Labor

Labor Constants

Set up Labor Constants by going to the System Admin Menu → System Constants → Labor Constants

Auto Clear Employee Form Time Out (Seconds)

This constant sets the amount of time in seconds until the Labor entry screens timeout and clear when data is entered in a screen but the transaction is not completed.

Entering a 0 (zero) for the number of seconds will prevent the Labor entry screens from timing out and clearing.

Global Auto Indirect Code of Last Resort (Subject to AutoIndirect Source)

When using Auto Indirect Method other than NONE, this is where you set the default Indirect Labor Code for situations when the Employee Master or Sys User record does not have a default entered.

Auto Indirect Method

This prompt has the following options:

  • EMP - Populate from Employee Master
  • SYS - Populate from Sys User Record
  • NONE - Disable Auto Indirect

When Time and Attendance is enabled and Auto Indirect Method is active, the difference between your T & A Clock IN and your first transaction is recorded using this code.

Time and Attendance Enabled

Check the box to enable Time and Attendance Reporting. NovoRoi Systems recommends not enabling this prompt.

Transaction Facility Code Source

This prompt has the following options:

  • Use SYS USER Home/Current facility
  • Use Employee Master Facility Code
  • Use Transaction Key (Work Order, Indirect Labor Code)

The Facility Code Source assigned for all Labor transactions is selected based on the option chosen.

Prompt for Work Center in Direct Labor Entry

This check box enables the Work Center prompt on the Direct Labor screen.

Warn user if TA in transaction was more than X hours ago (0 disables)

Enter the number of hours between transactions that will trigger the warning. Setting this at 0 hours will disable the warning.

Enable Labor Efficiency Prompt in Direct Labor

This check box enables the Labor Efficiency Prompt on the Direct Labor screen.

Enable LI Transaction in Advanced Wip Tote Picking

This checkbox enables Automatic Indirect Labor for the Advanced Wip Tote Picking function.

The UseMultiple Labor Setting

The Use Multiple setting for Labor allows for a user to be logged into more than one work order at a time. This can be set to a default of yes or no via the Nexus Employee Master Schema. You can also individually set the flag for each user by modifying the EM.MAINT screen in M2k to flag individual users to be able to Use Multiple. You can view your settings in the Employee_Master table in SQL:

  • Y (or no entry for the setting, which displays as null) = Use Multiple is turned on for that user
  • N = Use Multiple is turned off
  • PLEASE NOTE: The “N” should be a capital N

Directions on how to use Indirect and Direct Labor in NovoNexus with the UseMultiple setting turned off and with the UseMultiple setting turned on is detailed in subsequent sections here.

Time Clock

The Time Clock Function records Time and Attendance for an employee. The employee's time is recorded based on the server timestamp.

Accept

Hit <enter> to complete the transaction.

Time Clock (Supervisor)

The Supervisor Mode for Time Clock allows a supervisor to enter a time clock transaction for the employee, choosing the exact date and time that will be recorded.

Please note: Time and Attendance must be turned on in Labor Constants in order to access this function.

Employee ID

Enter Employee ID (Employee Number from Employee Master)

Employee Name

The Employee Name will pre-fill once the Employee ID is entered.

Entry Date

This field will pre-fill with the current date. The supervisor may change this date as needed. Hit <enter> to accept the date entered.

Entry Time

In or Out

The In or Out field will pre-fill based on the employee's current status. Hit <enter> to accept.

  • If the employee is currently clocked out, the In or Out field will pre-fill with I - Clock In to clock the employee in.
  • If the employee is currently clocked in, the In or Out Field will pre-fill with O - Clock Out to clock the employee out.

Accept

Hit <enter> to complete the transaction.

NovoNexus Labor without UseMultiple

When Indirect and Direct Labor transactions are entered without the UseMultiple setting turned on for a user, the user will log IN to the first transaction of the day, log OUT of the first transaction of the day, and then will only log OUT of transactions for the remainder of the day. The NovoNexus system will use the previous log out time to calculate the total time recorded on the next transaction.

Here is a brief summary of NovoNexus Labor flow when UseMultiple is set to N (NO) for a user:

  1. User enters an IN transaction to an Indirect Labor Code or a Direct Labor Work Order. (The default is to allow only an IN transaction at the start of the day.)
  2. User enters an OUT transaction for the Indirect Labor Code or Direct Labor Work Order entered in step 1.
  3. User then starts the next Indirect Labor session or Direct Labor Work Order session, but does not enter a transaction at this time.
  4. User enters an OUT transaction when done with the Indirect Labor session or Direct Labor Work Order session in step 3.
  5. User continues to follow steps 3-4, entering OUTs only until the end of the day.
  6. When entering the last OUT of the shift at the end of the day, the user will enter an OUT transaction and will clock out of the NovoNexus Labor system by entering a Y in the field Clock Out EOD (End of Day).

Please Note: For the first entry of the day, the In or Out box should default to I - IN and be greyed out. An I - IN is the default as the first entry of the day must always be an IN transaction. If the first transaction of the day defaults to O - OUT, the user didn't Clock out EOD at the end of the previous shift. A supervisor will need to fix this.

Indirect Labor without UseMultiple

Employee ID

Enter Employee ID (Employee Number from Employee Master)

Employee Name

The Employee Name will pre-fill once the Employee ID is entered.

In or Out

The In or Out field will pre-fill based on the employee's current Labor status. Hit <enter> to accept.

  • If this the first Labor log in of the day for the user, the In or Out field will pre-fill with IN to log the employee in to the Indirect Labor Code entered in the next step.
  • If this is the first Labor log out of the day for the user, the In or Out field will pre-fill with OUT to log the employee out of the previously entered Indirect Labor Code.
  • After the first IN / OUT set of Labor transactions for the day, the user will only need to clock OUT of Indirect Labor Codes for the rest of the day. The In or Out field will pre-fill with OUT to record the Labor time since the last log out.

Labor Code

Enter the Indirect Labor Code and hit <enter>. If this is the first OUT for the day for the user, the user must log out of the same Indirect Labor Code entered when the user logged in. In this situation, the Labor Code will pre-fill with the Labor Code entered when the user logged in.

Please note: You may click on the ellipses box to look up Indirect Labor Codes.

Clock out EOD

Enter N for Clock out EOD (End of Day) if this is NOT the final log out of the day.

Enter Y for Clock out EOD (End of Day) if this IS the final log out of the day.


Direct Labor without UseMultiple

Please Note: If the first labor transaction of the day for a user was an Indirect Labor transaction, then Steps 1 & 2 of Direct Labor without UseMultiple can be skipped. The user will have already established a first IN/OUT for the day when clocking IN and then OUT of the Indirect Labor. transaction. The user can proceed to Step 3 and continue to clock OUT of work orders and/or Indirect Labor throughout the day.

Step 1: Clock IN to the first work order of the day

Employee ID

Enter the Employee ID

Employee Name

The employee name will pre-fill into this field.

Transaction History: Recent labor transaction history will display here for reference.

In or Out

Check to make sure In or Out displays an I for IN. If the first transaction of the day defaults to O - OUT, the user didn't Clock out EOD at the end of the previous shift. A supervisor will need to fix this.

WO and Seq (WO*SEQ)

Enter the Work Order Number and Sequence into WO and Seq (WO*SEQ)

Accept

Hit <enter> to Accept

The user is now clocked into the work order. The user can be performing setup or working directly on the work order.

Step 2: Clock OUT of the first work order of the day

When the user is done with this work order and ready to move to the next work order, they will clock out of the first work order.

Employee ID

Enter the Employee ID

Employee Name

The employee name will pre-fill into this field.

Transaction History: Recent labor transaction history will display here for reference, updated now with the current WO*SEQ.

In or Out

On this first clock OUT for the day, the In or Out field will default to O for OUT and be greyed out.

WO and Seq (WO*SEQ)

Enter the first Work Order Number and Sequence into WO and Seq (WO*SEQ). If any other WO*SEQ is entered, you will receive an error message.

Qty Complete

Enter Qty Complete (must be a number, 0 or higher)

Setup Complete

Enter Setup Complete (must be a number, 0 or higher)

Seq Complete (Y/N)

Enter Seq Complete (Y/N) (enter Y or N)

Clock out EOD

Enter N for Clock out EOD (End of Day)

Accept

Hit <enter> to Accept

Step 3: Start the second work order of the day

After the first clock IN and clock OUT for the day, the user will start the next work order after clocking out of the first one but will not enter a transaction at this time. Now that an IN and OUT have been recorded for the day all the subsequent OUTs will use the previous OUT to calculate the time on a work order.

Please Note: The user can alternate Indirect labor with Direct Labor with only clock outs until the end of the day.

Step 4: Clock OUT of the second work order of the day

Employee ID

Enter the Employee ID

Employee Name

The employee name will pre-fill into this field.

Transaction History: Recent labor transaction history will display here for reference.

In or Out

Now that the first clock IN and Clock OUT of the day has been established, the In or Out field will default to O for OUT and be greyed out.

WO and Seq (WO*SEQ)

Enter the second Work Order Number and Sequence into WO and Seq (WO*SEQ)

Qty Complete

Enter Qty Complete (must be a number, 0 or higher)

Setup Complete

Enter Setup Complete (must be a number, 0 or higher)

Seq Complete (Y/N)

Enter Seq Complete (Y/N) (enter Y or N)

Clock out EOD

Enter N for Clock out EOD (End of Day)

Accept

Hit <enter> to Accept

Step 5: Continue to clock OUT of work orders throughout the day

The user will continue to follow steps 3-4, entering only OUTs until the end of the day.

Step 6: Clock OUT at the end of the day

At the end of the day when all work is complete, the user will clock out of the last work order by entering the last work order number in WO and Seq (WO*SEQ) and entering a Y for Clock out EOD (End of Day). This action will clock the user out of the final work order and set up Novo Labor to accept an “In” entry on the next work day.

Employee ID

Enter the Employee ID

Employee Name

The employee name will pre-fill into this field.

Transaction History: Recent labor transaction history will display here for reference.

In or Out

The In or Out field will default to O for OUT and be greyed out.

WO and Seq (WO*SEQ)

Enter the last Work Order Number and Sequence into WO and Seq (WO*SEQ)

Qty Complete

Enter Qty Complete (must be a number, 0 or higher)

Setup Complete

Enter Setup Complete (must be a number, 0 or higher)

Seq Complete (Y/N)

Enter Seq Complete (Y/N) (enter Y or N)

Clock out EOD

Enter Y for Clock out EOD (End of Day)

Accept

Hit <enter> to Accept


A NOTE ABOUT SETUPS

If you need to record setup time on a work order separate from the time spent working directly on the work order, you can have the employee clock out of setup separately from the time spent working directly on the work order:

Clock Out of Setups

Employee ID

Enter the Employee ID

Employee Name

The employee name will pre-fill into this field.

Transaction History: Recent labor transaction history will display here for reference.

In or Out

The In or Out field will default to O for OUT and be greyed out.

WO and Seq (WO*SEQ)

Enter the WO and Seq (WO*SEQ) that is the same for both the setup and work that will follow

Qty Complete

Enter “0” for Qty Complete

Setup Complete

Enter Setup Complete (must be a number, 1 or higher)

Seq Complete (Y/N)

Enter Seq Complete (Y/N) (enter Y or N)

Clock out EOD

Enter N for Clock out EOD (End of Day)

Accept

Hit <enter> to Accept

The user can then continue with work on this work order, clocking OUT of alternating setups and corresponding WO*SEQs per the regular procedure when done.
