It’s not uncommon for a small manufacturer to miss, or lose track, of production schedules awaiting materials to speed along completion, particularly when using legacy programs like Excel and contact management software to track vendor commitments.
The key to successful supply chain management (SCM) is having the capability to monitor the complete lifecycle of the product. Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 provides a robust enterprise resource planning (ERP) software with cloud features via Microsoft Azure to provide decision-makers with mobile access for better supply chain management.
Providing real-time data across many departments, users are able to handle their production orders, bills of material, as well as supply planning. In today’s world of made-to-order and made-to-stock demands, Dynamics NAV with Agile Manufacturing facilitates re-routing and last-minute production changes, while providing data on current schedules and tasks to monitor given lines or facility capabilities.
With demand forecasting Dynamics NAV 2017 integrates sales forecasts for products by day, month or quarter, thereby aiding production and purchase order requisitions. A user interface, called the Role Centers, makes sure each job is easily accessible remotely, or on-premise, with reports and follow-ups tailored to specific production cycles, such as Order Promising, Campaign Pricing, Production Bill of Materials, Demand Forecasting, Multi-Currency, Cycle Counting, and Warehouse Shipment.
Creating estimates, tracking projects are key components to effective Project Management (PM). Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 is designed to drill-down on PM specifics with Capacity Management, Multiple Costs, Budgeting, Phases/Tasks/Steps and it’s Job Suite module.
