  • Print, copy, re-cost, cancel and delete estimates.
  • Save time by converting estimates directly into Works Orders and BoMs.
  • Create and manage multiple-item estimates.
  • Estimates can be converted to jobs and processed through MRP.

MPS (Master Production Schedule)

The MPS feature analyses all of your current Manufacturing requirements and produces a Master Production Schedule of finished items.

  • Analyse requirements from Sales Order Processing, Estimating, and Make to Stock and Sales Forecasts.
  • Link Sales Orders with Batch Works Orders in order that specific Works Orders fulfil specific Sales Orders.
  • Review a summary of items spread across time periods.
  • Setup and configure MPS to work alongside your existing processes.

What is Sage 200 Used For?

Works Order Processing (WOP)

Works Order records the manufacture of parts using components specified on the BoM or in the estimate.

  • Works Orders can be automatically generated following a range of pre-defined activities such as raising Sales Orders, actioning recommendations in the MRP module, from the BoM Trial Kitting and by converting an estimate.
  • Scrap or substitute traceable components for added flexibility.
  • Enter progress and operation times retrospectively against Works Orders.
  • Benefit from real time processing, logging in and out of jobs in accordance with your daily activities.

Sage 200 Bill of Materials (BOM)

The Sicon Manufacturing module uses the standard Sage 200 Bill of Materials module to create works orders. The BOM module may alone 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.

Shop Floor Data Capture

The Sage 200 Sicon Shop Floor Data Capture (SFDC) works alongside Works Orders and Projects modules to allow real-time capture of Operation progress and elapsed times.

  • Process stock transactions using handheld tablets, PC and Barcode scanners.
  • Control your build items, integrates with stock control, works orders and BOM.
  • The Sage 200 Sicon manufacturing module improves production processes, it tracks stock location transfers and quality inspections.

Sicon Projects

Sicon Projects is designed specifically for Sage 200, integrating with Purchase ledger, SOP, POP, Stock, Time Recording and Works Order Processing. It provides solutions for clients in manufacturing.

  • Create Jobs manually, or automate from Sales Order Processing.
  • Enter Purchase invoices and link to one or more jobs.
  • SOP and POP lines can be linked to jobs and shown as commitments.
  • Stock can be linked to jobs via Stock Control, Internal Issues and Returns. Allocated stock is shown as committed stock usage.

Sage 200 Sicon Manufacturing software is a powerful solution in its own rights, but it also has tight integration with Sage 200 Financials (nominal ledgers), and the Commercials module for sales order processing, purchase order processing and managing stock. BOM use to be a separate add on, but it is now included with manufacturing software as standard.

The Sicon Manufacturing module replaced the original Sage 200 Manufacturing module back in 2020 but has more features, see the original Sage version video below.
