CymSTAR, a simulation engineering and manufacturing company, talked about the benefits of upgrading to Microsoft Dynamics 365 at the Columbus  Manufacturing Virtual Summit 2020 . A demo-oriented curriculum that focused on migrating to the cloud and integration with Microsoft Dynamics 365 was a highlight in this ‘Customer Spotlight’ talk.

 

CymSTAR Controller Carol Wills and Columbus Data & Analytics Practice Director Michael Simms, presented a detailed account of how manufacturers can ensure swift ERP migration with maximum ROI.

CymSTAR develops new simulation systems and modifies legacy training systems to achieve concurrency with aircraft configurations. It also provides onsite technical and maintenance support for training systems and live-fire ranges.

In her talk, Carol discussed the successful implementation of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management from a customer perspective. She spoke about what went right and what did not, including functional and technical scope considerations, the impact on non-Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations enterprise data assets, and how the implementation fit into CymSTAR's long-term plan. Carol also spoke about the challenges with the original AX 2012 implementation, the needed to be upgraded from AX 2012 to Microsoft Dynamics 365, the company’s desire to integrate budget and forecasting modules, and what the lessons they learned during this journey.

Afterwards, Michael explained the various ways manufacturing companies can optimize their operations by leveraging the data and analytics advantage.

Microsoft Dynamics Business Central is a business management solution, otherwise known as an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution, designed for small and mid-sized businesses to automate and streamline business processes.
Can you remember when you last set up the data in your current NAV or Business Central system? Whether this happened many years ago or more recently, an essential part of the process is to enter master data and opening balances. We hope that you did not enter this large volume of data manually and instead used the data migration functionality within Business Central to validate and import the data in the Excel spreadsheets into your system.
I have been privileged enough to have had a career spanning a significant number of years in operations within manufacturing and distribution—first in the motor industry and then into the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG)— with multiple roles covering most aspects of the product supply chain. For a long time, I have been a strong advocate of maximizing a solution as far as possible to drive real operational improvements, thanks to my exposure to ERP solutions for over 20 years.
