SAP Business One for Manufacturing

As a mid-market Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and business management system, SAP Business One includes easy-to-use yet powerful manufacturing capabilities. This is ideal for companies which do not have the internal capacity for advanced manufacturing systems or engage primarily in light manufacturing.

As standard with the SAP Business One, manufacturing companies get:

  • Lot and Serial control
  • Back flushing Capabilities in Production
  • Standard, Template, Special and Disassembly Production Orders
  • Project Cost Tracking
  • Labour Management
  • Multi-Level Bill of Materials
  • Extensive Item Master management
  • Forecasting
  • MRP (Material Requirements Planning)

This functionality can be easily extended through easy configuration & customisation, or through the addition of certified SAP Business One solution extensions and add-ons.
