Day in the life: Introduction

Are you responsible for managing on time deliveries of jobs; taking into account machines, crew, tool and material constraints? It’s a tough job when everything changes day and day, you’re dealing with Murphy’s law and you’re relying on timely information that other people need to provide, but if you’re feeling overwhelmed take 1 hour out of your day and learn how it could be better.


We’ll show you how to graphically display the load vs capacity, run reports that easily show machine downtime, efficiency, utilization and quality. Demonstrate how to model different scenarios, outsource if overloaded and identify future bottlenecks.
This webinar is designed for people who are new to Dynamics or never received official training. We’ll first begin by covering the basics in the toolset that Microsoft Dynamics provides on production scheduling then later daily tasks and tips to make life easier.
