Material & Resource Planning

Create suggested works and purchase orders

Create suggested works & purchase orders

Material and Resource Planning is designed specifically for Sage 200. Based on material demand from sales and purchase orders, forecast sales orders, free stock and min stock levels plus the Sicon Works Orders module, a list of suggested works orders and suggested purchase orders are created. Weekly labour and machine capacity demand is created from Works Orders and generates a rough cut capacity plan.

The Sicon Material and Resource Planning module provides a manufacturing solution including suggested works orders, suggested purchase orders and more.
