Microsoft Dynamics NAV Production Scheduling Enhanced: VPS version 1.5

Posted by Ute Gillet on Jul 28, 2021 12:05:30 PM

The Visual Production Scheduler (VPS) is an interactive graphic planning board for Microsoft Dynamics NAV, visualizing production orders, production order (routing) lines, and operations in connection with the capacity utilization of work and machine centers. Operations can easily be moved by drag & drop, thus not only providing new transparency of the Dynamics NAV data but also enhancing the Microsoft Dynamics NAV production scheduling capabilities.

Fair enough: we are pretty focused on developing and enhancing our visual scheduling extensions for Dynamics 365 Business Central. Nevertheless, we also continue to maintain and develop our visual scheduling add-ins for Dynamics NAV ... supporting the large "Navision" customer base. 

Hence we are proud to announce a comprehensive release of a new version of the VPS. It comes with a truly wide range of new and powerful features the Visual Production Scheduler for Dynamics NAV has been equipped with.

New version of visual scheduling add-in development toolbox for Dynamics 365 Business Central

Posted by Kerstin Sieckmann on Jul 27, 2021 10:30:00 AM

Whether project management, production planning or simply coordinating employees for service calls - for scheduling a graphical planning board is the ideal tool to work with. For Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central we offer ready-made graphical planning boards for both production scheduling and project/resource planning which fully integrate into the ERP system. If these extensions (or Add-ins for previous NAV versions) are not enough for your scheduling processes, you can use our Visual Scheduling Add-in Developer Toolbox (VSADT) to develop your own planning board, without any knowledge of HTML5, but only with the help of AL (or with C/AL, if you are still using NAV). We have now extended our "toolbox" with some important visualization functions, which I would like to present to you now.

So, it is not surprising that we can now already publish another new major release of the Visual Scheduling Widget (VSW). Let yourself be excited by the innovations.

6 errors to avoid when starting with Business Central production scheduling

Posted by Ute Gillet on Jul 5, 2021 2:15:00 PM

Our experience with hundreds of production scheduling customers from the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central and Dynamics NAV market has proven very impressively that starting using an ERP system for production planning in most cases is perceived as difficult.

A lot of the ERP "beginners" come from having used the most diverse planning systems with the most diverse level of technological development, such as corkboards with tacks, whiteboards, and the famous homegrown Excel spreadsheet, to mention just a few.

So with this blog, we want to offer some assistance by sharing the insights we gained from our experience with our partners and customers and show what can be done to make you ready to jumpstart production scheduling in Business Central.

How to jumpstart Business Central production scheduling [podcast]

Posted by Martin Karlowitsch on Jun 14, 2021 11:30:00 AM

The Business Central Manufacturing Show is back. This podcast started as something I would call a “first COVID lockdown project” in spring 2020. Six months ago, I lost a bit of traction, then got distracted and the podcast came to an unplanned stop. However, we analyze our marketing data.

Here is the finding. We stopped the podcast. We stopped to promote it. Nevertheless, the episodes that we recorded got listeners. Week, by week. So: what is more inspiring than creating content that has, well, a "fan base"?

Here we are again. We decided to make the podcast a natural part of our monthly Marketing plans. Thus, we aim for one episode a month for the time being. For my first new episode, I met Antonio Checa from Spain. And we had a great conversation on how to jumpstart Business Central production scheduling.
