Sage 50 Bill of Material assembly sub-assembly work ticket build

Sage 50 Bill of Material

Sage 50 Bill of Material

I wanted to provide you with the process below which I think will help clarify how Sage 50 assemblies work. Hopefully this will be enough information to test thru the process with me or your team. The reason for my suggesting you walk thru this is to see the effort required to manage multiple level bill of materials.

When using multiple level bill of materials Sage 50 does not have the capacity to help you manage processes like scheduling, timing of demands for inventory items or shop floor routing and scanning capabilities. I bring these points up to confirm whether or not you might need those now or in the future to help your day to day operations become more efficient.

Sage 50 Bill of Material by Sage Software

Sage 50 can do multiple level bill of materials. Most often the challenge is that each sub assembly needs to be completed One at a time Before the final assembly can be completed and invoiced. Sage 50 does not have a back flush feature to allow

You to have clients request a delivery date and then manage the purchase order or build process to calculate the needed start date.

That said Sage 100 will step up to those needs. I can get a demo set up for this application so you can see the difference. The only conflict I am aware of in running Sage 50 and Sage 100 on the same serve is a potential conflict in the versions Of crystal reporting.

Discovery

Once we have a discovery call on Sage 100, I can then pull together pricing. If you wish I can get this on our schedule and we can offer estimates of conversion. We have migrated many clients in similar positions.

Yes, you can have some folks on Sage 50 and Some on Sage 100. A Consideration would be consolidated financials If you are doing that now using Sage 50 consolidated financials. That said Sage Intelligence may be able to provide this with a bit of setup. During the initial discussion we can him his opinion of Sage Intacct which may be Another option.

Let me know how you want to proceed. I am here to help. 800.475.1047

This is the process To set up inventory items

Set up all raw materials as inventory item class “stock”

Example of stock item is PTWheel-6

Set up all sub-assemblies as inventory item class “assembly”

Example of sub-assembly is PTHANDLE-ASM

Set up finished item – as inventory item class ‘assembly”

the components could be raw materials and/or sub-assemblies

Example of finished item is Red Lawn Mower

Item ID Item Description Qty Needed Qty on Hand Est Cost
Red Lawn Mower Red 18″ Reel Mower w/Tracking
. PTHANDLE-ASM 4′ Handle Assembly 1.00
. . PTHANDLE-BENT4 Handle – 4 ft bent 2.00 150.00 13.18
. . PTBOLT-1.5 Hex bolt 1.5″ 4.00 1,280.00 1.32

Red Lawn Mower Total  Cost 103.24

In this example the highlighted items in orange are the sub-assemblies – this is the report found at

Reports – inventory – bill of materials

In the items that are sub-assemblies or final assemblies there is an option on the bill of materials file tab

Which allows you to include or exclude the component items from the customer orders.

Sage 50 Bill of Material – the process to build your finished items

You can build using one of two available methods

  • Option a. Assembly Build
    • Found under tasks – Assemblies
  • Option b. Work Tickets
    • Found under tasks Work Tickets

Either of these you would need to

Step 1. Build the sub-assemblies one at a time using assemblies or work tickets

Step 2. Build the final product

This build of the final product is the step that rolls up all costs

The thing I like about work tickets is you have a printable document

Where you can add some steps to help identify the process and give direction

Then when the build is complete a document that can be provided to the front

Office to complete paperwork and invoicing

Then when you ship/invoice the final product you would have

  • Reports by customer
  • By item
  • Sales
  • Cost of Sales
  • Profitability

The only item needed on the sales order or invoice is the finished item

+ any misc. items you may wish to include

I would recommend

As in any product you not allow the inventory to have quantities on hand

Go into a negative level.

What is a Sage 50cloud Barcode?

Typically printed on a label to identify a Sage 50 inventory item. A barcode is a method of representing part numbers / SKU data in a visual, machine-readable form. Barcodes represent characters of data by varying the widths and spacing of parallel lines. These barcodes, now commonly referred to as linear or one-dimensional, can be scanned by special optical scanners, called barcode readers.

What are barcode readers?

A barcode reader (or barcode scanner) is an optical scanner that can read printed barcodes, decode the data contained in the barcode. These can be directly attached to a hardware device, a rugged handheld scanning device and today smart phones.

What are UPC codes?

UPC codes are also knows as bar codes, but are issued by a central authority for a fee, and are thus unique in all the world.  If you’re not selling through a retail chain, you don’t need them.

Why is a barcode different from a POS software?

This is where you get into the POS software:  UPC codes must be ‘mapped’ to an internal or external stock number.  The UPC code may be similar, completely different, or nonexistent, for any given SKU.

There’s no mapping system built into Sage 50.  There’s an internal item ID, a 52-character part code, and a description.  The part code is search-able, but only from the beginning of the code.  The description is searchable on any character.  There a 5, 100 character ‘user’ fields in which you can put any data you like, but you can’t access any of that data from any invoice data entry screen.

Some Sage 50 inventory item numbers may be set up with the UPC, like “123456789 Scooby Doo Lunch Box”, or may have descriptions that contain the UPC, like “Scooby Doo Lunch Box 123456789”.   Once that’s all set up, you can program your bar code reader for the appropriate number of [TAB] entries to get it to the right place on screen.

Sage 50cloud Barcode Scanners

If you use a directly attached scanner you can plug it in to your hardware and scan a few bar codes in the item maintenance window, while adding lines to a sales order or purchase order. Most Barcode “Wedge” scanners do not have to be configured.  They have computer chip in them that decodes just about any barcode they come across.  Some are programmable, so that when you pull the trigger and they pick up a valid bar code, they will send (for example) [enter] [tab] <the ascii text in the barcode> [tab] [tab] to the program being used.

There are many different formats of bar code.  One of the easiest ways to print barcodes, is to use a “3 of 9” font in Windows.  (sometimes called Code 39).  There’s no checksum to calculate and print, all you need to do is put an asterisk (*) character at the beginning and end of the text that you want to encode.  (Obviously, you can’t use the asterisk as part of any barcodes). Requires an asterisk at the beginning and end of the ASCII text.   It’s start / stop codes are easy to add (i.e. in Excel)

Most barcodes have a start / stop code, and / or a Checksum.  The start / stop code is how the bar code reader knows it just saw the whole barcode.  The Checksum is how the reader knows it saw it correctly. Code 39 uses only a start / stop code.   Code 128 uses both.

What is Sage 50 Barcode Code 39?

Code 39 is a variable length, discrete barcode symbology. Code 39 uses characters that are displayed in this example it’s “=Concatenate(“*”,A1,”*”).  The Code 39 specification defines 43 characters, consisting of uppercase letters, numeric digits and a number of special characters. An additional character is used for both start and stop delimiters.

Code 39 is a bit more prone to misreads, since there is no checksum.  (but still less prone to error than manually entering these item ID’s. If you are looking at using Code 39 AND picking up UPC-A codes then the part number will need to be the UPC number unless your scanner can interpret both.

More about Code 39 can be found:   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Code_39. Sage 50 scanner

What is Sage 50 Barcode Code 128?

Code 128 is a high-density linear barcode symbology defined in ISO/IEC 15417:2007. It is used for alphanumeric or numeric-only barcodes. It can encode all 128 characters of ASCII and, by use of an extension symbol, the Latin-1 characters defined in ISO/IEC 8859-1.

Code 128 Requires a ‘Check Digit’ calculation included in the barcode. Also uses encoded start / stop codes that aren’t the same as each other. It is possible to have a scanner use UPC-A codes as long as the inventory item numbers are the UPC-A numbers unless your scanner can interpret both.

More about Code 128 can be found: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Code_128 . scanner sage 50

Once the variance report is generated and reviewed inventory adjustments are sent to Sage 50. As a result, the Sage 50 quantity on hand will agree with the actual physical count.

Print Sage 50 barcode labels for one, multiple or all of your inventory items

If you are a Sage 50 user this is a familiar window showing the inventory item list. You simply launch a barcode label generator and define which items you want to print barcode labels for.

The EzScanIt barcode label printing module can print most barcode label sizes. You can print multiple labels for a single item, print multiple item labels or you can print barcode labels for all your inventory items.

We hope this helps you understand the EzScanIt Sage 50 barcode label print program. For more information give us a call Accounting Business Solutions 800.475.1047 or visit www.jcscomputer.com. We look forward to speaking with you soon.
