Labor Processing

Labor Processing

Labor is a significant expense for most companies and accurate labor reporting is essential for the correct costing of manufactured items that include labor in their routing steps. An effective labor tracking and reporting system needs to provide you with the information you need to appropriately plan your workload, eliminate inefficiencies and maximize margins.

Fitrix Labor Processing collects labor transactions for production orders. Labor is entered for both setup and run hours, and for direct and indirect hours. Order completion statistics are updated real-time. The hours and completion are analyzed for efficiency at multiple levels within the organization. Efficiency inquiries and reports show this performance in summary and detail formats.

Labor Processing is an application in the Production management family. It provides a complete picture of the activities that occur and the costs that were incurred in completing production work orders and supports the flow of this information into the general ledger, payroll and costing modules.
