Production Management for Microsoft Dynamics GP

Bill of Materials (BOMs) Module

The Bill of Materials (BOMs) feature within Microsoft Dynamics GP ERP manufacturing solution manages specifications of subassemblies and top-level assemblies of finished goods. Create, analyze, and approve requirements of finished goods with raw material costs rolled into final expenses. The Manufacturing BOM integrates with both the Inventory and Manufacturing Order Processing modules to track labor costs and the production of finished goods and materials. The functionality of BOM can be adjusted to meet quality control standards. 

Microsoft Dynamics GP BOM module effortlessly manages, analyzes, and compares multiple BOM versions. Reduce errors and time spent on manual calculations. Design, update, and approve finished goods packaging. Save time by linking product formulas to finished goods packing configurations. 

Microsoft Dynamics GP ERP software provides the following features in the Manufacturing BOM module:

  • Track Work in Progress (WIP) for materials, machine time, and labor.

  • Enter a fixed or variable quantity on the BOM.

  • Create a link to the item on the BOM with a specific routing sequence.

  • Access multiple BOM types and categories such as Manufacturing, Engineering, Archived, Configured, and Super.

  • Maintain history of BOMs with BOM history.

  • Label a component as an alternate part.

  • Calculate component lead times by date entered on BOM.

  • Automatically update changes to BOMs with the BOM Mass Update feature.

  • Maintain an active BOM for each finished product.

  • Update entries, edit revision levels, save revision histories, and change BOM categories at any time.Create phantom BOMs to track critical components of subassemblies.

Manufacturing Order Processing Module

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2021 ERP solution tracks production costs and manages work orders. The Manufacturing Order Processing module organizes and tracks the daily functions of the manufacturing process such as order taking, raw materials purchasing, building finished goods, and fulfilling orders. 

The integration of sales and production processes within Microsoft Dynamics GP ERP software improves planning and creates flexible, efficient environments. Manage outsourced operations more effectively, control costing, and define operations with the necessary detail according to specific operational needs. Monitor labor and machine capacity, manage worker skills and scheduled hours, and gain views into fixed and variable overhead. Obtain key information on the progress and costs associated with manufacturing orders. 

The Manufacturing Order Process module within Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 ERP software includes the following features:

Manufacturing Orders
  • Precision Production Control defines end production quantities more effectively by taking maximum and minimum quantities into account, providing alerts, and accounting for scrap and shrinkage. 

  • Capacity Requirements Planning provides a view into manufacturing orders to help manage the demand for finished goods.

  • Automated Scheduling automatically calculates start and due dates based on routing.

  • More Efficient Picking streamlines picking operations and improves efficiency by printing picking documents for a range of orders, components, dates, and sites.

  • On-Demand Allocation allocates, issues, and scraps components as needed and reverses operations to place components back into inventory. 

  • Visibility into Component Shortages manages inventory replenishment plans by providing a list of component shortages including details about when items are needed for manufacturing orders. 

  • Detailed Visibility and Management of Orders reverses incorrectly posted manufacturing order receipts and tracks collected labor, machine costs, and backflush levels.

  • Flexible Rescheduling efficiently reschedules batches for sequences in manufacturing orders in response to unforeseen delays.

  • Automated or Direct WIP Data Entry allows work-in-progress data to be directly entered or automatically integrated with other data collection devices. 

  • Improved Collaboration with Outsourced Service Vendors generates purchase orders for outsourced services based on manufacturing orders and precisely tracks shipment details and outsourcing costs. 

  • Serial/Lot Linking links serial or lot-tracked components to finished goods throughout the system for complete traceability.

  • As-Needed Definition defines routings on an as-needed basis. Assign unlimited routes to items to provide alternate routes when capacity is strained.

  • Detailed Instruction Capability attaches detailed notes to each routing sequence for improved accuracy and efficiency.

  • Reusable Sequences allow sequences to be reused within a route to save time and reduce costs.

  • On-Time Routing of Materials ensures that materials are where they are needed when they are needed by linking components from BOMs to specific sequences.

Work Center Management
  • Powerful Outsourcing Management allows all manufacturing orders and purchase orders to be viewed for status. Outsourced vendors can be added or changed anytime during the manufacturing process. 

  • Delayed Resourced Allocation assigns machines and employees to work centers according to capacity and availability. Alternate work centers are assigned to prevent bottlenecks.

  • Tight Schedule Control tracks shifts and hours per shift at each work center to accommodate multiple schedules. 

  • Automated Backflushing automatically sets operations to backflush labor and machine expenses. 

  • Flexible Cost Basing tracks overhead costs of materials, overhead, labor, and outsourcing. 

  • Improved Product Costing automatically applies WIP materials to a receipt, calculates labor costs, and adds completed product into stock for improved visibility into product costs.

  • Standard Cost Changes History provides a complete view of standard cost revaluations, automatically records changes, and offers the ability to generate historical reports.

Quality Assurance Module

The Quality Assurance module within Microsoft Dynamics GP ERP software enables testing designed to determine if the quality of incoming raw materials meets manufacturing requirements. Improve quality assurance with defined processes to optimize and refine testing of incoming raw materials. Implement flexible quality sampling procedures and accurate tracking of destructive testing. Establish step-by-step procedures to reduce manufacturing delays, rework, and scrap. 

Quality Assurance integrates seamlessly with all Microsoft Dynamics GP ERP solution modules providing an efficient and flexible manufacturing environment. Define customized parameters for specific customers and vendors with flexible reporting. Efficiently collaborate with supply chain partners with clear and concise reports.

The Quality Assurance module within Microsoft Dynamics GP ERP 2016 solution includes the following features:

  • Controlled Quality Level Definition designates test specifications according to specific needs, from quality levels to sample sizes, using acceptable quality level (AQL) tables.

  • Destructive Testing Management allows quality tests to be set as destructive” to alert the system that the defective material is unavailable for further production use. 

  • Detailed Reporting of Test Results creates reports summarizing defects discovered during the inspection process with the Non-Standard Report (NSR), issues Supplier Corrective Action Requests (SCARs), and researches the source of the defect to help prevent any recurrences.

  • Flexible Test Definition Information defines quality assurance procedures according to specific needs from single step procedures to complex operations.

  • Improved Access to Critical Data tracks and records detailed information of incoming materials making vital data such as lots, serial numbers, and purchase orders readily available. 

  • Powerful Defect Management tracks, manages, and analyzes defects that are the most common to manufacturing and quality issues. Easily define configuration instructions for inspectors when the defective material is identified.
