Sage50 Bill of Materials –Designed for small and growing manufacturing businesses:

  • Create detailed bills of materials including an unlimited number of components and levels of build with any number of sub-assemblies.
  • Identify shortages of materials 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.
  • Add a component to multiple BOMs in a single action and rollup costs for each element.

Sage50 Batch Controller – Designed for businesses involved in repetitive batch manufacturing:

  • Enter a sales forecast and combine it with orders from Sage 50 Accounts Professional to calculate the production requirements necessary to fulfill
  • Enter ‘make for stock’ items and allocate and issue stock against work orders, automatically updating your accounts.
  • Goods received are recorded for instant traceability, whilst certificates of conformity are produced, confirming ISO quality standards.

Sage50 Job Controller – Provides all the functionality required for manufacturing companies who operate within a jobbing or non-repetitive environment:

  • A powerful estimating tool provides accurate and timely quotations for work with stock allocated and issued against jobs, instantly updating your Sage 50 Accounts. Invoices can be raised for all or parts of jobs, and then posted automatically to your accounts software. You can also see actual costs versus estimates and the variance.
  • Enables you to satisfy the demands for better control by providing batch traceability for every component so you can maintain ISO9000 quality requirements.
  • Fast estimate entry enables a complete estimate to be entered using just one input screen.  Enter sizes against any component; automatically calculate the quantity needed and quote multiple batch sizes on the same estimate. Also, create new estimates simply by copying a previous identical or similar job.
  • Production can be scheduled backwards including lower level sub-assemblies from your due delivery date to calculate a start date, saving you time and resource.

Sage50 Manufacturing Controller

An integrated solution that incorporates all the functionality of the above modules plus a powerful graphical planning tool so you can control material, labour and machine costs in a busy mixed-mode manufacturing environment:

  • Control production planning, works order processing and resource management, with full traceability for materials tracking. 
  • A powerful integrated graphical scheduler enables production to be planned effectively with finite capacity so you can calculate and run resource plans for all demands.
  • Different production plans can be produced and saved for the same set of demands, so you can assess the impact on resources.
  • Use the ‘what if’ tool to see the impact of different scenarios so you can optimise production.
  • SageShop Floor Data Collection allows you to capture data direct on the shop floor; for example, the movement of stock using either manual data entry or through barcode scanners.
