This course discusses manufacturing in the Dynamics 365 suite of apps: discrete manufacturing, lean manufacturing, and production
A Dynamics 365 Finance Functional Consultant is responsible for performing discovery, capturing requirements, engaging subject matter experts and stakeholders, translating requirements, and configuring the solution and applications. The Functional Consultant implements a solution using out of the box capabilities, codeless extensibility, application and service integrations.
This module explains the concepts used in the Production control module in Finance and Operations.
Discrete, lean, and process manufacturing methodologies
Even though each legal entity's manufacturing processes are unique, depending on the nature of the production environment, the core conceptual elements that are used in the Production control module are frequently very similar.
Discrete manufacturing concepts
Before you can work in the Production control module, and create production orders, you must set up production parameters. The parameters you select have direct impact on the production order and the production life cycle. You can set the parameters by company or by site, which determines whether Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations uses the company-level parameters or the site-specific parameters.
Parameters, Production Orders and Life Cycle reviews how these parameters are defined, how journal names are used, how production orders are created, and the ways in which they are processed through manufacturing based on their status and the production life cycle. This lesson explains how to configure Discrete manufacturing in Finance and Operations.
Configure inventory dimensions in production
The life cycle of a production order reflects the actual steps that are taken to manufacture a product. It begins with the creation of a production order and ends with a finished, manufactured product that is ready for the customer. The production order is assigned a status that reflects where it is in the production life cycle.
This module reviews the Release, Start, Report as finished, and End stages in the production life cycle in the order in which they are conducted. Release, Start, and Report as finished are considered part of production control
Understand capacity planning
This module describes how to set up a costing sheet that includes material and manufacturing, and how the setup affects the BOM calculation results.
Let’s learn how to configure and manage costing sheet in Finance and Operations.
How to work with the costing sheet
Manufacturing execution is primarily intended to be used by manufacturing companies. Workers can register time and item consumption on production jobs and project activities using the Job registration form.
All registrations are approved and subsequently transferred to the relevant Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations modules. Continuous approval and transfer of registrations give managers the ability to easily track actual costs on production orders.
Understand the manufacturing execution
Product configuration is a constraint-based product configuration tool that uses the Microsoft Solver Foundation (MSF) product technology that is designed for modeling and constraint solving.
You can use product configuration to create and maintain product configuration models, and to reuse components and attribute types. Attributes, constraints, subcomponents, user requirements, Bill of Material (BOM) lines, and route operations are implicitly reused when you reuse a component. Components can also reuse table constraint definitions.
This module explains how to get started with product configurator in Finance and Operations.
The terminology that is important for understanding the concepts and processes
This topic explains how to get started with the Lean manufacturing in Finance and Operations.
Understand Lean manufacturing
This topic explains how to configure Lean manufacturing in Finance and Operations.
A Lean manufacturing scenario is usually more than an accumulation of unrelated Kanban rules or material-supply policies. The flow of material and products throughout work cells and locations for a specific production or supply scenario can be described as a sequence or small network of process or transfer activities, called a production flow.
The activity-based production flows are introduced in Finance and Operations to establish a production and cost context for various Kanban scenarios. All Kanban rules are directly connected to this pre-defined structure.
The activity-based model allows users to set up a wider range of scenarios than supported by previous versions of Lean manufacturing for Finance and Operations, without adding complexity for the shop floor workers because all scenarios use the same activity-based user interface.
In Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, a Kanban is implemented as a framework to plan, track, and process based on Pull signals.
A Kanban is an essential part of a pull system of supply, which is a critical element of Lean production/supply. When a Kanban has been consumed, it should be passed (triggered) to the source of supply to replenish it. This source of supply is defined through the production flow activities to which the Kanban is linked.
Kanban rules in Finance and Operations are tied to production flows as the foundation that defines the activities of a Kanban. Kanban rules can be set up to support a variety of make-to-stock and make-to-order scenarios.
You understood an overview of Kanbans and Kanban types
In this module we discuss the event kanbans and different ways to trigger them.
Configure and process event Kanban rules
The planned orders of type Kanban are created based on the Kanban rule and follow the standard Master Planning logic and horizons. Master Planning item coverage settings determine how the planned orders are created and whether they are automatically or manually firmed. In this module we discuss the scheduled kanbans in Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations.
Configure and work with Kanban rules
The basic principle of a production flow does not change when activities are subcontracted using Finance and Operations; material still flows between locations, process activities convert material to products, and transfer activities move material or products from one location to another.
In Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, there are two approaches for subcontracting: production orders and Lean manufacturing.
The first approach models the subcontracting work as a service that is related to an activity of a production flow. A cost group type, direct outsourcing, is required to be configured, so that the subcontracting services are not as part of a BOM.
The cost accounting of subcontracted work is completely integrated in the new costing for manufacturing in Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations.
Configure activity-based subcontracting
This topic explains how to get started with process manufacturing in Finance and Operations.
Understand process manufacturing
This topic explains how to configure batch attributes in Finance and Operations.

This topic explains how to work with commodity pricing, and compliance in Finance and Operations.
Configure commodity pricing
The objectives of this module are to review the interaction between manufacturing and warehouse reservations, review setup of item model groups to utilize manufacturing and warehousing and discuss the rules related to the reservation of items using both process manufacturing and warehousing.
