Introduction:

SHIFT PLUS is a shift management system for maintaining and managing the schedules and related details about the employees working on different projects and in different shifts. The calculation and maintenance of comprehensive shift-related allowances of the employees can be done systematically. The Project involves a transformation of current platform dependant system to a Web enabled system with increased efficiency and accuracy.

Basically, employee scheduling is the process of producing daily schedules for individual employees. And it takes organization’s goals into consideration at different time schedules that can be monthly, weekly or quarterly. Moreover, it is an important component of project workforce management.

The main objective of the system is to minimise the problems that might come in scheduling the employees offer a better solution than what is currently existent in the market. The system has been designed to take care of schedule management and the related details about the employees working in different projects and in different shifts.

Organizations in IT pitch for employee scheduling software, basically for some important reasons:

1)      24 x 7 project support requires staff presence at any time of the day.

2)      Multiplicity of projects with different levels of criticality are to be maintained

3)      To effectively change the employee working hours to ensure that:

a)      Project development is not paused due to employee unavailability

b)      Employees should not have overwork

c)      The 24 hours of the clock are utilized, rather than a “standard working day

Objective:-

  1. The job can be decomposed to convenient modules of setting / editing shift details as per the project requirements so that they can be implemented easily and more productively.

  2. A comprehensive report generation technique is in place to put on screen the various categories of reports as per the requirements

  3. One manager/team leader is only responsible for his team and can’t have the details of other teams. This brings in security to the system.

  4. The allowances of the employees who work in different shifts is calculated by the system for the benefit of the GAP / Finance department

  5. Shift swapping is also possible with the new system.

  6. The employees can be given the facility to view their shift details as well as the allowances that they are expected to get.

  7. Employee backup facilities can be incorporated in case an employee is not able to turn up for the designated shift.
