At the fall Partner’s Directions Conference, we got some great feedback from our many partners. Top of the list was they wanted Manufacturing Plus as a standalone granule, exactly like Reports Pack, Business Snapshot Plus, or Quality Control. We took that suggestion back to our development team and said, “Split out Foundation Pack and Manufacturing Plus“.
I am pleased to announce both Manufacturing Plus and Foundation Pack are now separated into individual products. You can purchase one, or the other, or both. We didn’t stop there. 95% of the Manufacturing Plus code now has its own number range. We are using the new event-based development option for Publisher and Subscriber functionality. This new Microsoft technology was just not available 15 years ago when we started to deliver these products.
What does this mean for you as a Dynamics NAV user? You still get the Manufacturing Plus feature set (see webpage), and since it now uses events, the software becomes minimally invasive to base NAV code. We can now deliver Manufacturing Plus as a database, as a FOB file, or as a TXT File. This way you will still have full access to the source code if you need to make client-specific changes.
