Clocking question

Tim,

We currently have "unattended" employees setup within Vantage to record unattended labor. We use these for running machines over the weekend as well as between shifts. The person responsible for starting the machine will clock in an "unattended" employee for that department and typically someone else will clock out that same "unattended" employee when they return to work. This also allows you to capture the amount of unattended time that you are actually running the work center.

Regards,

We currently run 5.1 and are now moving into a one man running two machines
simultaneously scenario.

I after reading the help screens and doing some testing, it appears that
both jobs would accrue the full amount of labor/burden towards both. All of
our work centers are labor = burden.

We are also getting ready to move into a "lights out" scenario as we have
three machines that "can" run without an operator for extended periods.
Since no one will be clocked in (no human labor) but the machine is still
pumping out parts, that poses interesting questions about clocking and
labor/burden.

Any insight would be appreciated.
