Setting Daily Work Schedule dynamically
My client has a peculiar situation. They are using Positive Time management with no Payroll integration. Until few months ago all employees were using badge enabled access. The plant managers used to send the schedules for a month of their direct reportees to the HR Time Administrator who would then load into SAP. This was causing lots of problems as there were many substitutions and Time Evaluation was throwing up errors. They have stopped using Time Evaluation and are trackig everything manually.
They have now moved to a biometric access system where employee keys in their personnel # and the shift code. They have 3 shifts plus a General shift. They are expecting SAP to dynamically change the Work Schedule Rule in 0007 based on the shift code entered by the employee.
I was thinking of one solution. When the attendance file (from the time recording terminal)is loaded in to TEVEN (2011) table, move the shift code to the customer defined field in 2011. I would then write a Dynamic Action in 2011 to insert the appropriate Work Schedule Rule in 0007 based on the shift code entered.
1. Is this solution feasible? Any things to watch out for?
2. What if a person does not come to work (weekly off or leave)? Since 0007 has a Time Constraint 1, system would reflect the previous day's schedule. Would Time Evauation run for this person? I want it to run because of Quotas to be generated through Time Evaluation.
3. Since Weekly Off used to be set by the Plant Manager previously, with the current system it becomes difficult. Any idea as to how to proceed?
