What Can Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Do For The Engineering Industry?

If your business engineers products, then Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central can handle your business processes and manage your full business in a single system. Effective use of ERP will not only save you hours of time each week managing projects and resources, but will help you become more profitable and delight your customers with outstanding customer service.


Use Cost Accounting for Data Accuracy

Cost accounting on Microsoft Dynamics will help you understand the costs of running your business. You’ll be able to easily analyse the types of costs incurred in the running of your company, where the costs occur and who bears the costs. You can easily allocate actual and budgeted costs of operations, departments, products, and projects to analyse profitability.


Never Lose Track of Your Stock

Implementation of stock tracking means you can trace items as they move across internal warehouses, or outbound and inbound transactions and for general quality assurance, warranties and product recalls. By using item tracking, you can calculate availability and see how much of an item is being used elsewhere, helping to reduce errors and uncertainty caused by double allocation.


Using Time Sheets to Track Allocation

You can use time sheets in Business Central to track absence, and to track time and resources that are spent on a project. With time management, you can identify issues early, and avoid delays or cost overruns. With time sheets, a resource can easily report time usage for an individual or a machine, and a manager can easily review the usage and its allocation.

Enterprise Level Functionality, SME Prices

Warehouse and Distribution Management

Move and track goods at maximum efficiency and minimum cost with warehouse management functionality. Users are provided with their pick runs and put away instructions for goods arriving, which includes bin location based on both capacity and zone. Plus, you can use data to optimise capacity and resources to improve efficiency across your teams.


Project Management and Scheduling

It’s easy to achieve simplified project management processes. From a resource scheduling perspective, you can create resource groups so you can (visually) bundle resources. Then, create your resources and add them to the appropriate resource groups. Finally, assign capacity to all of your resources and then it’s quick and easy setup of projects (called Jobs) from here on out.


Complete Visibility Every Step of The Way

Manage long-term projects that involve the use of employee labour hours, machine hours, inventory items, and any other type of usage. Get an overview of not only individual jobs, but also the allocation of employees, machinery, and other resources that are being used in all projects to allow you to schedule or plan capacity within your business, without leaving the system.

Tailored Support

Manage The Profitability of a Job with Ease

Enter tasks for your job, so you can specify everything that must be done to complete it. Plan capacity, budget requirements for resources, items and other costs, as well as whether they should be billed. From Job processing screens, you can upload information live from Excel; add job planning information or update existing planned costs or revenue.


Simplified Fixed Asset Management

Manage your internal assets, track their history and see employee allocation. Track warranty, service details and insurance information for each of your individual items, so you can easily monitor and manage equipment and other assets from a single platform. See your fixed asset opening balances and easily calculate the depreciation of any asset too.
