Microsoft Dynamics NAV – Manufacturing Solutions

With manufacturing in Dynamics NAV, you can streamline manufacturing processes and adapt quickly to changing demands to give customers what they want, when they want it.

Overview | Supply Chain Management | Inventory Management | Warehouse Management

Bills of Material

  • Create multiple versions of Bills of Materials (BOMs) and calculate standard costs
  • Tightly integrate different types of BOMs and customized definitions in manufacturing operations

Cost Budgeting

  • Understand item costs throughout the production process, including inventory, WIP, and cost of goods sold (COGS)

Exceptions Handling

  • Make exceptions and last-minute changes to meet customer needs

Production Orders

  • Create and manage production orders
  • Post consumption and output to the production orders
  • Calculate net requirements based on that production order

Supply Planning

  • Plan material requirements based on demand
  • Automate production orders and purchase orders
  • Support for bucket-less and bucketed material requirements planning (MRP)

Demand Forecasting

  • Manage demand forecasting based on items
  • Input demand (sales) forecasts for products and components daily, monthly, or quarterly

Sales & Inventory Forecasting

  • Gain deep insights about potential sales
  • Get clear overview of expected stock-outs

Capacity Planning

  • Add capacities (work centers) to the manufacturing process
  • Set up routings and use them on production orders and in material requirements planning (MRP)

Finite Loading

  • Manage finite loading of capacity-constraint resources
  • Enable the system to calculate capable-to-promise (CTP)

Machine Centers

  • Add machine centers as capacities to the manufacturing process
  • Plan/manage capacity on detailed level for machine centers and consolidated levels for work centers

Make-to-Order Manufacturing

When your Dynamics NAV system includes Progressus Software (Projects), make-to-order and engineer-to-order manufacturers can perform full project accounting.
