The 3 key modules of a manufacturing software:
- Material Requirements Planning or MRP – the materials requirement planning is the most time-consuming task in the whole manufacturing process. To increase efficiency and avoid problems, you have to know the exact materials you need, plan purchases and know when you will be out of stocks. You don’t want to stop your operations due to material shortage.
- Work Order or WO – this allows you to check and monitor updates in real time, give out work orders, create work schedules, and monitor costing related to the manufacturing project and many more. Use Work Order in conjunction with Bill of Materials to automatically merge the material required to create a product from the appropriate bill.
- Bill of Materials or BOM – in manufacturing, you need a detailed list of materials to complete a certain product. This includes raw materials, intermediate assemblies, sub-assemblies, sub-components, components, and other parts. You can evaluate missing costs, examine variances, and check shortages and more.
There are other sub-modules in the whole manufacturing module including purchase order, sales order and inventory management. The manufacturing module makes Sage MAS 90 and MAS 200 a comprehensive manufacturing software integrated with your accounting and ERP software.
