Business value

To minimize the risk of running out of materials while working on a production order, supervisors use Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management to check production orders for material availability before releasing orders to the shop floor. This feature makes it possible for organizations that use the scheduling type "Schedule operations" to check for material availability. Previously, it was only possible to check for material availability when using the "Schedule jobs" scheduling type.

Feature details

Before releasing a production order to the shop floor, production supervisors typically check the material availability of each order by going to the Production floor management workspace and selecting the Production orders to release tile. The Production orders to release page now lists and indicates material availability both for orders that use the Schedule operations scheduling type and for orders that use the Schedule jobs scheduling type.
