    1. As a consultant I have to suggest my client whether they should go for interface between sap and eternal recording system or not... What you guys suggest which one is better.

    If your client wish to go for postive time management it is must for you create interface either you willing to say or not.

    Without that interface you can't do time positive time management

    2. I came to know that there is a standard interface(HR PDC) in sap to interact with ecternal recording system. I want to know how this Sap interact with external recording system i.e. online or offline using this interface.

    I belive this needs some third party tool to intract with PDC. then you have use time evaluation status TMSTA 1 according to PDC

    I belive it bit differnt from what you are looking for.

    please tell me what kind of time terminal your client is using at the moment?

    Best Regards

    I Belive PDC won't work here, you need to down load inputs from that meachine. Ask you ABAPer to write an interface to upload it to the SAP

    Dear Supriya,

    We have implemented Positive TM recently, I would suggest you to download the Flat file from third party system and write a BDC program to upload it in to Time Events or you can use the RFC which will hit immediately once the employee punch in or out in the third party system.

    I would suggest to go for upload the Flat file daily in to SAP, so that the erroraneous time pair can be identified and rectify immediately to avoid overburden of work. You can schedule the background job to do it regularly in particular time of the day.

    Good Luck.

    Om.

    Arrange to download the events into a flat file from the time recording machine ( you can schedule a program to do this ) , there is SAP standard program which updates the events from this flat file, the program name is RPTEUP10.

    All you need to do is, put the flat file data in proper format so the program can read and upload events.

    Hi

    The best way for Positive Time management is to go for an interface with the external Recording system.

    take the output from the external system in a flat file and transfer it into R/3 by a BDC.
