Sage 50 Solution for Small Manufacturers

The Sage 50 Manufacturing Solution is based on the proven functionality of the Sage 50 application for core accounting functions, enhanced  by the MISys Manufacturing software product. Originally released in 1982 and used today by over 7,000 manufacturing firms in 48 countries around the world, MISys is designed out-of-the-box to work seamlessly with Sage 50. When integrated with Sage 50 MISys replaces the basic inventory functionality included in the Sage 50 application with a much more robust and full-featured inventory management solution.

The Sage 50 Manufacturing Solution is designed to be a sensible alternative to cumbersome and expensive manufacturing management systems. It performs the advanced functions small- to medium-sized manufacturing firms need, yet its familiar, Outlook-like interface makes the Sage Manufacturing Solution ideal for the non-technical user.

Manufacturing Information Systems, Inc. , developers of MISys, has combined the latest Microsoft .NET technology with their 20+ years of PC-based manufacturing software experience to deliver a system that provides quick access to the information you need, when you need it, wherever you are. The “look and feel” of MISys means your staff won’t have to learn a whole new set of software navigation skills. Anyone familiar with Outlook and other Microsoft Office applications will quickly feel right at home with this software.

2-User License
Multi-level Bills of Material
Raw Material Inventory
Work in Process Inventory
BOM Revision Control
Stock Check Functionality

Optional Modules

Advanced Purchasing If you need purchasing capabilities uniquely suited to a manufacturing firm, consider licensing the optional Advanced Purchasing module. With just a few clicks, you’ll be able to analyze your material shortages and automatically create all purchase orders needed to replenish your inventory.

Advanced Production Job shops and manufacturers who create variants of standard assemblies (or custom orders for special “one-off” items) will discover that the Advanced Production module provides critical information needed to track production activities. With Advanced Production, you’ll be able to predict the cost of every job and track your performance as your manufacturing orders move through the shop.

Materials Requirements Planning If you need to plan your production and purchasing activities weeks, months, or even years in advance, you’ll want to license the Materials Requirements Planning (MRP) module. With just a few mouse clicks, you can create a detailed Master Production Schedule which analyzes your current inventory in the context of open purchase orders, work orders, manufacturing orders, and (optionally) sales orders. Spot impending shortages while there is still time to respond. Click again to create all the required purchase orders and production orders. MRP has never been easier.

Bin Tracking If your business requires that you keep your raw materials, sub-assemblies, or finished goods inventory in specific containers (bins, bales, bolts, vats, etc.) the optional Bin Tracking module allows you to maintain a unique inventory sub-location for every item or assembly.

Shop Floor Control This optional product adds work center and tool tracking capabilities to the system. The Bill of material routings document the operations needed to process each assembled item, tracks production step-by-step, and allows for more accurate costing of actual production costs. In addition, it passes accurate cost of goods sold data directly to Sage 50 Quantum.

Serial/Lot Tracking This optional module tracks serial and/or lot numbers for raw materials from receiving through the entire production process to finished good inventory.

Labor Tracking This module can be deployed “outside” of the Sage 50 Quantum Manufacturing Edition software, to record actual labor hours/minutes/seconds logged by employees against specific jobs and manufacturing orders, to generate very precise labor costs.

Bar Coding With the appropriate scanner hardware, this module provides integration of scanned data into physical inventory and stock transfer functions within the Sage 50 Quantum Manufacturing Edition application.
