Dynamics GP Manufacturing Implementation Options and Support

September 23rd, 2022

If you are large manufacturing mill,Guest Posting or if you are engaged in process manufacturing (such as food processing, meat, poultry, mining, diamonds processing) – we recommend you to take a look at Microsoft Dynamics AX (formerly known as Axapta), but for the rest of us Great Plains is good choice. Let’s come through Great Plains manufacturing implementation and support highlights:
1. Full featured manufacturing suite versus distribution Bill of Materials. If you do not need such high-end manufacturing functionalities as Floor Capacity Planning, Quality Assurance, etc., we recommend you to look at Distribution BOM module, where you can do simple assembly (including phantom BOMs). Dynamics GP Bill of Materials module is budget oriented and well positioned for small manufacturing firm
2. When Manufacturing Suite is required. For mid-size manufacturing facility it is important to automate often complex steps in creating manufacturing order (it often comes from external manufacturing custom system), process it and finally post all the way through General Ledger. Besides Manufacturing Suite implementation services we recommend you to take a look at Alba Spectrum Workflow and Posting Server, where you can automate “standard” MO processing and route “exceptions” to GP Manufacturing screens for decision maker action (component replacement, backordering, obsolete part)
3. Manufacturing and Barcoding. Modern production facility often relies on Barcode scanners (parts picking from the bins), inventory restocking (Great Plains Purchase Receipts) and of course, when your make on order item is finally assembled, you fulfill the Sales Order on your warehouse floor via scanning the barcode label. Those and other barcoding features are available in Dynamics GP ISV barcoding extensions
4. EDI channels in Manufacturing. Electronic Document Interchange might be an imperative, especially when you are placing your Purchase Orders to Leading Nationwide Distributers. From your homework you might get the impression that EDI for Dynamics GP is something complex and very expensive. Well, you should be conservative and expect sales pitch. Of course, if your EDI module is required to support all the EDI formats (formatted text file, XML) and all the EDI delivery methods (ftp, http post, email). On the other hand, if all your EDI partners have one or two flavors of the EDI interface and delivery methods – it is probably reasonable to program EDI in precise SQL Select statement

Plastic Manufacturing Industry

March 15th, 2022

Plastics have become an integral part of human life. Most countries’ economies thrive on the business of plastic manufacturing and sales of plastic products. It is nearly impossible today not to find plastic products in a household. The plastic manufacturing industry requires good equipment and state-of-the-art machines in order to produce both high quality and a wide range of products. The manufacturers are also required to label their products, as well assign an identification number before being released onto the market.

In order for the plastic industry to achieve superior results, there are various steps used in the manufacture of plastic products. Those steps include plastic molding, plastic extrusion, and plastic thermoforming. Plastic products are viewed to be strong in quality, light, and are resistant to oxidation and corrosive reactions from chemicals. Plastics products range from utensils, to toys, to plastic seats used in every day life. Plastic products are preferred in the market today because they do not break easily and are bendable.

The plastic manufacturing industry usually employs a large number of people. Jobs in manufacturing include; mold makers, machinists and tool and die makers. These jobs represent a small sampling of the types of highly skilled positions found in this industry. A toolmaker will make and create tools, while the molder’s main role is to mold products based on the specific product being crafted.

The machinist, who is usually a jack of all trades, will ensure that all of the devices are operative and functioning per the manufacturer’s specifications. This includes ensuring that the programming of each machine is set to create the specific plastic part or component required. Because of the wide range of skills needed to adequately perform the job, prospective career entrants will need a strong understanding of mathematics and a firm ability to read and interpret blueprints and specifications.

Manufacturing jobs offer a wealth of personal benefits including access to specialized training, career development and the ability to work across the manufacturing plant.

Machinists and other plastics industry employees face bright career prospects. Despite the recent recession, there is still a tremendous demand for experienced, skilled workers. As countries around the world become increasingly dependent on plastic products, the demand for such workers is not set to subside anytime soon.

One may think that with all the plastic being produced, the world’s landfills are quickly filling with unusable plastic material. Fortunately, the industry is becoming self-sustaining. An increasing percentage of plastic products are being recycled. Some of the success can be attributed to government programs.
