Scan a barcode on each item during manufacturing, and you will get the following information:
Standard Time® allows a project manager to keep track of how much money the company is making on a project. Each time an engineer enters his time it will accumulate and have an earned value for that project.
Scroll down for the video. Plus, here’s another page that describes earned value using ‘actual work’ and ‘percent complete’. After going to this page, scroll down below it for a detailed description.
MS Project schedules without ‘Actual Work’ from employees are dead. They are little more than a list of tasks, and soon become out of date because employees complete some or portions of them, and the schedule doesn’t reflect that input.
You need a timesheet to supply those employee hours.
Take a look at this video. It describes the issue and suggest a possible solution.
A spreadsheet looks really inviting; free! If you have a small business with a few employees and don’t have to send any invoices, then it probably is OK. But multiple projects, many employees and different billing rates for them all is when you need a professional timesheet.
But here are some reasons spreadsheet are not the best tool for tracking client hours.
You can easily make the mistake of entering hours into the wrong employee.
Same with the wrong project
Same with the wrong client
You can’t sync with a neato time tracking app like Standard Time®.
You can’t easily share the spreadsheet on the web without collisions.
You don’t get any email notifications when things are wrong.
You don’t get any real project status.
So… that free timesheet may be costing you more than you think.
Project tasks, graphical timesheet, track expenses, client invoicing and time off accruals. Five favorite features available in Standard Time®.

This product is more than a timesheet. It is more than a project management app. In fact, there is enough here to run a good portion of your business. That is, if your business is engineering, manufacturing, or consulting.
Start by jumping into project tasks. Build projects that represent your client jobs. The tasks will show up in employee timesheet. Track hours to them with the graphical timesheet, or spreadsheet-style interface. Track expenses to those same projects. Add your mileage and vehicles. When you’re done, invoice your clients, all within the same software.
Did I forget project proposals? Or project revenue estimates? Or resource allocation? Yep, sure did… but that’s for another day. 🙂
Actually, it doesn’t end there. Employees can enter time off and PTO requests. When their vacation or personal or sick time is approved, those hours are subtracted from their bank. But… wait a few weeks, and those hours are automatically replenished by the time off accural mechanism. Now you’re ready for some more time off!
