The idea behind the supervisor option is that the shop floor supervisor shouldn’t have to retreat to their office to do the most frequent tasks. This includes reprioritize work, control worker attendance, report absence and change feedback as well as report on manufacturing execution tasks themselves.
When authenticating on the time and attendance registration form, the supervisor will be prompted with a supervisor dialogue where they can quickly jump to the desired task.
The supervisor can change between different resource, groups and production units to do Job registrations.
The “Change feedback” option gives an overview for feedback from the selected resources.
You can select multiple records and click the “Update Feedback” button. This launches the feedback wizard form which I normally don’t use because you can not access the picking list. This is a simple way to perform feedback.
After the supervisor has updated the feedback and clicks “Finish” the journals and jobb is updated.
This is a great feature as it allows the supervisor to reactivate jobs that has been reported as completed, but should have been reported as stopped. Earlier this gave a lot of headache because you would have to go into the AOT to fix it or create a job that could do this for you.
The supervisor can quickly access the Attendance form (which you also can do from the terminal directly) from the supervisor options to report absence or check the worker attendance.
After selecting a calculation group,
the supervisor will see the attendance overview.
Here the supervisor can print the attendance form, clock out a selection of workers or register attendance directly.
Clicking on register attendance for a worker the supervisor is presented with a absence registration form with a start/end date and time based on the planned work profile and can input an absence code.
This is done without even leaving the shop floor. When the forman is going to calculate the absence registered will be used and he/she won’t be bothered with roaming the workforce to find out who knows why anyone wasn’t clocked in that day.
Edit job list
“Editing job list” is used to reprioritize the sorting of the jobs on the terminal for the resource.
Selecting a job the supervisor can move it up, down or to a specific sequence number. It is also possible to move the work to another resource as long as it is within the route operations requirements.
Making the job High priority will force the resource to work on this job next. It will be the only job that the resource can start working on and will be notified if he/she tries to start another job.
There are also a lot of other information like capacity overviews, materials and general information about the production order and/or job.
To activate this feature for the terminal user. Go to Human Resources > Workers > Workers | Employment > Time Registration > Supervisor Option and set it to “Yes”.
