|One of the most critical and time-consuming aspects of manufacturing is managing
the task of maintaining sufficient amounts of materials on hand at all times. How many
times has production been delayed because a necessary material was not in stock or you
could not get it in time? The Sage MAS 90 Material Requirements Planning (MRP) module can help
you eliminate purchasing and scheduling problems. It is designed to simplify and speed up
the work processes of purchasing and production managers, enabling them to plan more
effectively.The MRP module looks at demand based on open sales orders and
sales projections, and supply based on inventory stock levels and open
purchase orders. Product build times, lead times and supply and
demand functions are combined to estimate the need for an inventory item. With
the MRP module, you can produce reports based on action by date to advise the purchasing
manager which orders need to be placed, which need to be revised and which need to be
canceled. The MRP module allows for entry of monthly and weekly sales projections by
warehouse for each manufactured item, and monthly and weekly sales projections by
customer. These estimates, combined with sales order information, can suggest when to
purchase raw materials, etc.Eliminate costly production delays and simplify your
scheduling. Complete your Sage MAS 90 Manufacturing Solution, and take control of your material
purchasing and production planning, with the Sage MAS 90 MRP module.

||Warehouse Groups allow you to define one or more groups
that are used by the MRP Generation process to consolidate recommendations for material
acquisitions. For reporting purposes, information is also segregated by Warehouse Group.
| Sales Projections
||The MRP module allows for entry of monthly and weekly
sales projections by warehouse for each manufactured item, and monthly and weekly sales
projections by customer. These projections can be used, along with existing sales orders,
to obtain information from the MRP report to be used for purchasing raw material. The
Projected Demands Report shows actual sales versus projected sales for analysis purposes.
||The MRP Generation process looks at demand
based on open sales orders, sales projections and work order component requirements, and
supply based on inventory stock levels, open purchase orders and existing work
orders. Product build times, lead times and supply and demand
functions are combined to estimate the need for an inventory item.
|Automatic Generation of Work Orders
||If you have the Sage MAS 90 Work Order Processing module
installed, the Auto Generate Work Orders program uses information from MRP Generation to
create or modify work orders for item that have a procurement type of make.
|Action By Vendor Report
||This report groups, by vendor, all actions that have
been recommended by the MRP Generation process. This enables you to have all of the
information you need on a one-phone-call-per-vendor listing.
|MRP By Job Report
||The MRP By Job Report details upcoming requirements for
components on a bill of materials by job (i.e., Sales Order or Work Order). For each
component, you can view the quantities needed, the projected on-hand quantities and
|Inventory Management Integration
||Integration with the Inventory Management module is
required to provide MRP with access to the items needed to distribute or produce finished
goods. The on-hand quantities in inventory are recognized as a part of the
supply of an item during the MRP Generation. The inventory supplies all
reorder information, vendor lead times and product build times to the MRP Generation.
|Purchase Order Processing
||When Purchase Order Processing is integrated with MRP,
the material on a purchase order is recognized as a part of the supply of an
item during the MRP Generation. Items on purchase order form the for the Action By Vendor
|Sales Order Processing Integration
||When Sales Order Processing is integrated with MRP, the
material on a sales order is recognized as part of the demand for an item
during the MRP Generation.
|Bill of Materials
||When Bill of Materials is integrated with MRP, it
supplies the detailed database of components, assemblies and subassemblies for calculating
finished goods versus raw materials. The MRP Generation will disassemble all finished
goods to lowest levels to calculate the various time-phased operations needed, and give
the necessary material requirement information.
||Integration with Work Order Processing is optional, but
is required to automatically update work orders through the MRP process. The Auto Generate
Work Orders program will place or change firm-planned work orders for items. The essence
of the work order and MRP interaction is the work order timing and material
issued/produced by the work order.
