Works Management System

The effectiveness with which job/resource allocation are completed and managed is critical to the ultimate efficiency of the organization.

It is important to have an information system for these activities.

Job or resource management systems, also known as works planning and control, are essential, as the costs incurred through expenditures on labour, materials and plant are the costs of owning the asset.

The general functionality of the job/resource module is outlined below:
