What Sage 50 Manufacturing can deliver for your Busines

Bill of Materials

Perfect for smaller manufacturers, Sage 50 Bill of Materials (BOM) allows you to create detailed bills of materials for products to be manufactured, including an unlimited number of components and unlimited number of levels of build and with any number of sub-assemblies.

SAGE BOM will help you identify materials shortfalls and automatically place purchase orders in Sage 50 Accounts Professional, selecting from a list of alternative suppliers. You can also include machine and labour operations as well as sub-contract operations.

Batch Controller

Building on the Bill of Materials capabilities, Batch Controller works for businesses that are involved in repetitive batch manufacturing. Sage 50 Batch Controller automatically takes outstanding orders from your Sage 50 Accounts Professional software and calculates the production requirements necessary to fulfil these.

A sales forecast can be created which when combined with orders from your Sage 50 Accounts software will calculate the production requirements necessary to fulfil your order book. It also allows you to enter ‘make for stock’ items. allocating and issuing stock against work orders, automatically updating your accounts.

ISO quality standards are supported by the instant traceability provided as goods received are booked in.

Production can also be scheduled backwards including lower level sub-assemblies from your due delivery date to calculate a start date, saving you time and ensuring that you have visibility of what resource and sub-assemblies you need to have ready to fulfil your orders on time.

Manufacturing Controller

Building on the Batch Controller capabilities, Manufacturing Controller is designed for mixed mode manufacturers.

Different production plans can be produced and saved for the same set of demands, which means you can consider the impact on resources, for example overtime or additional shift requirements. The software automatically sequences the production for every finished item.

Sage 50 Manufacturing Controller provides greater visibility of how to optimise production, with the capacity to make changes for the better by using the ‘what if’ tool to see the impact of different scenarios. Manufacturing Controller can also be provided with the Shop Floor Data Collection module.
