronym for Jade Shop Floor Management. Oracle Cloud SaaS does not provide a solution for Lot-based manufacturing. JSFM plugs this gap in Oracle Cloud SaaS. Fabless Semicon Industry follows Lot-based manufacturing; thus, Jade has JSFM, a specialized service for Semicon Industry.

JSFM – One Stop Solution for Semicon Industry

Semiconductor Manufacturing Industry, especially fabless companies, have unique system requirements to run their subcontracted manufacturing operations. Fabless Semicon companies need their manufacturing applications to be tightly Lot controlled, with the ability to view complete Lot genealogy through their extended supply chain. Most semiconductor manufacturing solutions do not have features that Lot-based manufacturing industries can easily use.

Following are the challenges where JSFM can help Semicon Industry:

  • Lack of an integrated, efficient, and digital Lot-based manufacturing solution in Oracle Cloud SaaS and other ERP applications
  • Need for an automated and simplified Lot transaction process for Oracle Industrial Manufacturing
  • Need for integrations with core ERP processes such as Work in Process, Cost Accounting, Product Lifecycle Management, and Planning
  • Need for Full Lot Genealogy and Traceability to quickly trace any issues with the product
  • Ability to create a tight relationship between WIP jobs and Lot numbers
  • Allow mid-process operations for WIP Lots such as split, merge, and part number change
  • Ability to extend the solution for B2B integrations with Subcons for Lot transaction reporting and automated processing in the system, using Industry-standard RosettaNet Platform
  • Ability to have tight integrations with Subcon outside processing purchase orders
  • Lack of out of box reporting solution for Lot-based manufacturing
