The Production Order View and the Resource View in the Manufacturing Module of Microsoft Dynamics NAV Classic Client have been created with the ActiveX Edition of VARCHART XGantt.

The wrapper and the NETRONIC VARCHART XGantt control (vcgantt.ocx) are on the delivery CD of Microsoft Dynamics NAV, Classic Client.

Beside the existing Production Order und Resource View in the Classic Client of Microsoft Dynamics NAV you can also develop new planning boards. For example create individual layouts for the planning of e.g. your delievery dates and the corresponding customers, by visualizing data taken from the table "Sales Header" in a Gantt chart. Red triangles indicate the delivery date. By dragging the triangles delivery dates can be rescheduled. For this example a prototype can be made available on demand.
This is only a short example of an overview that makes your production planning in Microsoft Dynamics NAV Classic Client more comfortable and safe. Develop with VARCHART XGantt (ActiveX or .NET) Gantt charts tailored to your special requirements.
