Companies on the lean manufacturing journey often struggle to get lean manufacturing to work smoothly with their ERP / MRP system. Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations was built with lean manufacturers in mind, and LeanCONNECT takes your system to the next level.
Typically, moving your current ERP system data over to Dynamics 365 is a time-consuming process. LeanCONNECT has an easy data migration tool that allows you to pull in traditional manufacturing data from any ERP system, convert it into lean manufacturing data and assign it to the right fields in Dynamics 365. The LeanCONNECT base also comes with lean manufacturing extensions to make lean manufacturing within Dynamics 365 more intuitive and better aligned with lean principles and lean terminology.
“What if…?” LeanCONNECT Design answers that question for every scenario you throw at it. Using data from any ERP system, LeanCONNECT will help you understand the impact of your proposed value streams. Once you’ve decided which path you will pursue, the LeanCONNECT Design Connector will sync those changes to Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations.
Whether you use fixed interval scheduling or product wheel scheduling, LeanCONNECT scheduling will ensure you are meeting customer demand. Fixed interval scheduling, also called Every Part Every Interval (EPEI), distributes the demand evenly over a set period of time. Product wheel scheduling will look at customer demand and inventory replenishment levels and optimize the setup sequence and changeovers.
