When a company becomes aware of new demand for its products, it must do the following:
Make sure that it obtains the necessary supply of raw material and component subassemblies to meet the demand. Notify production personnel. Microsoft Dynamics NAV lets you achieve both goals by using one or more of the following three methods:
Create a production order directly from a sales order. In the program, this is known as sales order planning, and is described in the Sales Order Planning lesson.
Use the order planning functionality to create production orders directly for different types of demand, such as sales, production, service, and so on. This planning occurs for one level of the bill of materials, BOM at a time, and has many other limitations. Order planning is described in the Order Planning lesson.
Use the planning worksheet to calculate a full regenerative or net change plan by using all demand and supply information that is available to the planning system. The planning worksheet is described in Planning and Additional Planning Topics in this training material.

Module 10: Forecasting and Planning
To successfully manage their business, many companies forecast future demand and plan their activities accordingly. In some cases, where the lead time for a product exceeds the delivery expectations of customers, an accurate forecast is the only way to successfully plan for the future.
However, forecasting is not an easy task. An overly optimistic forecast can lead to excess inventory. Too pessimistic a forecast can lead to late deliveries or even lost sales, and will almost certainly lead to customer dissatisfaction.
For manufacturing companies, it is important not only to be able to forecast sales, but also to plan how to fulfill those sales. For companies that operate in fast-changing markets, it is equally important to Reconcile forecasts to actual sales, Adjust forecasts on the fly, if necessary and Quickly adjust production plans to changed forecasts.

Module 14: Advanced Capacity
Advanced Capacity examines the capacity setup that is required to run production planning with constrained resources. You plan with constrained resources when bottlenecks appear in the production environment.
First, set up the work center group, work center, and machine center hierarchy. Then define the shop calendars and capacity calendars. This establishes the base capacity for each work center or machine center.
Next, register planned absences for each facility. This helps the program calculate accurate capacity calendars for each facility. Finally, you consume capacity through either posting of production order operations, or directly to facilities through entries in the capacity journal.

Module 15: Shop Loading
When you create work centers and machine centers in Microsoft Dynamics NAV, you define a company’s manufacturing capacity. Suppose that a company has a machine center that performs the final assembly of products. If that machine center operates five days a week for 10 hours a day at one hundred percent efficiency, then the company has a capacity of 50 hours a week for final assembly.
When you plan or schedule a production order for manufacturing, you create demand for the work centers and machine centers that are required to process that production order. For example, if you release a production order that requires 30 hours of final assembly work, that production order represents 30 hours of demand for the machine center that performs the final assembly task.
When you compare demand to capacity for a work center or machine center, you measure the load for that production facility. For example, when you schedule 30 hours of work in a week for a machine center that has a capacity of 50 hours, that machine center has a load of 60 percent for that week.
