    Pls refer this link


    Schema Contains Sub Schemas (Each Sub Schema Performs different Activity of caluculation ) Schemas are country defined especially PY Schemas . Comeing to Time Schemas They are universal as said by the other expert

    In case if you want to learn the PCRs which are inserted in Sub Schemas firstly try to learn the standrad PCRs in the System

    For both Time and Payroll. later go Custome Defined PCRs

    Ex: in case of Indian Payroll Try to learn Arrears PCRs IN42 43 44 . INP1 , XVAL

    execute payroll run for one employee and try to check the log of the emplohyee under these PCRs

    Good Luck

    Dear Tanya,

    Schema is a combination of Subschemas, Functions, PCRs.

    PCR is a personnel calcluation Rule - where we develop logic for the calculations.(its a combination of Operations)

    It is necessary to maintain separate schema for Time and Payroll.

    In time mgt - Schema calculates- daily working time, period working time, absence, absence quota, over time....

    (it never calculate the salary) these are TM00, TM01, TQTA, TM04

    in payroll - Schema calculates- Standard pay, recurring pay, additional pay, bonus, other benefits and statutory deductions.

    Both are schemas are interlinked.

    with ZLIT in the payroll schema.

    ZL-Time Results stored in this table. it transfer the time results to the payroll table to IT


    Thank u
