More about SAP Business One

Project management: the crucial factor for manufacturing companies

Within the manufacturing industry, it is a requirement to meticulously coordinate bills of materials, production and delivery of semi-finished products. This requires detailed and correct project planning.

To maintain your market position, nothing should stand in the way of on-time assembly. Monitoring budgets, lead times and delivery times are therefore crucial for project control.

Insight into processes and stock, fast and flexible action

Purchasing and inventory control are key elements in your process. If you want to stand out within the manufacturing industry, you need to be fast, flexible and innovative.

For this, you need insight into your processes and inventory. With SAP Business One, you have real-time insight into costs, inventories, planned work and order status. Precisely this information helps you stay ahead in your industry.

Standard features in SAP Business One for the manufacturing industry


Material Requirements Planning – MRP

With the powerful material requirement planning in SAP Business One, you plan the production or procurement of items based on a variety of selection criteria. This forecasting function efficiently predicts your demand for a particular item. This eliminates the need to maintain high stock levels.

You can run planning scenarios for an article series or article groups. Numerous detail options allow you to view calculations and various visual queries. This allows you to immediately see which order(s) need to be executed urgently.


Production orders

Your planners can create production orders and purchase orders automatically in SAP Business One. Converting a production order into a purchase order thus happens immediately when a customer order is confirmed.

As parts lists are linked in SAP Business One, the required resources are automatically calculated and listed on the production order.

Several purchase orders for the same supplier are merged into one order. This also streamlines your procurement process from start to finish.


Parts lists

Your parts list shows material, labour and machine hours to realise your production order. You will always find the parts, sub-parts and raw materials needed to assemble a finished product or article.

For complex articles, parts lists consist of several levels so that individual parts lists are also available for parts.


Master data per article

With this functionality, you define stock items from production or procurement, or resources that cannot be kept in stock (such as labour, travel and fixed assets).

It is also possible to manage standard information about an item: its supplier, unit of measure for purchase and sale, tax status and more. Stock items can also be stored in multiple warehouses.


Stock and distribution

With SAP Business One’s inventory functions, you accurately manage incoming and outgoing deliveries, master data per item and price lists.

You can also define alternative items, adjust stock numbers, revalue stock costs based on current market values, perform periodic counts and create pick lists for open customer orders.
