DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A COMPUTERISED EMPLOYEE CLOCKING SYSTEM
BACKGROUND OF STUDY
clocking systems are time system used by organization to accurately record the number
of hours worked by each employee every week
The clock have
evolved with time and the companies still need some sort of system that they
can use employees payroll and ensure that the employees are paid for each hour
use swipe cards with a negative stripe through a slot that reads their name and
records the time every time they clock in or out, much like the old punch clock
system of long ago.
At the end of a
work week, the main computer computes the total hours worked for every employee
and prints it out on a spread sheet. This rids the payroll system of human
error, making it much more efficient.
organization does not used computerized employee time system. The organization
make use of manual time clock system, though time saving and error-free, is not

are corrected in the computer time clock system. Even with the advert computer
software and advanced time keeping techniques, the principle of the employee
time clock remains the same.
expresses the hourly employees will always need a way to keep track of their
time and organizations will need logical ways to monitor and records an
employee’s time to ensure productivity.
1.2 STATEMENT OF PROBLEM
The problem is
centered on how to design and implement a computerized employee clocking system
for MALU organization.
From the study
layout the problem determine are:
Inadequacies of the manual time clock system
The problem encountered by the staff reservation
The impact of this software reservation section
The impact of this software design is not entirely
The company policy forbids employees from punching or
swiping for each other and both employees stand a chance of losing their jobs
PURPOSE OF STUDY
The purpose of the study is:
To determine the capability of computer that I amount
of jobs which the computer can properly process at a given period.
To correct the inadequacies of the manual time cock
To advent the computer software and advanced time
To keep track of the time and ensure logical ways to
monitor and record an employee’s time.
To choose a system that suits the needs such as
biometric time clocks, punch time chalks and computer based time clocks etc.
OBJECTIVES OF STUDY
The main aims
and objectives of this study is to study is to put to rest the cumbersome and
hectic nature of employee time clocking system.
The manual time
clock system, though time saving and error-free, but computer to correct the
inadequacy and to make the time keeping record to be advanced.
this study, the company rules and time clocking technology keep changing in
order to keep employee instead in check, with the advent of new technology,
like clocking in and out using noting but finger prints, such employee behavior
is now a thing of the past.
1.5 SCOPE OF
This study is
limited to only MALUM organization and to the staff and the non-staff.
scope above is in such away that the study can be carried out in one and only
way that is computerizing the employee clocking system. This will help to
modernized the inherent problems encountered by the staff of this organization
that militated against this study in the course of gathering facts and figures,
went a long way in limiting the intended scope of this study as a result of
these setbacks, the work resources was available.
There is the
unavailability of library facilities, lack of contribution by men of MALUM
organization. These factors contribute immensely to the un-attainment of the
desired objectives for the study.

successfully complete the resources work and come out with acknowledge work.
implementation and follow up of what is contained in this work will be to a
large extent improve and enhance the activities in planning a computerized
employee clocking system in MALUM organization.
will be paid according to the time. It is commonly placed near the main
entrance or break room. An employee who is not paid for break time must clock
out for a break and must also remember to clock in before. Resuming work after
the break. Sometimes, it is found that employees try to use time clock to gain
