Manufacturing with dynamics NAV

Have you linked your critical business systems together to maximise margins and manufacturing controls?Have you done this across many software applications or just one?

With Manufacturing in Microsoft Dynamics NAV, you can streamline manufacturing processes and adapt quickly to changing demands to give your customers what they want, when they want it.

Manufacturing - screen

View current production order status, pick and putaway inventory lists, and KPIs, such as sales and profit margins - all on one screen.

Role Centres in Microsoft Dynamics NAV give you quick access to the tasks, data and reports that are relevant to your job. Enhance operational efficiency and effectively manage production with quick access to production orders, bills of material (BOMs), supply planning, and capacity requirements planning.

Take advantage of a simplified manufacturing foundation that includes rapid visibility into work in progress (WIP) status and support for order-by-order work flows. You can personalise your Role Centre based on business needs and monitor critical business processes in a dashboard view.

You can also gain greater insight with powerful business intelligence capabilities that include a wide range of analytical and reporting tools.


View key performance indicators (KPIs), such as comparing forecasted demand with sales, or use ad-hoc reporting to gain a real-time view of shop floor workloads and then share that data, for example by using Microsoft Office Excel.

With the Report Designer in Microsoft Visual Studio, you can quickly create intuitive reports to share with multiple teams.

What do Clients say about Dynamics NAV …

We can better align our inventory with demand, which lets us reduce our stock levels for some categories by as much as 30 percent and reinvest those resources in products that are selling well.
