Are you new to MRP in Dynamics GP or are you looking to improve how you use it in your business? If your answer is yes, then you are in the right place! I will be presenting on April 24 through GPUG, the Dynamics GP User Group, in one of their upcoming Academy Live classes.

GPUG Academy is similar to our own GP Training courses and other webinars and events we offer throughout the year, with virtual, on-site or hybrid training sessions to meet your GP needs and expectations. This approach to training promises to offer GPUG members an exceptional learning experience.

Are you a manufacturer that just wants to settle? Alternatively, are you a business owner who wants to take their supply chain management in the manufacturing industry to the next level?
In the food and beverage industry, managing every stage of production, from the storage of raw materials to processing, packaging, storing and shipping the final product, is even more difficult when you factor in variables such as freshness, batch control, and allergen or organic requirements.
Just in time inventory for distribution can be handled with direct delivery process in Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations (D365FO).  Items that are big, bulky or very costly to manage in a warehouse are all great candidates for direct delivery to your customer or project. Once you have made the decision to direct deliver these products, you can setup and manage the process in D365FO. It will insure that you have accurate costing and invoice your customers in a timely fashion. 
Since the romaine lettuce contamination just before Thanksgiving, the produce industry has been abuzz with discussions of the increasing incidence of supply chain contamination in recent years. In a study released by the United Public Interest Research Group, it was reported that food related recalls are up nearly 10% between 2013 and 2018.  While the article does allow that improvements in the science and increases in testing since implementation of the FSMA as a factor, it also noted that there were significant gaps in the food safety system.  They list four areas where improvements could be made to increase the effectiveness of the food safety system. 
A fly in the ointment As we move beyond the Information Age into the Digital Age, manufacturers are being challenged to envision and deploy new digital technologies to maintain competitiveness, improve performance and enhance relevance with their customers. A major point of resistance to achieving this digital future, is the antiquated and isolated ERP systems that are the backbone of these businesses. If your ERP system doesn’t support changing manufacturing methods, interactivity with the plethora of emerging services on the digital web, or connectivity to the assets and systems being empowered by the Internet of Things (IoT), what is a manufacturer to do? The likely answer is that your ERP system must be replaced before these other key elements of a digital transformation can be pursued.
