Process manufacturing is associated with formulas and manufacturing recipes, in contrast with discrete manufacturing, which uses discrete units, and bills of materials. Process manufacturing is used in manufacturing environments where production is completed in batch or semi-continuous processes.

Modules in this learning path

  • Get started with production control in Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management
    20 Units
    2 hr 25 min

    The life cycle of production begins with the creation of the production order, batch order, or kanban. It ends with a finished, manufactured item that is ready for either a customer or another phase of production. Each step in the life cycle requires different kinds of information to complete the process. As each step is completed, the production order, batch order, or kanban shows a change in the production status. Different types of products require different manufacturing processes.

  • Identify and configure batch attributes for process manufacturing in Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management
    11 Units
    2 hr 25 min

    Often, customers demand specific requirements for the finished goods results from process manufacturing. For example, in the cheese industry, milk is one of the raw materials that is used to produce the cheese and it can have attributes such as fat content and percentage weight. The cheese that is produced from the milk can have other attributes, such as moisture and age. If the customer requirement is not met, you will either have to rework the process or start a new batch process. To ensure that process manufacturers meet customer demands, you must define batch attributes that reflect customer requirements. Additionally, after a quality check, the finished goods must meet the value or range of values from batch attributes.

  • Work with commodity pricing and compliance in Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management
    8 Units
    1 hr 56 min

    The fall and rise of prices for commodities such as renewable energy, natural gas, coal, and oil in manufacturing affect the cost of production. In this module, you will learn how to set up commodity pricing and stay in compliance for your finished goods.

If a company only produces simple products, production can be scheduled manually with the correct bill of materials (BOM) parts arriving on the production floor, at the correct time, and at the proper resource. As a functional consultant for manufacturing, you need to know how to configure Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management for discrete manufacturing, so your customer can perform and control the production lifecycle.

As a functional consultant for manufacturing, you need to know how to configure Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management for discrete manufacturing, so your customer can perform and control the production lifecycle.

  • Work with the costing sheet in Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management
    11 Units
    2 hr 38 min

    Manufacturing companies need to calculate the costs that are related to finished goods that are being produced such as labor, materials, surcharges, and overheads. You can configure Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management to calculate costs of bill of materials of the finished goods in production. Additionally, you can create costing sheets that are broken out by particular cost categories, incorporate routing costs, and even add surcharges and other indirect costs. Companies can then analyze, summarize, and evaluate cost data so they can make the best possible decisions for price updates, budgets, cost control, and so on.

  • Work with capacity planning and scheduling in Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management
    12 Units
    1 hr 35 min

    The role of the scheduling system in Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management is to plan the production process so that each operation in the production route is assigned a starting and ending date and time, and that the materials needed for production are available when the operation starts.

  • Work with manufacturing execution in Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management
    9 Units
    1 hr 5 min

    The Manufacturing execution module is intended primarily for manufacturing companies. It can be used to register time and item consumption on production jobs or projects. Before you start to use manufacturing execution for job registrations, you must set up various production parameters that define how and when registrations are posted during the production process. The settings of production parameters affect inventory management, production management, and cost calculation.

  • Get started with product configuration in Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management
    15 Units
    3 hr 6 min

    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 in Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management.

Lean manufacturing is a journey of continuous improvement. The goal is to produce exactly what the customer wants, when the customer wants it, and to do it economically. You can use lean manufacturing in a unified (mixed-mode) manufacturing environment that combines various supply, production, and sourcing strategies. These strategies include production orders, batch orders for process industries, purchase orders, and transfer orders. The lean manufacturing architecture in Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management consists of production flows, activities, and Kanban rules.
