Powerful Manufacturing Management in the Cloud - with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central

If you are manufacturing goods, either by purchase items or semi-produced items from your inventory and do any kind of assembly or work on your products, that would be considered manufacturing. Your business needs specialised software to capture all the processes accurately – and many times it can only be found as a lone-standing product. With Microsoft Dynamics Business Central 365, it is part and parcel with your Business Management Software, ad it is hosted in the cloud.

With Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central you can integrate, streamline, and manage every aspect of your business management and manufacturing process including planning, scheduling, inventory, distribution and financial management. This ensures that companies can respond quickly to new and changing demands and being able to give customers what they want and when they want it.

The Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Manufacturing suite includes:

  • Agile Manufacturing
  • Capacity Planning
  • Demand Forecasting
  • Finite Loading
  • Machine Centre Management
  • Production Bill of Materials
  • Production Order Management
  • Production Scheduling
  • Supply Planning
  • Version Management

Manufacturing companies utilise the core sales, stock and purchasing features to buy and sell finished items but the manufacturing module provides the additional control to consume raw materials, manage differing machine or human activities before outputting finished items.

The bill of materials and routing mechanisms support an MRP process and production orders (forecasted, planned and firm) are created to consume components. Back or forward flushing is available as well as discrete issuing of materials. Features such as scrap management and sub contractor manufacture are also integrated parts of the manufacturing module.

In case you need to create finished items from components but find that the manufacturing modules are too complex, Dynamics 365 Business Central provides a neat kitting module. This allows for the simple creation of an assembly order, which removes the components from stock and creates finished items in one easy process!
