TIME AND ATTENDENCE MODULE
AND HOURS CALCULATION
No more lateness and wasting time at production! Use this joinery software to manage work smoothly.
2 in 1 – together with production software you receive a tool to register employees check-ins and check-outs, without a necessity of buying additional equipment.
Why is it worth using Time and Attendance module, even though you already have card /fingerprint system:
You can see an updated status, with information about who is present at work, what time they checked-in and whether they just “hanging around”.
If an employee checked-in but failed to start work, you can see that straight away in your panel (even when you are working at home).
Check, how much time % at work is really spend on working.
Very often it turnes out, that for 200 hours spent at the production hall, only 140 hours are effectively spent on working operations.
The check-out function is locked, until all tasks are closed, so you can monitor things better and stay organized.
Thanks to bar coded production orders employees easily navigate among tens of daily projects
Thanks to the orders print outs which “travel” as the product is moved from place to place, all employees know what’s what – and registration of progress can be done with bar code readers. This solution ensures registration process is really fast and takes no longer then a few seconds, and you have active progress view.
Thanks to product templates you save time, standardize work procedures and minimize mistakes.
The rule is simple – instead of creating each time a product for the same Client, use earlier defined template adding only data specific for that order.
This is possible thanks to any number of extra boxes, which you can add to your orders and products, and a possibility of attaching graphic files. How to add additional parameters? – click to see.

- furniture panel producers / furniture fronts,
- manufacturers of finishing elements, such as skirting.

Tips and tricks, how to adjust your new production management software
Prepare product templates; all what is left to do later – fill out customized for your Client boxes
If we look at the example of custom-made door order, creating a new product each time for different measurements and combination would be a madness and a total waste of time.
It proves a better solution to prepare templates for main groups / types of products you have, add to them production technology and everything what is constant and repetitive and simply drag it to your current order. Using Prodio’s joinery software it is pretty straightforward.
When a Client places an order you can complete information directly in the created template and fill out boxes for type of finish, size, door handle type – in this way, clear information will get to the production,
When you move very fast from order to order it is very important to make the whole process as easy as possible.
Print manuals with bar codes, which you put at the production hall – see how? and use bar codes for registration – link.
Use tags to mark particular priming or sanding – to see clearly the stages of the whole process
Within this technology (as long as it happens at the same working station) separate priming and sanding by marking them as different processes – in the tag box type, write which time this is.
Thanks to this step you and your employees would see exactly which stage you are at and if you are stuck, where the problem is.
To produce multiple element products use tagging to mark their parts
Technology of the product allows you to set up a path both for door, as well as door frame, by tagging “door” and “frame” and clarifying that division.
Short-list with other suggested settings and useful tricks in production management:
What is the best to write down and set as “product” in Prodio:
The main type of products which you are going to personalize for the order.
Production plan – what can you set as machines / operations?
We recommend dividing into procedures ex. sanding, priming, varnishing, assembly, as well as for particular machines such as saw, file, etc.
Make sure to devide your view into separate production halls, to make it clear.
Production plan – tips regarding displaying and planning
It is necessary for you to turn on previous operations tagging, so your employees know where to start and which procedure is still incomplete or queuing. How does it work?
Additional boxes, worth adding for your branch:
All features personalized in the product:
– RAL color (we recommend to divide it into white / others),
– finishing, etc.
Additional TAG-s at the production hall and in the product categories
– types of processing, ex. Sanding 1, Sanding 2,
– components ex. frame / door wing,
– colors: white / color (plus the RAL number in the product description).
