Experts in Manufacturing Software Solutions
Dynamics Consultants are experts in Manufacturing, utilising Microsoft Dynamics® NAV with a full range of manufacturing tools, providing Manufacturing Process Soltuions (MPS) and Material Requirements Planning (MRP) integrated with the back-office business management software solution.
The Dynamics NAV solution provides a range of benefits, including:
- Simplify Manufacturing processes
- Increased operational efficiency
- Agile to demands
- Improve your bottom line
Microsoft Dynamics NAV, has a full suite of tools to allow you to manage your manufacturing requirements.
Production Bill of Materials (BOM)
Create a bill of materials and calculate standard costs from item records. Fully integrated with the finance modules, a BOM will automatically bring in the updated price to quotes and invoices based on the individual items, as well as update the stock levels.
Production Order Management
Create and manage production orders, posting consumption and output against the production orders. Calculate the net requirements based on the production order and use the manual supply planning and automatic planning tools. The order planning window provides the visibility and tools you need to manually plan for demand from sales lines.
Respond quickly to customer requirements and market changes, while controlling the costs and quality by utilising the Agile Manufacturing, Supply Planning and Capacity Planning modules. With version management you can create and manage different versions of the manufacturing Bill of Materials (BOM) and routings.
Supply Chain Planning (SCP)
Fulfil the requirements of your demand by managing the supply chain, automating the creation of documents such as purchase orders (PO).
Basic Supply Planning
Material requirements planning has never been easier with this module including support for master production scheduling and materials requirements planning. This module provides:
- Support for master production scheduling
- Materials requirements planning
- Automatic production orders, purchase orders and transfer orders
- Action messages for supply and demand
- Bucket-less and bucketed material requirements planning
- Item level reordering policy, including internal or third party manufacture
Easily manage demand forecasting based on items, demand, sales, forecasts for products and components in a more convenient way (daily, monthly, quarterly). This data allows the system to plan and create production and purchase orders taking into consideration the demand forecast together with the level of available inventory and parameters of requirement planning.
Capacity Requirements Production Planning
Meet customer requirements whilst adapting to changing demands using a range of capacity planning tools and simplify the process of production planning.
Basic Capacity Planning
Set up work and machine centres with routings on production orders to the manufacturing process. The system allows you to set up routings and use them on productions orders and in master production scheduling, as well as viewing loads and task lists for the work and machine centres to determine whether they are overloaded.
Manage finite loading of capacity-constrained resources to prevent overloading of resources in definable limits for a given time period. Used in conjunction with Order Promising, finite loading can calculate capable-to-promise (CTP) figures.
Work Centres are made up of a consolidation of detailed work centres. This allows you to plan/manage capacity, both at detailed and high levels. This functionality allows you to store default information such as setup time and scrap percentage.
Graphical Production Scheduling
Fully optimise the work load with constraint-based finite-capacity scheduling using the fully integrated automatic production scheduler.
Load balancing optimization with a list of useable work or machine centres combined with graphical and interactive schedules allow you to plan your production scheduling quickly and efficiently, whilst maintaining a high level of flexibility.
Configurable visual markers allow you to fully visualise the workload. To find out more see the Production Scheduler page.
