There are a variety of reason for a company to record hours;
If they have government contracts (or are a subcontractor) it may be a requirement - which would explain why the company itself doesn't review the data, they are just checking the contractual box knowing it will be there if they are audited.
They may be trying to build a data base that can be used in the future for planning/scheduling/estimating. They may have planned to collect several years worth of data before they used it.
Or the guy that had big plans for the data has been promoted / left the company and forgot all about it!

And either way, the implications are staggering.-Wernher von Braun Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.-Albert Einstein

I think that's actually another severe case of the stormtrooper effect. The Cylons, just like the stormtroopers in Star Wars, are supposed to be the toughest guys they have, usually appear in large numbers and still can't hit the broad side of a barn when a camera is pointed at them.
Or perhaps it's just Heisenberg. Something like ' When a stormtrooper's or Cylon's laser shot is observed, you can determine when he's going to fire, but not where it's going to hit'.
