The demand for efficiency in manufacturing is no longer a luxury but a pertinent requirement whose attainment must be sort after by everyone in the organisation, starting with the top management right through to those on the very least ranks. As much as there is a plethora of enterprise resource planning tools to help organisations meet their planning goals, very few match the calibre of Microsoft Dynamics NAV when it comes to attaining maximum efficiency in manufacturing.
If you are not yet acquainted with this wonderful resource by Microsoft, here are some of the subtle ways through which it can help any manufacturing organisation streamline operations and maximize their efficiency:
Controlling On-Time Delivery
Timely delivery is always a great concern for many manufacturing companies. Delay in timing is adequate enough to stall a whole production chain and consequently slow down the entire operations of the organisation.
Microsoft Dynamics ERP gives manufacturers the ability to generate realistic timelines through tracking of quantities in the inventory, planned production schedules, and product transfers as well as sale returns.
In this manner, the manufacturers will find it easy to give accurate promises to their various customers or the entire distribution chain on when they can expect to get their goods delivered.
Product Demand Forecasts Generation
Microsoft Dynamics NAV is designed with robust and advanced record keeping capabilities which allows manufacturing firms to analyse sales patterns so that they can anticipate future client demands.
With such a function, sales trends can be easily analysed to determine the products likely to have increased demand in the future, thus giving the company the ability to manage inventory accordingly and ensure product availability when they will be in demand.
This is vital for continued growth of the company since it will ensure that there is no single time when production is below the demand.
Advanced Information Tracking
Information tracking is vital for the success of any enterprise and not just manufacturing firms. The collection and analysis of the information is what companies use to gain meaningful insights from their operations and these ultimately aid in making decisions necessary for moving the organisation forward. Without the ability to track, success will always remain elusive for the organisation.
Microsoft Dynamics NAV has advanced feature for generating analysis reports to make it possible for uniform reporting which will enable the company to create customised report formats to highlight key information on the operations of the enterprise. Consequently, Microsoft Dynamics NAV makes information more accessible, allows for up-to-date inventory information in addition to having optimised manufacturing and warehousing capabilities.
As a result of poor organisation, most companies find themselves spending a lot of time, money and human resource on reviewing and double checking their records for mistakes and errors which might not make the final figures add up. But with enhanced operational precision, the amount of time as well as the money needed to do the reviews and double checking of the records for mistakes and errors will be reduced significantly.
All the records regarding production expenses will be readily available to the top management and this will make it easy for them to identify the various areas they could target for potential savings or may be eliminate expenditures which may be dimmed unnecessary. Such savings as well as accuracy of the records can be easily achieved by using Microsoft Dynamic NAV.
These are just but a few of the key benefits a manufacturing organisation can benefit from when they invest in Microsoft Dynamics NAV to maximize their manufacturing efficiency. It is an invaluable tool worth having by every organisation or enterprise keen on increasing efficiency and productivity and consequently profits.
