Production automation on the basis of Microsoft Dynamics Nav (ex. Navision) and Microsoft Dynamics Ax (ex. Axapta) consists of the following features:
Terms The detailed routing of production process. Standardization of terms
Formulation Detailed formulation provides normalized raw material and semi-finished product consumption
Planning Connection of consumed components with production route allows clearly identifying terms (date and time) necessary for resources usage. Based on information gathered on sales volume and production plans there is a possibility to make out production schedule, to allocate production resources, to determine production needs and to balance raw material lack by tender for the supply from suppliers and for internal logistics as well, in order to dislocate semi-made products among production departments just in time.
Optimization Increase of stock rotation. Decrease of volume of stocks on the ground. Decrease of financial resources withdrawn from circulation
Prime cost Immediate/automatic calculation of production prime cost.
Working process Boost of a work task creation and collection of reports per shift. Usage of data collection terminals allows significantly speed up process of production reporting creation, e.g. reports per shift, immediate reporting of consumed/produced components
Reporting Immediate disclosure on current production orders in all management reports. Automation of management reports creation.
