MISys Manufacturing software offers all the functionality a small to medium-sized Sage 50 Canadian Edition manufacturing firm needs today.

When "good enough" isn't good enough, you need better. MISys Manufacturing software transforms Sage 50 - Simply Accounting into an Industrial-Strength Manufacturing System.

Here are the top 10 reasons why manufacturers add MISys Manufacturing software:

  • Track inventory in work-in-process. Other systems will help track your inventory. MISys is designed to help control your inventory.

    - Forecast inventory based on history, lead times, vendor performance.
    - Maintain accurate minimum order levels for "just in case" scenarios.
    - Let the system order only what you need, when you need it.
  • Link multiple suppliers to a single inventory item
  • Track serialized components
  • Explode multi-level bills of material
  • Track BOM revisions
  • Track job costs for manufacturing jobs
  • Use Standard Costing for inventory
  • Schedule production effectively to meet customer deadlines
  • Schedule purchasing to buy only what is needed, WHEN it is needed.
  • Track production on the shop floor.

How Does it Work?

Use Simply to manage the "front of the house", everything that is customer-facing: customer records, sales orders, sales inventory, accounts receivable, accounts payable, general ledger, etc. Use MISys Manufacturing software to manage the "back of the house," everything related to manufacturing: bills of material, raw material inventory, production scheduling, purchasing, etc. MISys maintains a subledger of all of the manufacturing costs and syncs with Simply. The transactions are fully auditable and are done automatically - no double data entry is required.

MISys Manufacturing software is a modular system. Start with the Basic Manufacturing Module and add functionality when you need it:

  • Basic Manufacturing This is the comprehensive building block for the modular MISys Manufacturing system.

  • Advanced Production - Predict the cost of every job and track performance as manufacturing orders for standard assemblies or special one-off items move through the shop.
  • Material Requirements Planning - Determine purchasing and production needs by analyzing current inventory, open orders and sales orders to spot impending shortages and respond by creating purchase and production orders.
  • Shop Floor Control - Accurately predict production costs based on estimated material, labor, and overhead, and then analyze the actual production costs.
  • Serial/Lot Tracking - Track serial or lot numbers throughout the entire purchasing and production process to comply with strict regulatory agency requirements, including FDA and FAA.
