With Industry Software for Discrete Manufacturing you can plan, calculate, configure and build complex Products with the complete transparency of all stages of the process.
Companies in the manufacturing industry today face major challenges: Increased national and international competition, high raw material and energy costs, state regulation and the speed of technological progress require a willingness to innovate and an ability to make optimal use of the resources available. The production component of Microsoft Dynamics NAV (formerly Navision) helps you to plan capacity precisely, to direct production processes flexibly and in detail and to apply your production resources efficiently. Thus, not only can you reduce production costs, you can also respond to the needs of your customers faster and more reliably. The system provides the following functionalities:
The manufacturing module integrated in Microsoft Dynamics NAV manages all of your important production processes and incorporates special features of make-to-order, series and process manufacturers. The module helps you to accurately plan, track and report back on production orders. Create your production orders directly from sales orders or work with planning proposals that the system automatically generates on the basis of stock, requirements and scheduling parameters.
Assembly orders allow small and medium-sized enterprises with a low vertical range of manufacture to carry out MRP and capacity planning with flexibility and minimal configuration effort. This means that you can simplify your order processing and you are in a position to adjust your orders to specific customer needs and to assemble items on a make-to-order basis — all at the click of a mouse.
Especially for complex production processes, it is helpful when graphic representations ensure an improved overview and better control. Microsoft Dynamics NAV presents you with important production factors such as production orders, sequences and material availability by means of a graphic wall chart. This allows you to see critical workloads at a glance and reschedule via drag and drop, displaying the results directly in the production order.
