Properly Manage j5 Configuration and Customization

In the ever-changing industrial world, it is essential to use flexible software that can be customized, configured and extended. The j5 Integrated Development Environment (IDE) and j5 IndustraForm® Designer provide easy access to many powerful j5 configuration and customisation options.

Applications, like the j5 Operations Logbook, can be extended; desktop and mobile IndustraForm® applications can be added and modified; permissions can be customised; and so on.  The j5 IDE and j5 IndustraForm® Designer have built-in version control, ensuring that all changes are properly managed, and that any changes that are problematic can be rolled back.

Using the j5 IDE, a completed j5 configuration project is turned into an installable configuration bundle (MSI) allowing the configuration changes to be deployed in a controlled and repeatable fashion.

j5 IndustraForm® Designer:


The powerful j5 IndustraForm® Designer, is used to easily convert and design forms – that would be typically recorded on paper, spreadsheets, word processor documents and so on – into an enterprise wide electronic format, that is optimised for desktop computers and mobile devices.  The j5 IndustraForm® Designer, also makes it easy to add tags from Data Historians / SCADA / DCS systems to j5 using a spreadsheet-like interface.  Visual elements like charts and spark lines can be configured with external data, to give personnel a customized window into the real-time process.
