A job-supporting camera system using image recognition for factory assembly lines to automatically check if proper jobs are done. Preregistered images of proper job results and images of current job conditions are compared to prevent stockout/wrong parts choice. Notifying check results with sounds/LED/external monitors helps workers recognize them easily. Usability is optimized to match workers' workflows. Also, as it's possible to reduce formerly needed ancillary jobs such as prior preparation/post checking that add no value in essence, improve quality, reduce workers' mental burden as well.
