Are you searching for a way to get better control of your Bill of Materials with Engineering Change Management? I can totally relate to that. Out of the box, Dynamics NAV’s Production BOM section is designed for any user to change any thing at any time. It wasn’t that long ago that end-users were asking me if we had an Add-on that would help them better manage their Production Bills. Here is what we were hearing: Approval Management, Add Item(s), Swap/Change Item(s), Remove Item(s). All for 1 Production BOM OR Multiple Production BOMs. Our first release of ECM was for just 1 BOM at a time. The feedback was good, but the concept of controlling multiple BOMs was even more appealing.
I am pleased to announce that we have added “Multi-BOM Management” to our Engineering Change Management Granule. We still have the Approval Management with the new NAV 2016 Workflow System, but we added the ability to affect multiple BOM Changes upon “Carry Out”. We designed the solution to appeal to a broad range of NAV Manufacturing users. To give you a first look at this Add-on I have created this information video. It focuses on the new Multi-BOM Management feature. I hope you like it, and I would love to get your first impressions or feedback.
