PSLtime Proof-of-Concept

Project to determine the feasibility to
using AiM for replacing PSL Webtime.

A complete load of the ZPR tables from AiM
data was completed successfully for the June payroll, with the only
discrepancies being individuals who had been terminated or transferred. A
complete load of the ZPR tables from Oct. timecard data was then attempted,
and was successful for all individuals. The next step will be to run a
payroll to completion in UBAN to ensure that the payroll process as a whole
will work successfully.
