Production Management 

With growth comes complexity...

Sage Production Management (PM) centralizes the production process and gives discrete, make to stock manufacturers and fabricators the tools they need to achieve visibility into their entire production process. By tightly integrating the production process with Sage 100cloud, assemblers, manufacturers, and fabricators always know their costs, the status of items, and the material quantities required to meet demand.

PM provides discrete, make-to-stock manufacturers and fabricators with the tools you need to increase accuracy, promote visibility and boost efficiency and helps manufacturers optimize inventory management, increase collaboration, and automate workflows.

 

This integrated Job Management software for Sage 100 tracks real-time labor, materials, purchases and other costs, while monitoring the status of each job throughout the production process.

PM is more than just manufacturing software. It is a project management and control tool, engineered to accommodate a wide variety of business models. It combines the features of job costing, bill of materials, and manufacturing systems into one powerful and cohesive system to help you manage resources and expenses.

Seamless integration with market-leading Sage 100cloud means that operations and financial data are combined into a single system, whereas other solutions can require the hassle of managing separate systems and databases.

By tracking the steps and activities in the production process – such as production start dates and due dates, staff assignments, and material requirements – PM gives you an easy way to manage resources and track the status of jobs.

Without Sage Production Management and IRP ...

Complex inventory management often involves exporting sales order data, manipulating that data in spreadsheets, and manually creating purchase orders to ensure that materials are at levels necessary to meet production demand. 

Sage Production Management and IRP combine sales order data with manufacturing process data to alert users when ordering is needed. The real-time integrated inventory control system with built-in controls also increases data integrity by minimizing errors. 

Using the Inventory Requirements Planning module for material planning with the Production Management module, you can ensure the materials are available when they are needed on the production floor for your jobs. 

This module will evaluate your current supply and demand over a user-defined timeframe to create a dashboard for purchasing and job planning to automatically create purchase orders and work tickets.

With Sage 100cloud and Sage Production Management...

You’ve got the accurate data you need to make better decisions. Data gaps can be closed as manual processes and information are phased out, and more information is added to the system.

Sage makes it easy to transition to their software. When poorly implemented, even the BEST manufacturing software can collect raw data, but, software is not a solution.  It’s a tool.  That’s why it’s important to choose the right solution provider. 

We recognize that nobody knows your business better than you.  We will help you unlock that knowledge and apply technology to create efficient workflow processes and meaningful reports to guide your company to better profitability. 

With the right training and support provided by VBCC, you’re on your way to using the best software for make to stock.
