Part 4 of 7:

The following information will give you a quick overview of the added functionality that is available in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 in the area of Inventory.

Item Availability Views:

  • Item Availability by Event – projected inventory figures by demand or supply event. If figures change because of an event, this window will display information about the dates. Forecasted figures and planning suggestions can be filtered.
  • Item Availability by Timeline – graphical views of an item’s projected inventory (inventory profile) centered on future supply and demand events, as well as planning suggestions. Drag and drop editing allows changes to be made to the quantity and due date of supply orders in the graphical view. Changes can be saved to the planning worksheet.
  • Item Availability by Bills of Material (BOM) Level – availability figures for bills of material that indicate how many parent units can be made from the available lower level child items. BOM structure, assembly BOM or production BOM is shown in a collapsible line if available for each item. These lines can be expanded to show lower level subassemblies with their own BOM structure and other necessary components.

The aforementioned three new overview windows, and the existing choice overview inventory windows, give six methods of analyzing an item’s availability. Access to all six methods are available from item cards or document lines and worksheet lines. Go to the item and choose “Item Availability By”.
