Posted by Martin Karlowitsch on Oct 7, 2011 9:29:00 AM

NaviServ is a start-up company, located in St. Petersburg, and specialized as a Microsoft Dynamics Solution Provider for the ERP-Solution Microsoft Dynamics NAV in Russia. The NaviServ team members are former consultants of Technoserv Consulting and Reksoft, so that the company can draw upon a broad expertise in business process optimization and production scheduling.

When looking for a software solution to manage and control their production orders in their different manufacturing plants, IKP, a manufacturer of plastic containers, contacted NaviServ. Microsoft Dynamics NAV did not fulfil all their advanced planning requirements so NaviServ offered an extended solution: the standard production planning is performed by Microsoft Dynamics NAV whereas for the specific control of the production orders the data from Dynamics NAV are transferred to an additional, newly developed Gantt chart application, built as a web based stand-alone solution. The web architecture is required to grant all plants access to the SQL database of Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

Production Scheduling with Gantt Charts

The user can interactively change the planned order by simple drag and drop. Due to the web architecture of the Gantt application the changes will immediately be available in Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
"Having analyzed the existing technological potential of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV platform enhanced by a Gantt chart, we have chosen the solution developed by the NETRONIC Company from Germany. The VARCHART XGantt tool offered by NETRONIC, being architecturally compatible with Microsoft Dynamics NAV, enabled us to design, within the shortest possible time, the required functionality of Gantt chart which is best suited for major needs of efficient production management", comments Valeriy Grigoriev, Director of ERP NaviServ.
