Light Manufacturing and Advanced Kitting
Is your production process relatively simple? Do you distribute products and have a need for advanced kitting functions? If so, then the Sage 500 ERP Light Manufacturing module is the perfect product to help you manage production and kit assembly without complicated labor transactions or material issues.
Light Manufacturing allows distributors, assemble-to-order industries, and other light manufacturers to concentrate on other critical business issues without getting tied up in complex manufacturing processes.
Light Manufacturing provides an easy-to-use Production Entry screen where finished goods are reported after the fact. This single point of entry eliminates dozens of potential labor and production transactions by automatically issuing material quantities, outside process transactions, and labor time to finished goods.
Distributors can identify labor as part of the kitting process. This dramatically improves product costing, subsequent pricing, and the kitting procedure.
Optional modules, such as Estimating, Product Configurator, Engineering Change Management, Project Accounting, and Material Requirements Planning can be used with Light Manufacturing.
