Labor Modeling Tool (aka Labor Standards Software or Labor Management System)

A labor modeling tool is a tool or set of tools dedicated to building, validating, and maintaining an organization’s labor model.  

A labor modeling tool helps retailers keep labor models/standards up to date as their organization’s size and complexity grows. Many use tools like Opus which enable sustainable management of their engineered labor standards, effective-dated location profiles/attributes, and integration of labor standards configuration and/or time values to downstream systems like WFM or Budgeting.
