TimeClock Manager - Job Costing & Floor Labor Tracking


Example: An auto body shop company's employee clocks in upon arrival for work under the Job Code #16 (department) listed as “16-Windshield Repair." This is the position within the company which this employee holds and all hours worked in this department are accumulated as a windshield repairman, no matter the particular auto being worked on.

As the day begins, the employee will select from the available list on the time clock, his first job of the day: Cost Code 65, Mustang/Body Work/Windshield Repair, which is the job cost code assigned to the 1965 Green Ford Mustang that came in for repair earlier in the week. Two hours later, the employee finishes the Mustang and moves on to the next job assigned by his supervisor, the 1994 Honda Civic, which has also been assigned a job cost code. He will select “Change Job Cost Code” on the time clock, and select “Honda” from the list. The windshield repairman never actually clocked out; he merely changed the account to which his labor will accumulate until the next cost code change.

Throughout the entire shift, the employee follows this procedure, starting and finishing individual jobs. Management now has a record of all the accumulated hours this employee spent in windshield repair (from the Job Code), and also all hours that were spent on each individual automobile (from the job cost code) worked on during the shift. A report can be generated which will show the total hours spent by each employee on each individual job where hours were accumulated. It is also possible to print a report detailing a particular job cost code which will reflect each employee's accumulated hours against that job
