Configuration of variants in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central/NAV. A

anaptis Configuration:

Your challenge.

Conventional configurators are not flexible

Conventional variant configurators for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central or Microsoft Dynamics NAV/Navision offer either too large or too small a scope of services. For example, you can use a competitor’s tool to manage machine allocation plans in addition to articles – for many small and medium-sized companies, this is too much administrative work or too much functionality.

The range of functions in the standard system is too small

In the Microsoft Dynamics Standard, the functionality is again limited to the fact that different variants can be created for each article, but no different assembly parts lists. Consequently, one is not very flexible with regard to individual orders. In addition, specifications are difficult and time-consuming to implement. In summary, it has not been possible in any tool to create several variants of an article with different product configurations in a simple way.

In close cooperation with our customers, it became clear that an intuitive variant configurator for Microsoft Dynamics had to be developed that made specifications and individualizations easier and thus created a competitive advantage.


Our solution.

Products with individual assembly parts lists

Our add-on anaptis Configuration, the ERP system extension developed by us, allows you to easily build your own product variants with individual assembly bills of materials. Suppose you produce bicycles. You build one variant with one basket, one without and one with two baskets – intuitively and simply within a few clicks. This minimizes sources of error and optimizes processes.

Conditions, detection of duplicates & Co.

In addition to the classic addition of components to assembly parts lists, it is also possible to add conditions, such as the necessity of a handlebar for the production of a bicycle. The variant configurator for Microsoft Dynamics also recognizes duplicate variants, so that duplicates do not occur and clarity is maintained. Finally, you manage your resources automatically, since employees can also be added to the assembly parts list as a resource.
