Bill of Materials
The full Manufacturing Suite is an incredibly powerful and comprehensive set of modules, but for many businesses involved in assembly, the Sage 200 Bill of Materials (BoM) module alone may fulfil your requirements.
- From materials and machines, to labour and operations; split your assembly operations into manageable segments.
- Create and store multiple BOM templates for future use.
- Accurate cost-analysis can be performed from component level, through to the full build.
- The Trial Kitting tool forecasts your production capabilities by reviewing current stock levels, against the Bill of Material specification.
- Batch and Serial Number functionality can be applied, from component level, through to the full build.
Analyse your capability of producing a BoM before committing it to production, taking into account various elements such as build costs and your current stock levels.
- Include an unlimited number of BoMs in your trial-kitting analysis.
- Review the quantity of each individual component required to produce your BoM’s, and whether you currently have enough of these components in stock..
- Analyse the labour resources, or types of labour by how much time will be required for each labour-type.
- Review the Machines, Tooling and Subcontractor work required for your BoM.
There are areas within the BoM module that can be automated, saving your operation a considerable amount of time and alleviating your workforce from repetitive and error-prone tasks.
- Automatically generate Purchase Orders when stock levels reach a pre-defined level.
- Automatically save multiple versions of BoM records for better control and traceability over your production process.
- When multiple BoMs are being allocated you can choose whether to automatically continue, stop immediately, or stop after producing the BoM.
- Automatically print picking lists after the creation of allocations.
The Costing option allows you to analyse potential and actual costings for individual or groups of BoM records.
- Gain a good understanding of the timings and costs associated with your BoMs.
- Use the Costing feature to help manage your selling prices.
- Use the comprehensive built-in reports to review production costs from many areas of your business separately such as operations, machines, materials and labour.
- Analyse your post-production margins to ensure your processes are sustainable.
Traceability and Version-Control
Store multiple versions of BoM records, automatically tracking each change made to the BoMsto provide your business with an audit trail of each step of the production process.
- Review all of the changes that have been made to your BoM at any point in time.
- Roll back to any previous point in the BoM history.
- From the lowest component level up to the finished product, track each and every element of your item.
- Monitor quality standards and adhere to ISO regulations, tracing batches back to suppliers and key components.
The Sage 200 Bill of materials module integrates extremely well with many other areas of Sage 200 such as Stock Control and Manufacturing, streamlining your internal processes and coordinating your distribution channels.
- Create an allocation to reserve stock whilst you generate pick lists to source these materials from stock.
- Works in tandem with Manufacturing to create Works Orders and Sales Orders.
- Automatic creation of Purchase Orders to fulfil BoM requirements..
- Drive more accurate Sales Forecasts with accurate build costing.
