Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central/NAV Manufacturing Sessions at User Group Summit 2019

People sat listening to a guy talking at  conference like User Group Summit

It’s almost time for User Group Summit 2019 and the excitement is building. Many of our team members and clients will be attending. And they’re all scouring the agenda to figure out which they want to attend. It’s challenging because there are so many sessions that sound great.

I’m Andrew Good, President, and CEO at Liberty Grove Software, where a sizeable number of our clients are in the manufacturing space. So, I’ve taken the liberty (pun intended!) of listing our top recommendations for BC/NAV manufacturing sessions that are being presented by other Dynamics partners who have value-added insights to share.

My top 3 session picks in the BCUG/NAVUG Manufacturing category

Summit Session ID: MFG63 Title: Get Started Today with MRP

Presenting Partner: Accent Software, Inc. Date: Wednesday, October 16, 2019 Time: 4:30-5:30 PM CPE Credit: 1 Brief Description: One of the most underutilized aspects of Dynamics 365 BC/NAV is the power of the Planning Worksheet for calculating the Master Production Schedule (MPS) and Material Requirements Planning (MRP). This session is designed to give you enough information to start utilizing this amazing tool. Most companies experience a high ROI from implementing this out-of-the-box Worksheet.

Summit Session ID: MFG59 Title: Do You Need a Manufacturing Add-on or is Core NAV Enough?

Presenting Partner: Accent Software, Inc.

Date: Thursday, October 17, 2019 Time: 10:45-11:45 AM CPE Credit: 1 Brief Description: Learn the depth of manufacturing functionality available out-of-the-box with BC/NAV. This session will highlight the manufacturing capabilities available so you can avoid reinventing the wheel. We’ll cover what BC/NAV does well, what it does all right, where it leaves off and where a third-party add-on solution would pick up.

Summit Session ID: MFG57 Title: Lessons Learned from a Successful WMS Implementation

Presenting Partner and Customer: LIDD and Garner Foods

Date: Friday, October 18, 2019 Time: 9:45-10:45 AM CPE Credit: 1 Brief Description: This session shares a case study from community member Garner Foods, about their WMS implementation in their food manufacturing facility. It's a great opportunity to hear the inside story of why they decided to take on this challenge, what their approach was, lessons learned, and the benefits and surprises they've seen.


Now that I’ve shared the above recommendations with you, I’d also like to tell you about the three manufacturing sessions where I will be presenting.
