Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management

Build resilience with an agile supply chain

Innovate with the breadth and depth of intelligent, adaptable Dynamics 365 business applications

Innovate with intelligent manufacturing operations

Drive automation and reduce downtime using IoT and mixed reality across any type of manufacturing process—discrete, lean, process, and mixed-mode. Perform production planning in real time with the Planning Optimization add-in.

Modernize warehouse management

Avoid running out of stock or overstocking through machine learning–enhanced guidance that recommends more effective inventory management. Accelerate inbound and outbound processes such as put-away and pick-pack-ship using embedded Microsoft Power BI analytics.

Optimize production performance

Identify potential machine issues before they occur, prevent downtime, and increase product quality and yield using IoT. Improve workforce performance with interactive learning solutions using mixed reality.

Maximize the life of your assets

Extend the life and performance of your equipment. Use IoT and mixed reality to plan, predict, and proactively perform asset maintenance with the Asset Management add-in.

Automate and streamline your supply chain

Enhance delivery of your products and services by using predictive analytics to optimize planning and improve the fulfillment, material sourcing, and logistics of your supply chain.

Accelerate time to market and resolve product quality issues

Accelerate time to market

Gain a competitive advantage by centrally managing product information across global sites and subsidiaries.

Simplify configure to order processes

Enable companies to empower their customers to easily customize their orders. Provide a platform for engineers to effectively collaborate with planners in the manufacturing process.

Resolve issues quickly and manage product quality

Ensure efficient production lines by effectively managing product revisions and predicting and resolving quality issues with engineering change management.

Gain planning agility to fulfill customer demand

Improve demand planning

Use AI-enriched demand forecasting and streamlined sales and operations planning to help ensure on-time delivery to customers with the right product.

Optimize production and distribution planning

Plan production and distribution in near-real time with in-memory services, helping to ensure that the right inventory is in the right place at the right time.

Optimize resource scheduling

Optimize inventory and logistics

Enhance inventory visibility

Deliver cross-channel inventory visibility in real time to streamline production and fulfillment, improve accuracy and optimize inventory, reducing overstocking and stock-outs.

Improve cost management

Maintain cost-accounting ledgers globally to streamline cost-management policies and perform cost-and-profit analysis in real time.

Simplify procurement processes

Collaborate with vendors, manage contracts, build redundancy for critical supplies, and negotiate the best price for direct and indirect supplies based on performance, spend, lead times, and quality.

Accurately estimate landed costs

Simplify landed cost estimation using customizable templates to improve profit margins and cost of goods sold (COGS) forecasting, and improve supply planning by enhancing the visibility of goods in transit.

Automate warehouse operations

Optimize warehouse operations, material handling, workforce planning, and inventory flow with integrated warehouse management. Track performance with configurable dashboards and improve productivity with a mobile app.

Innovate with intelligent manufacturing operations

Create a connected factory

Proactively manage the shop floor using a real-time view of your production and stock to improve throughput, quality, and uptime.

Build agile manufacturing processes

Support discrete, process, and lean manufacturing with make-to-stock, make-to-order, configure-to-order, and engineer-to-order strategies.

Benefit from innovation

Implement sustainable and adaptable manufacturing processes that use AI, the Internet of Things (IoT), and mixed reality to accelerate time to market for new products.

Keep production running continuously

Easily scale production during peaks and keep critical manufacturing processes running at high throughput on the edge (in preview). Ensure business continuity in remote locations even when disconnected from the cloud.

Transform your workforce

Maximize asset uptime and longevity

Reduce costly machine downtime

Proactively manage business-critical equipment by performing all types of maintenance—predictive, corrective, condition-based, and preventative.

Effectively manage geographically dispersed assets

Automate and optimize resource scheduling to minimize travel time and maximize the time to perform maintenance of geographically dispersed assets by taking advantage of Dynamics 365 Field Service.
