It's true: the more data sources you have, the more scattered your data becomes. With accounting systems operating completely separate from manufacturing operations software, it's no wonder you have such a high lag time between job completions, shipments, and finance updates.
Don't solve this problem by throwing labor at it. Choose a system that incorporates Finance, Manufacturing, and Inventory Tracking in one convenient interface. Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is built with the manufacturer in mind to keep everything you need together.
Manufacturing Modules in BC
It's pretty simple to calculate the cost of a finished good when you take one component and transform it once, using every bit of raw material. But you and I both know that's not how this works in the real world ...
With Business Central, you can track costs throughout your production process, even if you store an inventory of semi-manufactured components or bring raw materials from separate purchase orders. With this solid data, you can confidently price your products to ensure the margin you need.
Cost Tracking Across the Production Process
Every manufacturer has a different policy when it comes to when items should be replenished. Complicating the picture even more, different components often have different replenishment policies at the same company. It's no wonder an employee might get confused and produce something that doesn't have a current demand.
To correct it, don't replace the employee; replace the system! With Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, you can set every component in your production chain to its own replenishment cycle, which is enforced by the Manufacturing module. Problem solved!
