Issue with PCR not generating correct processing type in Time Evaluation

Employee works from 21:00 – 06:30 (i.e. 30.50) on Day 1. Day 2 is a day off (DWS = FREE).

At the end of the shift (so on Day 2) employee works an hour of overtime straight from the end of his Day 1 shift i.e. 06:30 – 07:30.

In this scenario, employee should get time and a half as there is no break between the end of the Day 1 shift and the start of the overtime worked.

However, if the employee books overtime from 07:00, so there is a break from the end of the Day 1 shift, he gets double time (which is the standard rate for completing overtime on a FREE day). This is correct.

The 06:30 – 07:30 overtime is not linked to the previous day’s shift (PDI indicator not ticked) so the standard rules are adopted and Time Evaluation is paying double time.

I need time and a half to be paid in the scenario where the overtime is straight from the end of the working time.

I have created a PCR that creates a Time Type identifying the end of shift for every day:

ZJET Determine End of working day




HRS-24 Subtraction

ADDDBZJET Add to day balance

NOTE: HRS-24 is to change 30:50 back to 06:50 which will be the start of the overtime time pair on Day 2.

I then have my PCR that compares the ZJET Time Type to PBEG. Below is an extract of the relevant part of this PCR:

OUTTPVTYPE Process.ty.







HRS?PBEG Decision op.HRS


FILLPVU Processing Type



FILLPV- Processing Type


So if ZJET = 6.5000and PBEG = 06.5000 then the PCR should follow the “ = ” route and generate processing type “ - “. However, it is not, the PCR is following the “ * ” route and generating processing type “ U “.

Any ideas on why this approach is not working?Any suggestions on how to achieve this readily accepted :)

I think your first PCR is not working correctly for that reason Time Type ZJET can not store any value. Please find value of ZJET in ZES table.

Hi Rabi,

Thanks for that. I hadn't set it as a Day Balance so was only on the TES table. I've added it onto ZES and it looks like this:

17 ZJET End of Working Time 7.25

The 2nd rule is now working.

Top job!
