MAXITRACK shop floor tracking and job costing

detailed job costing

MAXITRACK is similar to MAXITIME in the way it calculates hours worked, overtime, etc. based on scheduled shifts and work rules.

However, in addition to time worked, it also tracks what the employees are actually doing and allocates the time to the jobs, activities, and sub tasks, etc. that are worked on during the day.

In a batch engineering or jobbing environment where there are a lot of jobs at one time, it is often convenient and more accurate to use a bar code scanner attached to the MAXIPORTABLE to scan job cards rather than entering the numbers via the keypad.

It is also possible to allocate materials or components or parts to the job (also usually using a bar code scanner) and thereby keep track of ALL direct costs and profitability, as well as tracking job progress.
