Controlador de presenças Conference Paper uri icon


  • Nos dias de hoje, o controlo de presenças é um mecanismo indispensável na maioria das empresas. A solução destina-se a quantificar o tempo de trabalho dos colaboradores cujas funções sejam desempenhadas com recurso a um computador. O controlador afere o tempo de trabalho, dos colaborados, através do tempo efetivo de utilização das ferramentas de trabalho. Numa primeira fase, os eventos capturados são armazenados localmente, para posteriormente, serem enviados para uma base de dados central onde são processados.
  • Nowadays, presence control is a widespread mechanism used by companies as a way to ensure that their associates provide regular output, or to determine the pay check in relation to reported work hours. This work under development aims to conceive and implement ways to monitor desktop-based working hours of associates, especially those who do not need to be at the workplace to perform their tasks or those with a flexible work schedule. This solution validates the desk-time based on the time spent on desktop tools. Furthermore, it includes a local database, where the information about the interaction of associates with the system, is at first stored. Then, all data is downloaded to the central control database for further analysis, which is chiefly to identify and categorize behavior patterns. With this work it was possible to test the feasibility of this kind of solution, which has a self-regulating capacity to quantify effective working time of the associates with precision and fairness-based monitoring, while ensuring good privacy policy among the users – the reason why the system only exposes absolute and relative quantitative indicators instead of detailed reports. This work is basic concept for a solution that can bring out innovation by its approach, distinctiveness, and privacy policy, and in practice this solutions can have many more applications, for instance in the area of human resources management and productivity control.
