Automated Time and Attendance Monitoring Database using Bar Codes

Abstract / Excerpt:

Bar code is a common sight in our everyday life. The research tries to explore the properties of bar codes and apply it to improve a particular business transaction. The time and attendance application of bar code is specifically studied and would be applied to the ADDU Non-Teaching Personnel. Punching time cards consumes so much time by adding them up, verifying them and transferring them into a different sheet. The study aims to replace the traditional operations on manual monitoring of their attendance. ID badges will be used instead of traditional timecards virtually eliminating payroll errors and reducing payroll preparation time.
The services of the system created include effective monitoring of attendance, eliminating weekly calculations of time cards, ensuring timely payroll processing, retrieving and compiling job quickly. With the availability of this system, a wider variety of reports can be produced by range of dates, one or all schools, per divisions, or per employee.
