Simplifying the Formulas For Consuming Bulk Vs. Raw Materials

By | January 19th, 2017|ERP, GP, NAV, Process Manufacturing|

New software can simplify formula stages through: the ability to combine both processing steps of a formula into one, contained formula ID reduced clutter from extra formulas streamlined production scheduling compliance document generation How It Works For many process manufacturers, it’s not uncommon to have multiple processing stages needed in order to arrive at the final item(s).  A typical scenario is to first consume raw materials to create WIP, or bulk, which might reside in a container for a period of time.  Then, when it is time to produce the finished goods, the WIP, or bulk, that has been sitting in the container, is then used to make the finished products. Some manufacturing systems will require each of these steps to be assigned to a different formula ID, despite there being many other shared data elements such as quality [...]

Throw an MRP Party to Boost Business

By | November 11th, 2016|AX, Dynamics 365, ERP, GP, NAV, Process Manufacturing|

In process manufacturing, conducting material requirements planning (MRP) is crucial to ensuring on-time shipments, minimizing inventory carrying costs and keeping customers happy. Still, if not given the attention it deserves, it can set a company back and hurt customer service. Companies may carry out their MRP processes using an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system or even by hand. However they do it, there are proven steps they can follow to make MRP an asset to their operation that enhances performance and enables growth. Take out the trash With MRP, it is garbage in, garbage out. From inventory balances to quality control approvals, manufacturers need to be able to trust their numbers. If a listed quantity is incorrect, the MRP system is going to plan around those inaccurate amounts, which will result in useless data. If the inventory value in the ERP [...]

Proposed Cost Entry

By | October 13th, 2016|ERP, GP, Manufacturing, NAV, Process Manufacturing|

For many manufacturers, it’s not uncommon to receive notice from a vendor of upcoming price increases. Prices change, it happens.  As these prices change, companies need to be able to quickly determine the effect on the cost of finished products as it relates to future profitability. From the Proposed Cost Entry window, users can create a Proposed Cost ID where they can enter a new theoretical cost for a purchased ingredient.  It’s important to keep in mind, this does not have to be a comprehensive list of all items – it can simply include as many or little items as needed for this analysis.     Once the items and new proposed costs are entered, users can then use the proposed costs while performing a component cost roll up. Component Cost Rollup The component cost roll [...]

Vicinity Manufacturing: Lot Trace Recall

By | October 11th, 2016|ERP, GP, Manufacturing, NAV, Process Manufacturing|

Products need to be safe for consumers, which is why companies go through rigorous quality testing upon receipt of materials and prior to releasing finished product to the public. In the event of tainted material, manufacturers need to be able to quickly determine who and what has been affected by this item.  Furthermore, to meet the requirements of many compliance agencies, companies will be asked to perform mock recalls where they are graded based on both accuracy and timeliness. For many companies, this can be quite a lengthy process having to sort through stacks of handwritten documents for each production ticket…That mock recall needs to be a quick and accurate process. Using Vicinity Manufacturing with Microsoft Dynamics, companies can perform their mock recalls within minutes. Here we have the option to trace an item upward or downward. The downward trace would take a specific [...]
