Employee/Time/Project tracking software

by Omega1501 / May 24, 2010 5:43 AM PDT

I need a program that can track the time employees take on each step during production of a product and the total time, queue time, has the ability to have multiple people working on the same step, and multiple products in differant stages at the same time

Anyone got any ideas?

Time studies.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / May 27, 2010 5:16 AM PDT

The problem here is simple. But be aware that time studies are classic manufacturing procedures. By tasking these employees with any data entry you changed and added costs to their work.

Why not do this the old fashioned way. Get out the stop watch and your time sheets and time each step?

belated help

I'm not entirely sure if I understood what you need exactly, but I can tell you what I'm using, and they you can decide whether it suits your needs or not. I'm working with remote employees who each have My Team Monitor installed on their computers. They switch the program on when they start working and off when they finished their shifts, and I can see this in my interface in a time chart. While the program is turned on, it sends me screenshots of each of their screens every 5 minutes, and it logs the number of keystrokes and mouse clicks they made, so I can compare the screenshots with the time chart and see how much work goes into each task and project. It has lots of benefits depending on what you want to monitor. You can register an account for free and your employees will be able to download the software, also for free, from
