Microsoft Dynamics NAV Manufacturing offers a simplified foundation that includes visibility into work-in-process (WIP), support for order-by-order workflow, and the ability to implement additional functionality as business needs become more complex.
Improve coordination of made-to-order requests and simplify make-or-buy decisions. Modify components and operations as needed, even on released production orders. Plan product family orders that share the same routing to create efficient build schedules.
Tightly integrate different types of BOMs and customized definitions into manufacturing operations to improve performance while supporting time-to-market and time-to-volume objectives. Create, track, and process multiple versions of BOMs and routings.
Access an overview of production schedules displayed in Gantt charts and use drag-anddrop functionality to reschedule operations. Changes are reflected in the relevant production order.
Help promise orders more accurately with available-to-promise (ATP) and capable-topromise (CTP) insight.
Action messaging, tracking, and multiple planning options enable you to quickly make exceptions and last-minute changes to meet customer needs.
Plan from the sales order, production order, or purchase requisition, or use traditional master production schedule (MPS) or material requirements planning (MRP) methods. Facilitate materials flow through the supply chain with multi-location planning capabilities. Update and change all materials, costs, and operations simultaneously.
Analyze sales patterns from multiple perspectives. Compare forecasted demand with actual sales and consolidate and distribute demand plans with multiple stakeholders to increase collaborative planning.
An alternative to printed production schedules for smaller businesses, the Manual Planning tool eliminates the complexity of a full MRP system with a simple supply planning tool that enables your production manager to make planning decisions on an order-by-order basis.
Implement realistic plans according to all incoming resource capacity demands. Redefine order modifiers and reorder policies as needed. Accommodate changing shop floor workloads and simplify planning with calendars and machine center allocation tools.
Allocate work and machine centers as capacities to streamline planning. Apply finite loading calculations to capacity-constrained resources to optimize machine centers and increase planning accuracy.
Tightly integrate manufacturing and warehousing functionality to help you optimize warehouse layout and space utilization and maintain up-to-date inventory information.
Understand item costs throughout the production process—including inventory, WIP, and cost of goods sold (COGS)—to help efficiently manage sales and purchase prices with customers and vendors.
Collect and use accurate inventory data in real time and increase the visibility of accurate inventory data throughout your business to improve warehouse efficiency
