Work Tracking and Shopfloor Time and Attendance
The program supports an employee work tracking system. Employees can log on and off work order operations in real time, usually with the aid of barcode readers. Powerful costing and analysis functions are available and there is a system of special work orders that can cover non-productive activity and attendance. Each employee can have 6 pay rates which can be used in costing shopfloor activity and attendance.
To use the system fully you need to invest in barcode reader hardware and maintain terminals in strategic locations in the production area. Each terminal would run Caliach Vision and be equipped with barcode reading hardware. Such hardware is known as a “wedge” barcode reader as it acts as a substitute to keyboard entry and wedges between the keyboard and computer.
All work tracking functions are available from the Process — Shopfloor menu. After selection of a menu line the Shopfloor menu is installed on the menu bar.
To setup the system you may wish to create some Special Tracking Orders first and enter Employee pay rates.
The Process — Shopfloor — Work Tracking Input function opens the Work Operation Tracking window. You can manually enter data, however, it is primarily designed to be used with wedge barcode readers.
The Process — Shopfloor — Work Tracking Analysis function opens this window (see later).
The Process — Shopfloor — Special Tracking Orders function opens the Special Tracking Work Order Maintenance window which enables you to setup attendance and other pseudo orders that work can be logged against.
