Module 6: Subcontracting
Subcontracting is a strategic decision in many manufacturing companies. Subcontracting is defined as a vendor performing one or more operational steps in the production process. Subcontracting can either be a rare occurrence or an integral part of all production activities, depending on the company.
This module focuses on the different aspects of the subcontracting process from setting up the subcontractor and routing to the daily work routines in the system connected to using the subcontractor.
  • Subcontracting
Lab : Subcontracting
  • Subcontracting
  • Add a Subcontractor to a Routing

  • Determine when a Purchase Order is related to a Production Order.
  • Determine the status of Subcontractor Operations on Released Production Orders. 
Module 7: Advanced Capacity
Advanced Capacity examines the capacity setup needed to run production planning with constrained resources. Planning with constrained resources is needed when bottlenecks appear in the production environment.
First, the work center group, work center, and machine hierarchy are set up. Then the connected work calendars are defined. Finally, the use of the capacity journals for capacity planning is described in detail. The capacity planning can be seen as the possibility to make a "shop supervisor overview" for the manager responsible for the production.

Module 8: Shop Loading
Shop Loading refers to the daily shop floor operations. It is important when scheduling in a production environment with limited capacity and bottleneck resources.
This chapter provides an overview of how shop loading is carried out in Microsoft Dynamics NAV. It shows how to perform loading of capacities using the traditional work center or machine center load windows, and how to execute finite loading for constrained resources. Additionally, the module examines other reports available for capacity scheduling.

Module 9: Additional Manufacturing Topics
This module contains additional manufacturing topics that are only used in some companies. The first lesson contains a description of the standard task codes feature, which can be used to display additional information on the printed routings on the production floor. Some companies need to report scrap and define planned non-productive operation time; other companies need to reduce lead time by scheduling parallel routings or operate in a multi-level production environment; others again, for example in the pharmaceutical business, need to set up serial and lot numbers to track goods from raw material to end customers.
  • Standard Task Codes
  • Stop Codes
  • Scrap Codes
