Sage 200 Manufacturing

The Key Modules within Sage 200 Manufacturing Include:

  • Material Requirements Planning (MRP)
  • Estimating
  • MPS (Master Production Schedule)
  • Works Order Processing (WOP)
  • Sage 200 Bill of Materials (BOM)
  • Graphical Planner
  • Workspaces and Reports

Material Requirements Planning (MRP)

The MRP module analyses stock projections in relation to demands and generates appropriate recommendations based on these.

See more
  • From Supplier and BOM lead times to minimum, current and on-order stock levels, component locations and Batch sizing rules, MRP backs its recommendations with intelligent analysis.
  • Amend, Combine and Split recommendations to suit your operation.
  • Automatically generate Purchase Orders and Works Orders from the MRP, this integrates with Sage 200 commercials.
  • Introduce version control to your MRP so you can review the history at any point in time.

Estimating

Using information from Stock Control, the labour register, machine register and operations register, the Estimating module of Sage 200 can produce quick and accurate estimates for one-off items or non-repetitive item batches in your manufacturing environment.

See more
  • 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 module analyses all of your current Manufacturing requirements and produces a Master Production Schedule of finished items.

See more
  • 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.

Works Order Processing (WOP)

Working alongside the Operation Times module, the Works Order module records the manufacture of parts using components specified on the BoM or in the estimate.

See more
  • 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 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.

See more
  • 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.

Sage 200 BOM

Graphical Planner

Produce flexible schedules and identify potential resource issues, prompting your operation to change plans to avoid production hold-ups.

See more
  • Working alongside MRP, The Graphical Planner presents an accurate, visual representation of your current schedules for the identification of opportunities, enabling you to improve your production delivery times with an optimised production plan.
  • Drag and drop jobs onto the Gantt chart to re-allocate your resources in real-time.
  • Manipulate the plans to analyse and apply alternative schedules.
  • Review complete jobs by operation or individual resource schedules enabling you to identify delays and resource bottlenecks.

Sage 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.
