Automotive companies strive to manufacture high-quality, cost-effective, and compliant products. Microsoft’s Dynamics 365 for Finance & Supply Chain Management (D365) is a game-changer in meeting these goals. Offering integrated analytics and workflows, it significantly simplifies the management of automotive production and distribution.

In an industry as demanding as automotive manufacturing, control over data not only assists with intricate production schedules but also ensures the equipment is operating at full capacity for optimal production efficiency. Similarly, using D365 can make compliance with industry regulations and guidelines more efficient.

Centralized Quality Control and Compliance with D365

D365 brings about accelerated compliance with evolving regulations by retaining high-level visibility and control over your supply chain. Using data analytics, manufacturers can trace raw materials throughout the production process, thereby ensuring centralized quality control in compliance with regulatory agencies.

D365 simplifies tasks such as instructions for technicians, part requests, and component calculations. This not only guarantees accuracy but also prevents cross-contamination across the supply chain. By using D365’s functionalities, automotive companies can quarantine releases by user and material type, control obsolete components, segregate lots, track batches, and manage hazardous materials.

D365 Tracking and Tracing Capabilities

The automotive sector benefits from tracking and tracing capabilities. With D365, each vehicle component can be traced back through the supply chain. This helps authenticate each part before assembly, return, or recall. It prevents faulty, counterfeit, or expired parts from entering the supply chain and plays a crucial role in quality control.

Moreover, D365’s robust ERP system offers logistics processes essential for mobile-friendly access to real-time information about inventory, container status, shelf life, and handling instructions. Dynamics allows automotive companies to gain complete control over their manufacturing, distribution, and supply chain processes while reducing costs and saving time.

Optimizing Operational Efficiency with D365

Dynamics 365 provides functionalities that help automotive companies tackle stringent regulatory requirements and increased transparency expectations. It gives automotive manufacturers the capabilities and efficiency needed to comply with parameters around visibility, safety, quality, validation, and even cost control.
