SAP Time Management is a very complex component and customers will need to configure it country-specific and customer-specific.
Evaluating work performed by employees and determining employee availability within an enterprise are essential elements for a Human Resources system.
The time information is also relevant in the following areas and is a factor that influences company-wide decisions, for example:
- Information about working times is used to calculate gross wages in Payroll.
- Working times can be used for activity allocation in Controlling. Costs generated by the working times can be assigned according to their source in Controlling.
- Information from Time Management is used in Logistics to determine employees’ availability for capacity requirements planning. In Logistics, you can determine work requirements for the enterprise and plan employee shifts.
Several options are available for recording working times, including Time Manager’s Workplace (TMW), a time sheet (CATS – Cross Application Time Sheet), online menus, time recording systems, and Employee Self-Service (ESS) applications.
You can manage time accounts, such as leave and flextime, manually or automatically.
