Implementation of a new employee labor scheduling system will occur in three (3) phases with an approximate implementation time of 4-6 months per phase.
PeopleSoft v8.9 is the core of the employee payroll processing system. Employee demographics, payroll data, accruals, certifications, expirations and licenses are maintained in the PeopleSoft system.
The Kronos Time & Attendance system (Workforce Central v5.1) is the timekeeping system utilized across the M. D. Anderson enterprise along with the Kronos Leave Management module. Day-to-day transactions received from the time clocks are maintained in Workforce Central along with manual corrections, paid-time-off entries and all entries from the Leave Management module reflecting employee FMLA, military and maternity leave, etc. All data is interfaced to PeopleSoft for monthly and semi-monthly payroll processing.
There are two (2) major employee labor scheduling systems implemented at M. D. Anderson that receive employee demographic and accrual data from the PeopleSoft payroll system via a daily batch file. Per- Se’ Technologies, ‘Ansos/One-Staff’ v2.1 scheduling software, is the current employee labor scheduling system of all M. D. Anderson inpatient nursing departments while AtStaff, Inc., ‘Physician Scheduler’ v6.01.3C, is utilized by the Anesthesiology & Critical Care departments. The remaining departments maintain employee labor schedules via Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, various stand-alone scheduling products or other manual methods.
