This module examines the production order processing from execution to put away in the warehouse. The first part explains material consumption. This can be done either manually or automatically. The automatic methods are forward and backward flushing.

Next, it explains the pick and put away features used in the warehouse.

Finally, this module discusses the use of the Output Journal to track the hours worked and the materials used in production. There are three methods for recording output.

After completing this module, students should be able to do the following:

  • Issue components using the Consumption Journal.
  • Pick and Put Away items used in manufacturing in Warehouse.
  • Record production order output using the Output Journal.
  • Register consumption and output from a Production Journal.

Finishing Orders and Auto Reporting

This module examines the finishing of production orders in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009. This is the last step in the production execution process. After the production order is finished, the flushing of materials is done either automatically or manually. This module explains the forward and backward flushing methods, and discusses their advantages and disadvantages. Finally, the production posting is done either manually or automatically.

After completing this module, students should be able to do the following:

  • Finish Production Orders
  • Conduct Automatic Reporting
  • Be able to record finished production.

System Setup

After completing this module, students should be able to do the following:

  • Use the Sales Order Planning Window.
  • Make Changes to Production and Sales Orders.
  • Define the Order Planning process.

Forecast and MPS

This module goes into detail about production forecasting and explains how to net actual demand to forecasts. Additionally, the Planning Approach is explained, and how to forecast for components and sales items. The module also describes how Master Production Scheduling (MPS) provides input to Multi-Resource Planning (MRP) in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009.

After completing this module, students should be able to do the following:

  • Explain what the Production Forecast involves.
  • Define Netting Actual Demand and Forecast.
  • Examine the Planning Approach.
  • Explain forecasting sales items and components.

  • Determine when a Purchase Order is related to a Production Order.
  • Determine the status of Subcontractor Operations on Released Production Orders.

Advanced Capacity

Advanced Capacity examines the capacity setup needed to run production planning with constrained resources. Planning with constrained resources is needed when bottlenecks appear in the production environment.

First, the work center group, work center, and machine hierarchy are set up. Then the connected work calendars are defined. Finally, the use of the capacity journals for capacity planning is described in detail. The capacity planning can be seen as the possibility to make a "shop supervisor overview" for the manager responsible for the production.

After completing this module, students should be able to do the following:

  • Define Capacity Resources
  • Set up Work Centers and Machine Center Calendars
