Webinar 11: Production Scheduling and Execution

July 20, 2017
2:00 PM EDT/11:00 AM PDT

In this webinar, we will demonstrate how Dynamics NAV’s planning tools can be used to schedule production within a manufacturing facility. This will begin with a review of the core tool through which capacities are managed within the system: the routing, which is comprised of one or more machine centers and/or work centers. We will also cover the setup of shop calendars and absence tracking, both of which assist in the capacity planning process. Following this discussion of NAV’s scheduling capabilities, we will conclude with a look at the final stage of production: execution, in which we will present several methods for tracking production output and consumption.

This session will include the following:

  • An Introduction to Machine Centers and Work Centers
  • Routings
  • Shop Calendars and Absence/Holiday Tracking
  • Generating Capacity
  • Execution of Production Orders
  • Output and Consumption

About ERP Unlocked

Learning how to use Dynamics NAV is not particularly difficult; oftentimes it’s as simple as pressing the F1 button and reading the supplied help file. Learning how to use Dynamics NAV to its fullest potential, on the other hand, is a different story. Oftentimes there are multiple ways to obtain the same result in the system, and the question then becomes which is best for your organization. The answer is a bit more difficult than reading a few help files, and requires a level of knowledge that comes only through years of experience with software projects and implementations.

In business for more than 30 years, we at Beck Consulting possess this level of expertise with both Microsoft Dynamics NAV and our own bcERP product. We are confident that we can provide guidance on the optimal way to configure, manage, and work within your ERP environment, and want you our customer to take full advantage of the wisdom we have to offer. That is why we are excited to announce our monthly webinar series ERP Unlocked: Using bcERP with NAV to Effectively Run Your Business.

ERP Unlocked will be more than just a straightforward product demo or by-the-numbers review of every field on every page. Our goal is to present the same scenarios, events, and challenges that you face in your day-to-day operations, then provide you with the best way to address them.

We will begin ERP Unlocked with a 12 part series that addresses every major stage of a manufacturing environment, from beginning to end. Accordingly, our first session will cover the purchasing process. Subsequent sessions will address the receipt of purchased goods, inventory and BOM design, warehouse configuration and movements, sales, production planning and execution, shipping, and how to best handle recalls and returns.
