PTS - Time Tracker and Cost Information Module

Every project utilizes an intangible resource–time–which adds to the cost of any project. Human resource costs are sometimes calculated in an ad-hoc manner or get averaged across projects. Consequently, the time spent by Engineers, Reviewers, Site Inspectors, Site Managers and other project entities is missed. The TTC module provides a time sheet with a login and password for every project participant. Individuals’ time is tracked on a daily basis to provide a complete cost estimate in terms of resource hours. TTC can readily monitor a more precise running cost for each project if the cost rate information is provided. The following image shows a typical Time Tracker interface:
