Hi. we are implementing D365 Operations (startup) that build/assemble industrial equipment (expect low transactions to begin with say 100s per month). As a first phase we are targeting Financial management with an ability to receive items and/or SO. We use different tool to design BoM and manage it there (plan to integrate with D365 at sometime in the near future). Production module/MP/Manufacturing is not targeted for phase 1. Wondering what would be the best (simple) way to manage inventory and financials as it relate to item receipts and sale of assembled units (finished good).
few open questions that I have:
1. We don't plan on creating BoMs (sale units) at least in phase I release. How can we register inventory reduction when an item is sold (sale item typically consists of about 100+ raw materials). Do we need to create a BoM and run through production w/costing sheet? I am wondering how others are handling this w/o production/manufacturing modules setup. Manual inventory movement journals?
Note that we ship the assembled items (not a lot to begin with say 15 to 20 assembled units in the first year). we are going with standard costing model. Any thought would be appreciate it. Your thoughts/feedback is appreciated.
