Jason – There are several ways that time could be allocated depending. For instance, if you have a short run Operation that takes 10 minutes or less (ex: cutting operation) you would want the operator to clock on multiple Production Orders all at once and allocate clock time based on quantity % of each Prod Order or Planned time %. This makes the operator more efficient and avoids having to clock in and out multiple times on short run Production Orders.
INSIGHT Works Shop Floor ISV does provide functionality to clock in on multiple Production Orders and allocate time. The solution captures actual time, provides an online dispatch list, time approval, payroll interface capabilities and a visual drag and drop scheduling tool. The solution provides a few options to allocate time back to Production Orders and I believe addresses the process you are describing.
