Enabling Microsoft Dynamics NAV ERP with APS Advanced Planning & Scheduling


Microsoft Dynamics NAV ERP with Advanced Planning and Scheduling

With your existing investment in Microsoft Dynamics, improving your order turnaround times and cutting manufacturing costs has never been easier. You can easily improve your planning and scheduling process by “plugging in” PlanetTogether, the leading production planning and scheduling tool for Microsoft Dynamics. Built from the bottom up in the .NET Framework, Microsoft’s flagship architecture, PlanetTogether is the best choice for a complete, integrated Microsoft-based planning and scheduling solution.   But the questions are sure to be asked: how do I know that I’m ready for a PlanetTogether APS implementation?  What sort of information does the APS require from NAV? Don’t worry; we’ve got you covered there too. Below is a list of fields that are typically brought over from NAV into APS

Compatible Versions: PlanetTogether APS is compatible with NAV 2009 R2, and can also be retrofitted to earlier versions.

Here are just a few examples of what you can import from NAV:

  • Work Center Groups and Work Centers
  • Machines, Items and Inventory
  • Bill of Material
  • Sales, Purchase and Production Orders
  • Routing Lines and Production Order Components

PlanetTogether also allows you to publish schedules back to NAV:

  • Start and End dates at the task level
  • Reported Quantities
  • Reported Time
  • Job Statuses
