Setting Up Production Lead Time in Dynamics NAV if Not Using Routings

Setting Up Production Lead Time in Dynamics NAV if Not Using Routings

There are manufacturing companies using Dynamics NAV that want to offset the start time on production orders to accommodate production time even though they are not using Routings. To illustrate, we set up a test item. Note that the item has a BOM, but not a Routing. Setting up an item with a BOM but without a Routing
Figure 1 – To offset start time on production orders without Routings, start by setting up an item with a BOM but without a Routing Notice, also, that when we create a Production Order for the item, the Starting Date and the Ending Date are on the same day. The Production Order for the item has Starting and Ending Dates on the same day
Figure 2 – The Production Order for the item has Starting and Ending Dates on the same day To add lead time to a Produced Item, enter the lead time into the Lead Time Calculation field on the item card. Add Lead Time into the Lead Time Calculation field on the Item Card
Figure 3 – Add Lead Time into the Lead Time Calculation field on the Item Card Now, when we refresh the Production Order, we can see that the Starting Date is offset to 8/25/14, 20 days before the Ending Date. This sets up your lead time. Refreshing the Production Order shows the Starting Time offset by the amount of the Lead Time
Figure 4 – Refreshing the Production Order shows the Starting Time offset by the amount of the Lead Time For more information on this or any other Dynamics NAV topic, please contact ArcherPoint.
