Optimization of production processes with Dynamics 365 SCM (Supply Chain Management)

There is a need for companies to create agile and sustainable manufacturing processes that require streamlined processes and increased visibility into production plants and supply chains. Microsoft Dynamics 365 (D365) Supply Chain Management enables organizations to optimize production processes with enhanced shop floor visibility and improve performance and quality.

Priority-based planning

One challenge manufacturers face is when multiple orders for the same items land simultaneously and there is not enough stock to meet demand. Which distribution center or store should the orders be filled and in what order? What is most important and how should manufacturers prioritize? While it is easy for an individual to manually decide priorities in situations like this, manufacturers lack the automation to make these decisions.

Master planning with Planning Optimization is changing the game for manufacturers. The priority-based planning feature can be used to set up optimal replenishment based on priority, rather than just by date. This enables companies to increase service levels, reduce available inventory and optimize their supply chains by prioritizing replenishment orders to ensure that demand is met by level of urgency.

Planning priority is automatically calculated based on a flexible configuration that considers inventory levels for minimum, reorder point, maximum and projected available including planned receipts and distributions. This data can be used to compare the importance of any order across all products and locations.

With priority-based planning, organizations gain the ability to:

  • Calculate, manually edit, or set planning priorities by default.
  • Control replenishment by setting reorder point parameters.
  • Split and optimize distribution orders using planning ranges.
  • Group planned orders in the firm.
  • Use customizable planning priority ranges.
  • Apply planning priority capabilities to inter-firm orders.

MES integration

Manufacturers invest heavily in two layers of automation: production lines and equipment and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. One challenge manufacturers have faced when dealing with these two separate layers of automation is how to keep data synchronized as transactions occur in both. Fortunately, the Manufacturing Execution System (MES) resides between these two layers and manages the unique operational requirements of manufacturing.

The Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management MES integration provides the means to keep data and transactions synchronized between the two systems. It also makes it faster and easier to integrate Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management with common manufacturing execution systems.

By integrating a third-party MES solution with Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management, data exchange is fully automated in near real-time. This is important because it keeps data up to date in both systems and also eliminates the need for manual data entry (which is often prone to errors).
