Attendance for Manufacturing
TIME CLOCKS WITH DUAL CARDS
Time clocks or terminals record the time and activities of clocked-in employees.
These records are compared in the system with employee work calendars/shift plans to capture any alterations in real-time. The terminals can be located in different locations to monitor idle and active work time. For example, time spent in changing room, on a smoke break, actual work. Each employee is given a card coded with their unique ID number.
The card can function to:
1/ clock -in and -out by tapping the terminal
2/ to open the doors, ramps, or to access specific locations within the work area.
If both 1/ and 2/are required, we provide Dual Cards with NFC and RDIF signals.
EFFICIENCY AND LATE & MISSING FUNCTION
Shift leaders or managers have a constant and immediate overview of a number of workers on the work floor. The system allows to set up the late and missing rules. Missing employees can be notified by sms about their duty to join the shift. Shift plan defines the number of workers required on each production line with a specific list of skills.
If there is an alteration, e.g. some workers are missing or work is completed faster than planned, the floor manager can shuffle the workforce around for the most effective use of skills and time.
Dashboard provides live data on each production line or any other monitored factory location. Real-time data is in a form of graphs and charts. Best practice shows that it is ideal to have the dashboard data displayed by all production lines on large screens.
The Skills functionality was developed in close cooperation with our client – one of the largest staffing agencies in Europe. The Skills module is broadly used in manufacturing and logistics.
In short, it enables to define a set of skills required for performing specific tasks on the shifts. The system records the validity of required certificates. Employees with expired certification are not allowed on the shift.
REPORTS WITH BARCODES
The system allows to create sets of reports in a form of pdf or excel. A special report containing barcode has been developed specifically for use in the factories. This report can be downloaded item by item or as a mass report.
SKILLS MATRIX SETUP
Each employee can be required a have different set of skills. The system recognizes compulsory skills. This means that if the skill is expired/absent, the employees can’t be assigned to perform a specific job or task or the system does not allow him to clock-in.
Any number of skills can be added in the configuration. These can be put in categories according to importance, e.g. top level skills and subskills. Each skill is assigned an expiry date. Managers receive notification a few days prior to the skill’s expiration.
ABSENCES AND MASS APPROVALS
Employees can request time off using their mobile app or by reaching out to the Chief of the Shift who will record their absence in the system. Managers can perform mass approvals/rejections of the absences on the web or on the mobile app.
