In August, Sage announced the release of three new Sage 100 modules to support distributors and manufacturers, including Inventory Requirements Planning, Shop Floor, and Manufacturing Mobility for Barcode.

Inventory Requirements Planning

The Inventory Requirements Planning (IRP) module for Sage 100 and Sage 100cloud is the on-framework replacement for Material Requirements Planning (MRP).

In addition to delivering the same features and functions of the legacy MRP module, IRP incudes additional capabilities including (but not limited to):

  • Generate recommended purchase and production item quantities using cut-off dates and lead times.
  • Edit the recommended quantity, vendor, and unit price for items to be purchased, and then click a button to create the purchase orders.
  • Edit recommended make quantities for items to be produced, and then click a button to create the work tickets (Sage Production Management is required to create work tickets)

Shop Floor

Shop Floor is an extension for Sage Production Management that makes data collection easier by providing mobile access to transactional tasks in Sage Production Management (you may recall that earlier this year, Sage Production Management was released as a replacement for the legacy Sage 100 Work Order module).

Created specifically for shop floor personnel, the app provides a user-friendly visual front end to Sage Production Management, accessible via desktop or mobile device.

Manufacturing Mobility for Barcode

Manufacturing Mobility for Barcode is an integration component that connects the Shop Floor extension for Sage Production Management to Sage 100.

You must have Manufacturing Mobility for Barcode installed on your system in order to extend Shop Floor to your warehouse personnel.


These three new modules—Inventory Requirements Planning (IRP), Shop Floor, and Manufacturing Mobility for Barcode—are now available for both Sage 100 and Sage 100cloud.
