SAP Business One for Better Control of Production

Leaders of growing businesses understand the importance of maintaining a high level of customer satisfaction. They also value being able to easily track and control their inventory and warehouses. For superior and accurate control of inventory management, owners of manufacturing and wholesale distribution companies implement SAP Business One (also known as Business One and SAP B1) as their enterprise solution. SAP B1 is the fastest selling enterprise resource planning (ERP) system on the market because it helps you to track and record stock movements, manage detailed warehouse data, and plan and release production orders based on your material requirements planning (MRP). The system supports all of your basic needs for production activities by allowing you to efficiently manage bills of materials, material requirements, and production orders.

Easy Management of Your Warehouse(s), Inventory and Production

  • Manage inventories by using different costing models, use multiple units of measure and pricing, and maintain item master data
  • Record goods receipts and issues; enable consignment, drop-ship, and other orders; track stock transfers; perform inventory and cycle counts
  • Maintain multilevel bills of materials, globally maintain prices for BOMs, and issue and release production orders manually or by backflush
  • Efficient up to date reporting- Generate reports with data that is refreshed regularly, and display them in different report formats or as dashboards

Easily Manage Your Bill of Materials (BOMs)

The software makes if simple and easy for you to manage BOMs for assembly, sales, and production. You can easily document the quantity, type, and price of materials needed to manufacture the final products, along with quantity available within the bill of materials. As soon as the BOMs have been defined, production orders can be released. Component costs, availability of materials, and specific requirements are added automatically to your work orders, making sure that allocation of raw materials to products is accurate. You can initiate and effectively track the production process as well as efficiently move the materials used.
