Operating time recording package for SAP ME and SAP MII


The conLABOR package is an SAP MII based add-on to complement and extend the store floor data collection concept of SAP ME and leaves nothing to be desired in the area of precise store floor data collection, time calculation, and ERP feedback. The add-on package can also be used independently for SAP MII based MES solutions.
