Subcontracting Management in Business Central
Posted on: June 13, 2022 | By: Rosie Gill | Microsoft Dynamics Business Central
Subcontracting is a very common occurrence in the manufacturing industry. Certain products may require a third party’s assistance or expertise when in the creation process. Incorporating different vendors into the production order process can become tricky very quickly, so Business Central has a module that makes it easy for businesses to keep a vigilant watch over any subcontracting operations.
In Business Central, users can create something called a subcontract work center, which is a work center that is associated with a specific vendor. This tool makes it easy for businesses to process subcontracted activity.
The work center cost can be calculated based on either units or on time. Employing this tool ensures that cost calculations are accurate and reflect the specific metrics of any given organization or vendor.
Users also have access to the subcontracting worksheet feature in Business Central. This tool makes it easy for users to identify the production orders that have material ready to send to a vendor or subcontractor. Moreover, users can automatically create purchase orders regarding subcontract operations from production order routings.
Business Central empowers manufacturers by expanding their scope and giving them more control over production order operations.
