Enhanced Time Collection

Enhanced Time Collection

DMS enhanced time collection is a comprehensive solution for barcoded time capture, field service, time and attendance, and employee management. Available in three versions, the system can be used for simple time capture to full-blown time and attendance, payroll integration, and much more.

  • Eliminate manual time entry with barcode scanning for Production Orders, Jobs, Assembly Orders, and Maintenance
  • Capture operational data on the shop floor or in the field, including consumption, output, scrap, and quality measures
  • Record non-productive and rework time for advanced reporting on utilization and quality
  • Record time and attendance based on employee shifts with exception reporting
  • Automatically calculate overtime, shift differentials, etc for direct export to payroll systems
  • Multi-level timecard approval from shop floor or NAV
  • Access via web browser to enable data entry from mobile devices in the field or shop floor

Warehouse Mobile Data Collection

Unlike other Mobile Warehouse inventory management software packages, DMS’s Mobile Warehouse Data Module inherently supports all NAV location and item tracking configurations to quickly and efficiently enable a mobile workforce. Advanced capabilities for License Plating and Physical Inventory counts significantly extend NAV’s capabilities and bring mobile device integration to the warehouse.

Use the latest barcoding technology to reduce your overhead relating to:

  • Capturing warehouse transactions
  • Reduce or eliminate inventory count inaccuracies
  • Increasing inventory to compensate for inaccurate item tracking
  • Shipping incorrect product counts due to improper inventory control
  • Selling product that is not in inventory

  • Increasing sales confidence related to what is “in stock”
  • Increasing worker productivity by reducing in stock search time
  • Increase customer satisfaction due to on time order deliveries
  • Reducing inventory overstock that was used to compensate for out of sync inventory control software

Safety Log Book

Ensure your safety program is compliant with governmental regulations. The NAV Safety Log Book allows you to log all Health and Safety Environment (HSE) related activities, such as training certifications, safety incidents, and meetings, for a complete searchable history by date, activity type or employee.

The DMS Safety Logbook module allows organizations to electronically log all HSE related information, including incidents, near misses, injuries, meeting minutes, certifications, and more. The logbook helps ensure compliance with the reporting requirements of regulatory bodies, ISO, etc.

The Logbook provides detailed reporting and a Key Performance Indicators (KPI) Dashboard view for management of all activities.

Enhanced Planning Pack

The Enhanced Planning Pack is the single biggest productivity improvement you can provide to your planners. Reduce the amount of time required to manage production activities by hours. Includes enhanced worksheets, obsolete inventory management, and Bill of Materials (BOM) management tools.

Enhanced Planning Worksheet

Provides a “dashboard” view of all planning-related information to enable better-informed decision making, and allowing for easier viewing and management of planning information.

Item End-of-life Management

Automatically uses up existing obsolete inventory before planning for replacement inventory.

Bill Of Material Management

  • Interactive, hierarchical multi-level bill form for analyzing structure, availability, and costing of BOMs
  • Low-level coding by exception to eliminate long delays with dynamic low-level coding
  • Automated component selection based on variant code of top-level item. This allows you to create a master BOM with optional items that are only included on production orders based on the variant of the item being manufactured
