Top 10 powerful Features of Dynamics 365 for Supply Chain Management

by Sam Lee We Teach Technology & Business. We Manage Learning
The latest update of Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations incorporates a series of modifications that help supply chain management. Among other changes, the partial transport of a load, the immediate replacement of the sites, the reason codes added to the counting and adjustment of the warehouse and the new analytical workspaces with integrated Power BI for cost management are modified.

Organizations issue offer requests (RFQ) when they wish to receive competitive offers from various suppliers of the items or services they must purchase. Allowing the supplier to enter an offer for an RFQ requires explicitly indicating who has entered the offer data. Updates make it easy to determine who has entered an offer (a supplier or a procurement department) through a new response status. In addition, there is a new form to enter offers so that their entry and processing are now handled in separate forms.

Partial Load Function: The Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations update includes the partial transport function of a split load or load. This supports scenarios in which the load planning of a transport department cannot affect the planned loads for a single truck or a specific output transport capacity. With this functionality, it is no longer necessary to wait for transport trucks or another capacity to arrive to create the planning load. This feature allows customers to designate one or more charges to be fully or partially charged. In addition, it is integrated with the appointment schedule.

Supply chain management: The comments received while operating the service allowed the identification of specific threads in the field of inventory management that may be subject to performance improvements. With the April 2019 version, the ability to configure and implement the unit of measurement (UM) conversions for product variants has also been expanded, so that the product version level UM conversion is now compatible with all applications.

Financial management: The April 2019 edition for financial management seeks to respond to customer comments about regulatory features and usability. Customers will have the necessary efficiency to comply with IFRS 15 and respond to guidance on an accounting of revenue recognition in contracts.

Warehouse management: The Warehouse Management System (WMS) is a recent successful improvement of a set of applications that operate in a number of areas, each with specific requirements to operate a warehouse. 

Sales and acquisitions: The April 2019 edition also includes usability improvements in sales and acquisitions that increase productivity and user satisfaction. Superusers can propose filtered views and create forms from which they can eliminate unnecessary fields or actions. 

Workflow: Before July, Microsoft will offer an early version of several improvements to the developer tools, which will make the development environment more profitable and productive. An improved workflow experience including integration with Microsoft Flow will be available.

Manufacturing: The core priority of Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations is to optimize core commercial manufacturing processes. The April 2019 edition focuses on improving resistance to master planning against platform and infrastructure errors, and offering incremental improvements to the performance of master planning.

Integration: Customers can now easily connect to Common Data Services (CDS) for Dynamics 365 for finance and operations applications. In addition, the entity store will be temporarily stored in the customer's Azure data lake. Microsoft will keep data updated with incremental synchronization. Event-driven integration is a new functionality that provides a framework to allow Microsoft Flow and external systems to consume business and workflow events from finance to operations.

Adjusting: Users can now add a source of differences when counting and when adjusting. This allows the warehouse manager and the controller to have a better understanding of the distribution of an event and take appropriate measures. The origins of the differences are implemented in the journal count for the warehouse module and on a mobile device.

Immediate Actions: It includes the functionality of immediate replacement of the sites, which is used during the execution of the wave if the assignment fails for a location directive line that has a replacement model.
