Catch Weight Manufacturing in Sage Enterprise Management

By | July 11, 2018

In Food Manufacturing Industries, the actual catch weight of finished good may vary in weight in each of the production either when production is completed or in each process i.e. routings of production.

To achieve this in Sage Enterprise Management, we have added the catch weight management add-on in the manufacturing module i.e. on the Production tracking to define catch weight for finished goods.

For example, suppose you have a finished good as ‘Chicken meat’ which has catch weight UOM as KG and catch-stock conversion is defined as 0.2

  1. Then to produce this product you will need chickens as raw material which is processed in routings such as slaughtering, cleaning, chilling and packaging.
  2. So you can see its BOM where these 3 routings are defined.
