for cost analysis and dividing labour cost into various

jobs and departments. The main functions of time keeping

department are as follows:

in the factory.

3. Preparation of pay rolls where workers are paid on

time basis.

labourers for making distinction between normal time,

overtime, delay in attendance and early leaving.
