Manufacturing Software


Barcode Work Order Tracking

Use barcodes and RFIDs to collect time on the shop floor. Get actual employee hours. Learn how long jobs and each phase of your processes take.

Barcode Expense Tracking

Scan both time and materials for comprehensive reports on everything you use on the shop floor. Learn the real cost of both labor and materials.

Work In Progress

View work in progress on a big screen like those airport arrivals and departures screens. See hours, cost, and job status. Get the same WIP screens on your phone or tablet.

Employee Status

Employee status is also shown on a big screen, like Work In Progress. You see the current job, hours for today, hours for this week and task status.

Work Orders

Track the status of work orders through the shop floor. Where are they at any given time? How many hours have been worked? And who worked on them last?

Inventory and BOM

Scan inventory and BOMs to subtract items from inventory. When inventory is low, get notified by email, or restock automatically with a script.

Project Status

Projects may contain lists of tasks assigned to employees. Compare actual work against estimates, get total project costs, and view resource allocation for projects.


Customizable reports include grouping, sorting, filtering, and scripts to compute mathematical results. Or, bypass reports and bring data directly into MS Excel with the XLST add-on.


Compute KPIs for work in progress, replentish inventory, update databases, or just run background tasks on a periodic basis. Scripts extend your reach.

Tool Control

Check tools out for accountability and hourly maintenance time tracking. Know where every tool is. Use in your tool room or on the shop floor for tool control and accountability.

Save Time and Money

Standard Time is key to automation. Go paperless. End employee-intensive processes. Simplify and streamline.
Standard Time Manufacturing Software
Track time to projects and tasks. Bill clients with custom rates for each project and employee, start and stop timers, submit timesheets, and close out projects. You can do this! Time tracking software features to meet individual or corporate needs: Track time to a full project and subproject heirarchy, or just your own to-do list. Invoice clients, bill internal clients, or just track employee hours. Document your time for reporting and status.
You can optionally view employee hours in a nice weekly timesheet. Display seven days, or a full pay period. Want to take it further? Show time and expenses in calendars and charts.
Projects, jobs or work order can have a full hierarchy of tasks. These represent your manufacturing steps or processes. Or, they may represent engineering tasks. Each task can use start, finish and due dates, estimated duration, and dependency links. View tasks in a Gantt chart.
Employee time off is in there too! Set up accrual rules for vacation, sick, and personal PTO. Standard Time automatically accrues hours for each employee. Now request time off and subtract from balances when approved.


Manufacturing engineers, assembly managers, supervisors, and executives need good time tracking and reporting they can use to make better business choices. Which jobs are taking the most time? Which employee is the most efficient? Are you wasting time on secondary projects? Find out with Standard Time.
