Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management provides capabilities for end-to-end processes that manufacturers, distributors, consumer product groups, and retailers require to meet their supply chain needs. Functionality ranges from product information management, planning, inventory, sales, and procurement to complex manufacturing, asset maintenance, warehousing, and transportation management.

Improving the agility and efficiency of front-line workers continues to be a priority in this release wave, with new and reimagined experiences for Inventory Visibility and Asset Management that simplify daily tasks and deliver actionable insights where and when needed. Warehouse management workers enjoy incremental usability and productivity enhancements in the Warehouse Management mobile app, including the added support for iOS devices.

Businesses with sales processes spanning Dynamics 365 Sales and Supply Chain Management benefit from true end-to-end process integration for improved accuracy and efficiency. Omnichannel sales strategies get a boost with new and improved ways of managing attribute-based pricing, integrated soft reservations, and improved order promising capabilities with an extended available-to-promise (ATP) horizon.

Discrete manufacturers that struggle to comply with both generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and local statutory accounting principles can now leverage the Global Inventory Accounting Add-in to supplement their statutory inventory accounting practice with parallel, standard-cost-based inventory accounting practices in multiple currencies. Manufacturers with a mix of discrete and process manufacturing processes can onboard Planning Optimization, which provides improved performance, scalability, and near-real-time insights into requirement changes.

Organizations seek increased agility and resilience through optimizing their fulfillment capabilities and warehouse operations. This release brings a simplified warehouse configuration experience that will reduce implementation time. It also provides insights into the performance and usage of the warehouse management system, which organizations can use for optimizing warehouse operations.

  • Archive inventory transactions and sales orders. Businesses running large databases can establish rules for archiving data from their day-to-day working environment into a data lake, which allows for historical reporting, auditing, machine learning, and more.
