Material Requirements Planning

It is impossible to understand material and distribution requirements across a large company without advanced planning tools. Sage MAS 500 ERP uses historical data and advanced replenishment formulas to help you understand current and future material and distribution requirements and how they will affect your business.

Unlike legacy material requirements planning (MRP) systems, the Sage MAS 500 MRP module provides single-screen planning. This feature provides up-to-date item statistics, including on-hand quantities, current purchase orders, work orders, transfer orders, and other elements that affect planning decisions.

MRP calculations quickly generate suggested work orders for manufactured items, purchase orders for raw materials and subcontracted services, and transfer orders to move material between warehouse locations.

MRP also integrates with the Sage MAS 500 Project Accounting solution. This integration provides a critical management system for companies with material-intensive projects. It is also a key integration point for both manufacturers who make-to-install and engineering firms that design parts that are later manufactured into prototypes and finished goods.

The planning activity provides insightful information to help you make purchasing and production scheduling decisions based on industry-standard practices and flexible, real-life circumstances.

Your planning personnel can maintain plans by version. This allows them the flexibility they need to manage material and distribution plans by product line, by manufacturing facility, and other user-defined criteria. In fact, the Sage MAS 500 interactive planning methodology is one of the easiest material management systems available today.

  • Maintain MRP by version for multiple warehouses and what-if simulations
  • Planners can easily customize their plans prior to MRP generation
