Dynamics 365 Business Central has functionality around Made-To-Order and Made-To-Stock Manufacturing as well as Assemble-To-Order.
With Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central you can create and manage production orders and post consumption and output to the production orders. After you have created a production order, you can calculate net requirements based on that production order.
The Production Orders module also includes a manual supply planning tool as an alternative to automatic planning. The Bill of Materials is powerful, functional and easy-to-maintain. With Agile Manufacturing, you can plan rush orders, make exceptions and handle last-minute changes to your manufacturing processes with multiple planning options.
Finite Loading of capacity-constraint resources management is also part of manufacturing functionality. This is used for taking capacity constraints into account so that no more work is assigned to a work centre or machine centre than the capacities can be expected to produce.

Can Calculate Either Master Production Schedule (Mps) Or Material Requirements Planning (Mrp) On Request, Or It Can Calculate Both At The Same Time.
Allows Manufacturers To Schedule Production Activities Based On The Availability Of Resources And To Optimise Production Schedules To Meet Demand.
Manufacturing companies use sales, stock, and purchasing features to buy and sell finished items. However, the manufacturing module offers additional control to manage raw materials, machine or human activities, and output finished items. The manufacturing module supports an MRP process using bill of materials and routing mechanisms, and production orders are created to consume components. Back or forward flushing and discrete issuing of materials are available, along with features such as scrap management and sub-contractor manufacture.
Dynamics 365 Business Central offers a kitting module that simplifies the manufacturing process. This allows for the creation of an assembly order that removes components from stock and creates finished items in one easy process. The kitting module in Business Central enables companies to manage the process of putting together various components into finished kits or packages. It includes creating kit items, defining kit components, and tracking kit inventory levels.
The kitting module can be used in various manufacturing, assembly, and distribution industries. With the kitting module, businesses can create bill of materials for their kits, track inventory levels of kit components, and manage the process of kitting and un-kitting items. This helps to ensure that the correct components are available when needed, minimising waste and inefficiencies in the kitting process.
