How to work with more specialized areas of in Business Central?

In this video, we would look at the most specialized areas of Business Central.

This is what happens in the video

So this is a total overview of an ERP system all the normal processes in an ERP system meaning also in Business Central, of course, we’ll just have a quick overview of the very basic processes.

So those could be the finance cells, purchases, setting up items, and controlling your inventory.

This is the basic process that almost all companies would like to perform in their ERP systems, but we do have other more advanced processes and let’s say I have a small look at those.

First of all, we can handle projects in Business Central, meaning you can create a project that goes across purchase and sales and inventory and finance and you can gather up all registers on a project to see the gross profits and the performance on specific project numbers.

So you can add projects, numbers to all those different documents and gather up the information.

Then we have the production or the manufacturing area, which purpose is to take purchased items or semi produced items and add them into production orders to add value to them and to make them going into other items that you can put on stock or sell, and this way you can produce in a more complex level of inventory.

So you can purchase only raw materials and you produce up to finish goods that you would like to sell.

And then, we have the service module which is also a more complex module. You can create service orders, service items.

So from a sales perspective, you can maintain all your information on goods you have sold that you’re providing services upon and you want to lock the history on those services in which raw materials are items you have added to those services, to the service item and which resources you had used. So this is part of the cells functionality.

And finally, we have the planning functionality for planning items or demands into production orders or purchase orders or transfer orders, so this is a complex functionality for making Supply planning all through your supply chain.

This was some of all the more complex areas of Business Central.
