More Planning Reliability: prisma informatik Develops Individual Gantt Charts for Dynamics NAV

The ERP system Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 is a flexible business software specifically designed to meet the sectoral demands of medium-sized companies. No matter whether production or trade are concerned, Dynamics NAV 2013 provides all the necessary functionality for the company’s central areas and contains a large part of the data needed for leading a company.

Especially where production, disposition and logistic processes are concerned, it is not only important to gain access to all data but it will often be much more interesting to gain an up-to-date and clear-cut overview of the current status of processes and the capacitiy utilization as is also the case with project management.

VARCHART XGantt provides a clear-cut overview of data

The Gantt component VARCHART XGantt allows to design well-arranged Gantt charts for project and production plans. Due to the powerful functionality of VARCHART XGantt, individual overviews can be easily created for all sorts of application areas and requirements: In production to ensure optimal capacity utilization, for gaining better control of services in service management, in logistics to enhance the transparency of processes, in project management to display operations in a clearly-arranged way or in disposition to cope with complex data.

A perfect team for Dynamics NAV users

The Nuremberg-based IT company prisma informatik and NETRONIC from Aachen make a perfect team when it comes to meet the requirements of companies wishing for a clearer overview of their data to gain higher planning security. Being a Microsoft Gold partner, prisma informatik has the knowledge needed for the technical implementation wheras NETRONIC provides the visualization know-how.

For example, prisma has developed a Production Schedule based on VARCHART XGantt and has integrated it in the Dynamics NAV ERP system of a company producing and processing foam materials. This graphic overview now allows the employees to control and coordinate the production orders and the machine utilization as well as to optimize the production process.

A German chemical company, also belonging to the clients of prisma informatik, provides another practical example of using a NETRONIC component to visualize Dynamics NAV data . For them, prisma has used VARCHART XNet to develop a network plan visualizing formulation chains provided by Dynamics NAV. That way, the planners can realize which steps in the process are particularly labor and cost-intensive and where anything could be optimized. The formula chains also help to bring multiple production tasks needed for manufacturing the product in the correct order.

Up-to-date and comprehensive company data together with the individual visualization provide the additional value that is vital for companies so that they can respond to changes in a prompt and flexible manner, optimize processes and avoid bad planning. So it turns out that prisma informatik and NETRONIC are the ideal team to improve the performance of Microsoft Dynamics NAV in each company. “We have been working together with NETRONIC already for a long time on the realization of graphic overviews for the individual planning demands of our customers. We and our customers benefit from the components’ reliability and powerfulness as well as from NETRONIC’s rich experience and their fantastic support”, says Jens Thamer, managing director of prisma informatik.
