Sicon Material & Resource Planning (MRP) is designed for businesses needing to streamline their decision making processes and simplify stock planning. Used in conjunction with Sicon Works Order Processing (WOP), there are two sides to the MRP solution; the first relates to stock movements and the second Rough Cut Capacity Planning.
From a stock perspective, demand is taken from a number of sources, including existing sales and purchase orders, forecast sales orders, free stock and minimum stock levels. Running Material Planning generates a list of suggestions for both what you need to order and what you need to make. These can then create purchase orders, kits or works orders as required.
Rough Cut Capacity Planning provides a number of options for the user to view a daily/weekly schedule of labour and machine capacity based on existing live works orders. These graphical views, with a drag and drop interface, enable users to adjust the production plan by moving works orders and sub-assemblies in real-time.
The Sicon Material & Resource Planning requires Sicon Works Order Processing and is purchased as part of the Manufacturing Suite:
Integrates perfectly into bespoke manufacturing environments to capture Stock, Purchase Orders, Timesheets and other costs to give budget versus actual comparison.
A simple, single level bill of materials module that can be amended prior to building the finished product either for Stock or directly within the Sage 200 Sales Order.
Sicon WOP captures production data from a variety of sources, including stock, labour, machine and subcontractors, giving visibility of overall finished product costs and updating stock levels. Whilst WOP can work independently of Sage 200 BOM, when combined, this provides enhanced functionality to create Works Orders.
An Android based app that links to both the Sicon WOP and Sicon Projects to allow real-time capture of operation progress and elapsed times. The addition of this module allows users to issue allocated stock and record inspection results.
An Android based app that allows manufacturing businesses to interact more efficiently with Sage 200. Examples include, receiving and putting away stock, picking and issuing stock to a Works.
