MS D365BC is a “comprehensive business management solution”. It was previously known as Microsoft Dynamics Nav (Dynamics Nav) and empowers small & medium-sized businesses (SMB’s) by streamlining their everyday business activities. Moreover, it is easy to configure & enables them to manage their core tasks seamlessly—for instance, Sales, purchasing, inventory, warehouse, planning, production, accounts, etc.

Therefore, in this blog, let us dive deeper & explore Production Functionality of MS D365BC.

Production Order

Production Order is an integral part of the MS D365BC Production Module. It contains information regarding the products, materials, the processes, product quantities, finish date, etc. Moreover, it also comprises data about products that have been manufactured previously & the materials used in them, and so on. Likewise,businesses can create Production orders using information related to production BOM’s, Routings, items, work centres, machine centres, etc. Usually, businesses create Production orders automatically. However, they can also create it manually.

Subcontract Manufacturing

The Production module of MS D365BC  allows businesses to seamlessly manage their subcontracting options. It provides features like work centres with assigned vendors, work centre cost based on unit or time, subcontracting worksheet, etc.As a result, businesses can set up Subcontract Work Centers like the regular work centre but require additional details. Further, they can  specify a Work Center on a routing operation. Similarly, they can also  designate the cost of the  process both at the routing or the work centre level.

Similarly, with MS D365BC businesses can stipulate whether the costs related to the work center are based on a flat charge per unit or the production time. Moreover, MS D365BC, allows businesses to quickly locate the Production Order with material ready for sending to a subcontractor. By using Production order routings, they can automatically create purchase orders for subcontracting operations. Not only this, but they can also automatically post the purchase order charges to the production order during the posting of the purchase order. However, “only production orders with a status of release can be accessed & used from a subcontracting worksheet.”

Post Consumption & Output for one released Production order line

The production module of  MS D365BC provides features like Production Journal Page. It comprises both the consumption journal & the output journal. Moreover, businesses can access it directly from the released production order. Production Journal helps businesses manually post the consumption of components, the number of end items produced, and the time spent in operations. In addition, businesses can post Consumption quantities as negative item ledger entries, output quantities as positive ledger entries, etc.
