Whether you implement basic or agile manufacturing, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central/NAV is there to support you. Create a standard bill of materials (BOM), or easily customize it to a specific job. As soon as a BOM is created, Business Central/NAV is updated ensuring accurate supply planning and demand forecasting. Automatic production and purchase orders can be configured within Business Central/NAV to keep supply in balance with demand.


Capacity planning is another great feature of Dynamics 365 Business Central/NAV. Capacity planning allows you to route specific production orders, and plan on material requirements. Each capacity’s task list and loading is easily viewable, and automatically connected to the finite loading tool. Finite loading makes sure no more work is assigned to a work center that is at capacity, and enables the calculation of capable-to-promise (CTP).


There’s no denying that the U.S. manufacturing sector suffered a severe downturn. However, there’s also clear evidence that the sector is slowly but surely rebounding.
