Sage 200 Manufacturing

Forming part of the Sage 200 suite and including all of the features found in Sage 50 Manufacturing, Sage 200 Manufacturing offers many business activities including accounts, sales, marketing and customer services.

Sage 200 Manufacturing offers the following features:

Multiple Bills of Materials Management

Multiple versions of a bill of materials can be stored and used, one of which is ‘live’ at a given time. With powerful version control, only one person can edit or change the document at any time and a full details change history is stored for each Bill of materials. Old bill of materials can be marked as obsolete, on hold or dead. Obsolete documents can be revived but not built from, and dead bill of management can be permanently deleted if required.

Operation Templates and Bill of Management Copy Function

The copy option in Sage 200 Manufacturing allows you to quickly create a bill of materials. Operation templates comprise the labour and machines processes required to manufacture a finished item or sub-assembly. You can enter operations details individually each time you create a new bill of materials, or create a library of operations stored as templates in the Operations Register for subsequent use within new documents.

Flexible Build Options

The Sage 200 Manufacturing system can be configured to always build subassemblies, or always use from stock, or to allow choice in each case. You can manage products with multiple units of measure as picking lists can be produced at the time of allocation or susequently. Multiple finished items can be included in stock calculations and allocations to ensure finished goods that have similar constituents of another assembly cannot use each other’s raw materials. Sage 200 Manufacturing also supports ‘Phantom’ bills of materials so you can create intermediate items that are never held stock in stock but are standalone constituents of another finished good.

Customised Bill of Materials and ‘Specials’

Users can replace individual items, add new items or amend quantities of existing items within Sage 200 Manufacturing. A ‘Partial Build’ feature means that if for some reason you don’t need to build all the items that raw materials have been allocated for, you can enter the quantity you have actually built. In addition, for expedited builds, the system can cope with the situation where finished goods are built without first allocating raw materials.

Precise Costing

In Sage 200 Manufacturing detailed costs can be built in for each unit or build run. You can assign labour and machine time for each assembly process to ensure accurate costing and additionally you can allocate a proportion of a fixed cost/operating overhead to a run, based on the average number of units per run. If a component changes, the rolled-up costs can be calculated automatically if desired. For components that do not use the standard costing method, the system will re-calculate the rolled-up cost of the finished goods upon allocation.

Full Batch and Serial Number Processing

If your processes involve issuing a batch number or serial number to finished products, Sage 200 Manufacturing software can record this, enabling you to trace it to the customers who received it. Automatically maintaining crucial quality standards and detailed traceability.

Produce Quotes for Multiple Batch Sizes

In Sage 200 Manufacturing you can build up an estimate using a variety of quantity breaks and then alter the quantity and quickly see how the totals are affected. The ability to cost the estimate and print the estimate details for the quantity breaks that you have entered is also offered.

Other Features

  • Rapid Order Entry. The rapid order entry feature in Sage 200 Manufacturing allows you to create estimates quickly and speeds up the creation of multiple estimates thus allowing your customer-facing staff to create quotes quickly and easily over the telephone.
  • Automatic Creation of Purchase and Works Orders. The MRP recommendations to 'make' and 'buy' products can be amended, filtered and sorted, combined or spilt and then actioned to automatically create purchase and works orders ultimately improving efficiency by saving time and eliminating the need to manually key data.
  • Powerful Stock Projection Facility. Sage 200 Manufacturing offers the opportunity to view a list of predicted stock for all or a range of products in each time period. If Sage 200 is using multiple locations, you can also look at a range of products from an individual warehouse. You can see stock predictions for products below minimum level, those with negative stock, or those above maximum level giving you the advantage of identifying potential problems before they arise by providing full visibility and control over future stock levels.
  • Integrate with Sage 200 Graphical Planner. Working alongside MRP, Sage 200 Manufacturing shows graphically the schedule of work and will allow your staff to create an optimised, achievable production plan.
  • Actuals vs. Estimates/Standard. View the costs entered and see the variance against what you had estimated for an operation to provide you with accurate costing and calculation of job profitability.
  • Tight Integration with Sage 200 Financials and Commercials. Your manufacturing staff have complete visibility of the entire production process in Sage 200 Manufacturing; from the orginal sales order to works order processing and work in progress to finished goods in the warehouse. Stock use can be summarised to a single line for each nominal account when posting to the nominal ledger, or split out to multiple lines by component.
