Material requirements planning (MRP) is a system that helps manufacturers plan, schedule, and manage their inventory during the manufacturing process.
Investing in specialist manufacturing and MRP software gives you end-to-end visibility and control across your business, from order input, MRP, automated purchase and works order generation through to completion, despatch and invoicing.
Sage 200’s Material and Resource Planning module will recommend when to make and buy products in a clear and simple interface that can be easily filtered, sorted and actioned to create Purchase and Work Orders without the need to manually key data, saving time across the business and reducing the likelihood of human error.
The Stock projection functionality of MRP allows you to view a list of predicted stock levels across all, or a range, of your products. It identifies potential problems before they occur by providing accurate forecasts of stock levels meaning stock should never fall below minimum levels or exceed maximum storage capacity.
Master Production Scheduling in the MRP module will smoothly control production planning, Works Order processing and resource management. This provides all the functionality needed to control labour costs, machine time, and reduce manual planning time, allowing the system to handle back-to-back ordering seamlessly
