The planning features in Sage 200 Manufacturing provide all the functionality you need to control material, labour and machine costs in a busy mixed mode manufacturing environment. The MPS function will smoothly control production planning, works order processing and resource management, with full traceability for materials tracking. MPS reads demands and creates a master production schedule for production of finished items and sub-assemblies that are sold separately.
While reading demands, MPS looks at items that are:
- Outstanding sales orders in the Sage 200 Sales Order Processing module
- Outstanding works order demands
- Marked for release in ‘Make to Stock’
- Unfulfilled in sales forecasts
- Required to fulfil estimates in the Estimating module
In addition, the MPS functionality also processes non manufactured items, such as those that have been bought, so that the Materials Requirements Planning module can facilitate back-to-back ordering.

This information is then processed through the MRP module. MRP looks at stock projections in relation to demands and generates appropriate
recommendations by exploding demands through the BOM levels to produce a series of ‘make’ or ‘buy’ recommendations. The MRP module makes
recommendations after considering supplier and BOM lead times, stock levels, work in progress, on order quantities, minimum levels, batch sizing rules, locations of stock components and whether version control is being used.
Each stock item can have an unlimited number of alternative suppliers, along with lead times, cost prices, and suppliers’ part numbers and minimum order
quantity. Stock projection calculates predicted levels of selected stock items over any chosen time period. When you have accepted the recommendations, the program will automatically raise Works or Purchase Orders as appropriate. At this stage, you can also generate Work In Progress valuations.
