Configuration of variants in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

TOO LITTLE FUNCTION IN THE STANDARD:

Your challenge.

Small functional range in the system standard

If you want to create variants via Dynamics 365 Business Central or Dynamics NAV, this is complicated and cumbersome in the system standard.

The functionality is initially limited to the fact that different variants can be created per article, but not different assembly parts lists. If you want to create different articles with individual assembly parts lists, this is only possible in the system standard by creating a separate article.

You can imagine that the list of articles becomes confusingly long as a result. In addition, the system standard does not automatically recognize duplicates.

This means that companies are not very flexible when it comes to processing individual orders. Finally, specifications are difficult and time-consuming to implement.

Competitor tools have too much or too little functionality

Conventional variant configurators for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central offer either too large or too small a scope of services.

For example, you can also manage machine allocation plans in a competitor’s tool, which is too much of an administrative burden for many small and medium-sized companies.

EASILY MANAGE VARIANTS PER PRODUCT:

Our solution anaptis Configuration.

With our solution for variant configuration in Dynamics 365 Business Central, and thus the app anaptis Configuration, we want to solve the problem that up to now it was neither possible in the system standard of Dynamics 365 Business Central, nor in any other tool, to easily create several variants for an article with different assembly parts lists.

In close cooperation with our customers, it became clear that an intuitive variant configurator had to be developed, which makes specifications and individualization easier. With the help of our App anaptis Configuration you can easily build your own product variants with individual assembly parts lists. The variant configurator also recognizes duplicate variants, so that no duplicates occur and the clarity remains. In addition, you can easily manage your resources, since employees and machines can also be added as resources to the assembly parts list.

Example
Suppose you produce bicycles. Here is how you build a variant with an assembly BOM over one basket, a variant with an assembly BOM without basket and a variant with an assembly BOM over two baskets.
