Master Data ManagementMaster Data Management

You need to be able to design data structures for items, vendors and customers.

  • You can create fields without customizing
  • and have text fields with no length restriction.
  • You can create items from a template
  • and search for items across all master data.
  • You can also run mass updates on many records at the same time, ie. If you need to rename an item.
  • And item data files from suppliers are easy to upload.
  • You can also manage item data in HTML format, so you can manage all your online shop data centrally from NAV.
  • No redundant maintenance.
Master Data Management in Dynamics NAV and 365

Listen to Thuesen Jensen A/S talk about how they manage Master Data:

  • Det har været vigtigt for os, at vi har fået nogle pæne varetekster, at vi selv kan rette i systemet uden at skulle bruge ekstern IT-hjælp – og at vi har mulighed for hurtigt og nemt at trække noget nyt ned over en masse varer på en gang.

    Det kan vi i dag med Master Data-modulet.

    Virksomheden hedder Thuesen Jensen og ligger i Glostrup. Vi er en dansk virksomhed der har datterselskaber i Sverige, Norge og Finland. Vi har ca. 7.500 varenumre som vi har på lager, derudover har vi en del debitorer i vores system, og på både vareniveau og debitorniveau, bruger vi Master Data-modulet, altså specifikationer.

    Da vi skiftede til et nyt Dynamics NAV-system, blev vi enige om at vi skulle prøve at kategorisere vores varer på en anden måde, og derfor gik vi over til at lave Master Data. Førhen havde vores varer en decideret skrevet tekst, i et tekstfelt der max skulle have 28 karakterer, tror jeg at det var.

    Nu har vi en opbygning af varer, hvor vi skriver de forskellige specifikationer, som type, farve, størrelse osv. ind i forskellige rubrikker, og så stykker vi en automatisk varetekst sammen inde i systemet.

    Vi har i dag mulighed for at tilgodese nogle krav som er blevet større og større i løbet af de sidste par år fra vores kunder, der har specifikke krav til hvordan vi skal fremsende varedata.

    Vores opbygning i dag er, at de ligger opdelt på for eks. størrelse eller type. Så kan vi fremsende data i den struktur, som vores kunder ønsker at modtage dem i.

    Så vores tekster er klart blevet mere ensartede og nemmere at søge i, og vi kan bedre sende de informationer til kunderne, som de ønsker at modtage dem. Og de krav er blevet større og større i løbet af de sidste par år.

    Vi har så samtidigt et datterselskab i Norge og Sverige, og for nyligt i Finland. Ved at vi har lavet den struktur i dag, skal vi blot have oversat ordet en gang og så ligger det inde i systemet.

    Så når man typisk skal oprette en ny vare, så har du stykkerne på svensk, finsk eller norsk inde i systemet. Så man kan stykke den nye varetekst sammen. Vi skal ikke have fat i en i Finland eller i Norge til at lave en norsk tekst.

    Hvis jeg skal ridse de vigtigste grunde op til at vi er glade for det nye system, så er det:

    1: Vores varetekster er blevet mere ensartede, vi har fået kønnere varetekster fordi vi opererer med pæne, hele ord som der ser ens ud på alle vores varer.

    2: Vi har meget nemmere ved at rette inde i systemet, hvis vi finder en fejl eller beslutter os for at en serie inden for porcelæn skal have et nyt navn. Så skal vi ikke ind og rette på 70 varekort, så skal vi bare rette et sted på navnet, og så slår det ned igennem på alle varekortene.

    3: Vi har meget nemt ved at tilføje en ekstra dimension, hvis det er sådan at vi vil have noget tilføjet til vores varekort, eller vores debitorkort i form af en specifikation. Vi behøver ikke at få en ekstern IT-konsulent ud for at lave det for os. Så det er meget mere brugervenligt for os, vi kan hjælpe os selv.

Dynamic documents

You need to be able to customize your layout so that your outgoing documents are consistent with your company’s brand – and they contain the information you want. This typically applies to:

  • Sales invoices
  • Credit notes
  • Order confirmations
  • Delivery notes
  • Purchase orders
  • Quotes

You can have reports in several languages, where you can change all of the text in the reports. You can also have different layouts with different profiles.
You can insert logos or background images on all of your reports, position the address fields to fit your envelopes, and you can even manage text in documents by period.
Here are some examples where our customers have created a delivery note with special customs regulations and an invoice with a logo inserted.

Supply Chain Management

Many of our clients manage their item processes with Dynamics NAV, which is why we have incorporated a lot of Supply Chain Management functions. If you need to manage items, then there are definitely a lot of features you will enjoy using.

Our Supply Chain Management-functionality in Dynamics is compiled in a series of apps marketed internationally as Supply Chain Box.

In the Business Edition you can choose 3 modules from the list (with a few exceptions, which only come with the Enterprise Edition).

In the following we take a look at some of the most popular apps:

Supply Chain Management in Dynamics NAV and 365

Planning in Dynamics NAV and 365

One of the most popular modules is Reverse Planning.

You need a good planning tool if you have employees who plan purchasing and production. We call it Reverse Planning, and it allows you to see which items can’t be delivered within a given period or by a specific date – and this enables you to easily manage your scheduling.

  • We are a manufacturing company. We produce plastic packaging, plastic caps and bottles for the pharma and food industry. We operate 24 hours per day – 6 days a week.

    With Reverse Planning we can plan our manufacturing as simple as a purchasing journal.

    A simple journal provides us an overview of the manufacturing and purchasing requirements. It suggests manufacturing orders based on reorder points. It takes all sales orders and inventory levels into consideration. Completely automatically.

    Today our planner spends 3 hours a day on this, compared to 8 hours a day previously.

    Simply because Reverse Planning suggests all necessary actions.
    We just check a box to create manufacturing orders. It is all automated.

    I have to say: Anyone can do it. It takes only 2 minutes to learn.

    One of the huge benefits is that we never run out of critical components anymore.
    Previously it happened once a week. Today it never happens.
    We can easily forecast if anything runs below the reorder point.

    It has been a fantastic improvement for us. Productivity has improved.
    Our machines run 24 hours a day without interruptions, because we never run out of components.

    We have used Reverse Planning for several years, and it has become so important for us, that we have forgotten how terrible it was in the beginning to do manual planning in standard Dynamics NAV.
