TIME MANAGEMENT

PURPOSE OF TIME MANAGEMENT:

– Defining Holiday Calendar.

– Defining Shift Timings / Work Timings / Work Schedules.

– Overtime Data Maintenance.

– Leaves / Absences:

            – Casual Leave (CL)

            – Sick Leave (SL)

            – Privilege Leave / Annual Leave

            – Loss of Pay (LOP) or Leave without Pay (LWP) – Individual’s Need.

– Daily Production (Work) Hours / Break Time.

– Absence Quotas / Leave Entitlement / Balances.

– Attendances / Attendances Quotas.

– Substitutions.


DEFINE HOLIDAY CALENDAR:Holidays are usually of TWO types:

1. Fixed Public Holidays.

    Example: 1-JAN (New Year), 14-JAN (Pongal), 26-JAN (Republic Day). 

2. Floating Public Holidays.

    The dates of the holidays are never fixed.

    Example: Dussehra, Ramzan. If Dussehra. 

CHARACTERISTICS OF HOLIDAYS:There are 2 basic characteristics of holidays.

1. Guaranteed Holidays:

     Suppose 20-Sep-2011 is Dussehra, if this date happens to fall on a Saturday or Sunday, then the holiday moves either to Friday or Monday.      Hence, it’s a guaranteed holiday.

2. Non-Guaranteed Holidays:

     Holiday which falls on a weekly-off is not given on the preceding or next working day.

     Ex: If 26-Jan falls on a Sunday, then this holiday will not be given on any other date; neither on the preceding Friday (i.e. 24-Jan) nor on the      following Monday (i.e. 27-Jan). Hence, such holidays are known as non-guaranteed holidays.

Mostly the national holidays are Non-Guaranteed Holidays but the regional religious holidays are Guaranteed Holidays.


DAILY WORK SCHEDULES (DWS)

MEANING:Daily Work Schedule (DWS) is the shift timings of an individual, on a specific day.

BREAK SCHEDULES:There are four types of break schedules that exist. They are:

              1. Fixed Break Schedule.

              2. Variable Break Schedule.

              3. Dynamic Break Schedule.

              4. Overtime Break Schedule.

FIXED BREAK SCHEDULE: In this break schedule, timings of the break are fixed. Employee is given certain time duration, say one hour, at the same time everyday, it’s only within that time frame he/she has to take the break.

Ex: Timings are fixed (1:00 PM to 2:00 PM), there are no changes in break-time, daily.


VARIABLE BREAK SCHEDULE:
In this break schedule, timings of the break are not fixed instead employee is given an interval in which he has to take the break. Example: 12:00 Noon to 2:00 PM. Individual can take any 1 hour as break. If he or she exceeds 1 hour, salary must be reduced

DYNAMIC BREAK SCHEDULE:In this break schedule, there won’t be a certain time range, but the break can be taken after working for certain number of hours. Example: Employee is allowed to take break after working three hours from the start of the shift. If a person’s shift starts at 9:00 AM, he can take the break at 12:00 Noon. 

OVERTIME BREAK SCHEDULE: In this break schedule, breaks are taken during over-time of the shift. This can be fixed break schedule which is taken during over-time.

Example:  09:00 AM to 06:00 PM – Normal Working Hours.

                 06:00 PM to 10:00 PM – Over-time Hours.

                 08:00 PM to 08:15 PM – Over-time Break.

Transaction codes used in Negative Time Management.

      A. Transaction Code to Generate the Work Schedule – PT01.
      B. Transaction Code to Change the Work Schedule – PT02.
      C. Transaction Code to Display the Work Schedule – PT03.
      D. Info Type 0007 helps in saving the TIME details of an employee.
      E.  Info Type 0007 is mandatory (to maintain in SAP) for running the payroll.
