Labor time

Determine the precise proportion of personnel costs for unit costs

A uniform production data model for the entire company, from production to finance – this enormous advantage of digital production control unfolds a unique benefit through electronic personnel time recording.

The ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems can only precisely answer the question of unit costs, which is central to modern company management, if all parameters from production are included. In addition to machine data (production times, downtimes, cycle times, etc.), the second major factor in production – personnel data – must also be recorded precisely. For reliable unit cost planning, it is always a question of what exact personnel costs have been incurred for each product.

How many workers have worked on a product for how long-scheduled and unscheduled?

Thanks to the FORCAM Labor Time Recording application, employees can be assigned to production orders/operations, internal orders, or cost centers. The data is then available for analysis and optimization in FORCAM’s integrated reporting solution and compressed form in the ERP corporate planning system. The presence at the workplace can be reported via the standard FORCAM terminal. Also, it is possible to integrate basic attendance times in the company via external time recording systems, which then report the corresponding times to the FORCAM terminal via the web interface (API).

Recording Personnel Times:

  • Order/operation/material
  • Internal orders
  • Cost centers
  • Attendance
  • Workplace/machine

Provision of the data:

  • Attendances visible in the terminal
  • In the reporting of the integrated performance analysis
  • Feedback to ERP
