The current market situation is facing significant supply chain disruptions due to various factors, such as the pandemic, trade tensions, geopolitical situation or extreme weather conditions. As a result, many businesses are experiencing supply shortages of raw materials and components required for production.
Microsoft Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management is a powerful solution that helps companies maintain manufacturing pace and fluency despite supply shortages.
Firstly, it allows companies to prioritize orders based on urgency and not only on delivery date. This means that high-priority orders can be fulfilled first – this helps to prevent delays in production and ensures that essential products are manufactured on time.
Secondly, priority-based planning enables the system to automatically split larger orders into smaller ones based on priority. This means that high-priority orders can be fulfilled even if there are supply shortages, as the system can allocate available resources to these orders first.
Thirdly, by giving more importance to urgent orders, companies can avoid production stoppages caused by stockouts. For example, if a raw material required for production has run out, the system can automatically prioritize its restocking over other routine orders, ensuring that production can continue without interruption.
Overall, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Priority-based planning helps companies effectively handle limited availability of raw materials and production components. Priority-based planning can maintain manufacturing pace and fluency despite supply shortages and avoid production stoppages caused by stockouts.
