Employee Maintenance – Setup


In the Employee Maintenance window you set up and maintain your employee codes, job titles and rates of pay. You would also use this window to indicate on the system that an employee is no longer employed by your company.

Employee codes are used by the system to provide assignments for Work Order performance assessment and work tracking. To complete a work order, each process route operation actual work times are recorded, along with an employee code. Reports and reviews for WO history are available using employee codes. In Work Tracking, worker performance and activity can be more precisely recorded and 6 pay rate can be used to accurately monitor production costs.
