Timesheet based on Work Order
Creating Timesheet for Work Order helps for capacity planning at the Workstations. It also helps in tracking actual time consumed by the Workstation for completing specific operation.
When a Work Order is submitted, based on the Planned Start Date and the availability of the Workstations, system schedules all the operations by creating a Timesheet.
Let's assume we are manufacturing a mobile phone. As per the Bill of Material, time required for the assembly of components could be one hour. However the actual time taken for it's completion could be more than planned. The actual time tracking provides actual operation cost, hence helps in determining accurate valuation of the manufacturing item.
As per the Bill of Materials of manufacturing item, following are the Operations and Workstation through which raw-material items are processed.
On submission of Work Order, Timesheet will be created automatically.
Time Sheet created from Work Order
In the Timesheet, unique row will be added for each Operation - Workstation. This allows operator/supervisor at the workstation to enter actual From Time and To Time taken for each Operation.
After enter From Time and To Time for all the Operations, Total Hours will be calculated.
With updating actual time, you can also enter "Completed Qty". If all the items are not processed in the same Timesheet, you can create another Timesheet from the Work Order.
Save and Submit Timesheet
On the submission of Timesheet, Total Hours is calculated. Also, in the Work Order, for each Operation, actual Start and End Time is updated.
