in Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations
Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations offers you the option of switching directly from rough cut to detailed planning. At rough cut planning level, you can still plan as far as the group, but each individual resource item is displayed at the detailed level. The level of planning detail can be adjusted in the settings. The integrated personnel and operating data collection function displays exact time allocation for each resource item during planning. This is the only way to plan with 100% precision. Employee absences, machine breakdowns or other operational malfunctions influence capacity levels. This method usually doesn´t work on demand from a certain company size onwards. Staff can react to capacity changes in good time only when these changes are immediately visible at the detailed planning level.
The Kanban method is a cost-optimised solution for valued added chain management. Order warehouses are stocked solely with those raw materials to be used immediately for the order. Kanban detailed scheduling requires that delivery times for each individual raw material also have to be considered for scheduling. Kanban detailed scheduling is especially suited to companies needing to optimise their warehousing and stock turnover rates.
Kanban detailed scheduling enables visual controlling of schedules for lean manufacturing work groups. It includes an overview of all Kanban individual procedures, with several integrated filtering functions.
Detailed scheduling involves the following tasks:
Lean schedule groups are grouped and used to manufacture individual products in Kanban planning. Grouping can be carried out as generic mapping for each company, or for a work group. Each group has a colour denoting which team they belong to.
