Montagu uses TransLution™ Software for Labor Tracking
Montagu Foods, a Libstar group company, utilizes TransLution™ across a range of functions in the organization. Now they have extended their TransLution™ implementation to include labor tracking. Each user logs both productive and non-productive time against a work centre and job. All job logging at Montagu is done using Android tablets.
A few interesting information grids have been developed for Montagu. A form is available in which they can view the Job start and end time in TransLution and compare these to the times in SYSPRO to ensure that job logging was started when it should have. There are also colour coded grids to show all jobs in progress and highlighting jobs that have lost time logged against them.
There is also a work centre summary grid which displays jobs that have both start and stop times for each work centre and date. By selecting a work centre, it will display all the job records for that work centre. The grid is also color codes, with records for normal time shown in green and records for lost time shown in red. This grid is used to review and correct data such as Duration, Quantity made or scrapped and lost time codes.
The final grid is a job summary grid which shows all the job data and allows data to be posted to SYSPRO.
