Time Clock/Time Management Systems

My company is looking to upgrade its time clock / time reporting software
for our manufacturing company. Key issues are:

Ease of interface with the JD Edwards Payroll module
Time tracking / hour allocation features for shop employees
Time tracking features for office employees (PC links)

We know that Kronos is a JDE partner, and we use Simplex on a limited
basis. Please pass on any information on the package that you are using,
with its pluses and minuses. Thanks.

Robert,

We are currently in the process of implementing Kronos. Our configuration
is JDE supplies basic information to Kronos (Name, Clock Nbr, Badge Nbr,
etc) via an interface program originally written by Kronos but since
modified by myself. Once time is entered, it is passed out to our payroll
department for import into a PC based ADP system. We only pass time because
it was decided that no rates would "live" in the Kronos system. We don't
plan to pass back information for burden and overhead until a later phase.

I don't know if that helps you or not.

Kronos, and works perfect, clocks are on ethernet hub and download perfect
with AS400 Functions. You just have to attend the education classes and
know how it works for it to work for you. Recommend 100%

Robert,

We use MDLINK/SST by Sirius Computer Solutions (www.siriuscom.com). Sirius is a
JDE Business Partner, although I don't know if JDE recognizes the SST software
or not. We are only using the Work Order reporting function at this time. I
believe a payroll interface is available, but we are using a manual punch time
clock system for payroll.

One advantage of SST that comes to mind off the top of my head relates to the
hardware/software configuration. It is a three level AS400/PC Server/Reader
configuration. A Rumba session on the PC Server provides an interactive editing
and updating function for every entry made at the Reader (as long as the AS/400
is available). The Rumba session passes the transactions into a program that
maps the records into a standard JDE interactive program. If the AS/400 is
down, then the PC Server recognizes that and just collects the unedited
transactions in a batch file for posting when the AS/400 is available.

I won't say that we have never had a problem with this system, but we have had
decent success with it (although I believe our needs are fairly simple). The
biggest issues we have experienced are due more to the communication line
between our headquarters and a manufacturing plant 20 miles away. Our T1 goes
through two local carriers, one of which is Ameritech (that should tell you a
lot). It seems that any rainfall, or even a heavy dew, causes a problem in an
Ameritech equipment building somewhere between our two facilities. The Rumba
connection does not tolerate this kind of noise on the line and we have reboot
the PC Server often.
