Relieve from Inventory
Function Demo

Thanks to Sabre ETO, users can easily decide to take existing inventory and consume that on hand value and costs to the Job Ledger. Planners can carry this out using the “Relieve from Inventory” function as a new action on the BOM Planning Lines using ETO. Learn more about this and other inventory functions in this video

Benefits Of Dynamics 365 Business Central And Sabre ETO Addon For Manufacturing

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central streamlines and integrates every need of your manufacturing process from scheduling and planning, to distribution and inventory to financial management and job costing. Dynamics Business Central is an award winning solution from the premier business software company in the world.  Dynamics 365 is priced for the Small and Medium manufacturer, and offers a huge selection of world class addon products.  Sabre Limited are the leader in North America implementing Microsoft Business Central for manufacturing companies just like yours.

Project Manufacturing Focused

Project Costing
Engineer-to-Order are focused on projects, not widgets. The out-of-the-box project accounting modules of Business Central are ideal for tracking project completion, forecast, budget and actuals: before, during and after your project finishes.
Track the sales estimated costs as well as outstanding / committed costs on your projects.

Project BOM
Unlike the typical, static BOM used by production manufacturing - an ETO BOM is often in-flux and both more complex and detailed but less structured than traditional manufacturing. We leverage the standard project planning lines in Business Central to create and manage your ETO BOM.

Purchasing and Production Dispositioning

Purchasing
The interactions between engineering or project management and purchasing can be an area of ETO manufacturing where communication must be carefully controlled. Sabre ETO allows the engineer and buyer to coordinate and have visibility into each other's actions.

Manufacturing
Sometimes Dynamics Business Central ETO users also have manufacturing capabilities on-site, from a small job shop to a full fledged production floor. Planners can release project BOM elements directly to manufacturing - including using integrated MRP/MPS capabilities driven right off the project dashboard.

Engineering Drawing Data Load

ETO businesses are driven by engineers, and in particular they rely on data originating in CAD systems such as AutoCAD, Inventor or SolidWorks.

Import BOM data from drawings into the Dynamics Business Central ETO solution via spreadsheet integration. Optionally utilize CADLink for an industry standard automated bi-directional integration with the most popular CAD systems.

Sabre ETO offers basic and enhanced BOM Management, and allows for the automatic creation of items directly from import data sources.

Track Labor and Activities

Microsoft Dynamics Business Central ETO manufacturers need to track labor broadly for their projects. This includes engineering time, technicians, field service staff and other non-traditional manufacturing workers.

In addition, ETO manufacturers sometimes need to track status of activities on different components and requirements of their projects.

With the Sabre ETO addon and the standard out-of-the-box capabilities of Business Central Jobs, time and activity completion can easily be tracked in your manufacturing projects.

Project Manufacturing

Project Manufacturing is a form of Engineer-To-Order where the business designs and builds complex projects that themselves are made up of more "traditional" manufacturing. This kind of manufacturing can be called mixed-mode, and involves the mix of ETO and standard manufacturing to make the complete product.

Business Central for ETO is used by Project Manufacturers to manage project costs and control purchasing, manufacturing and scheduling.

Businesses that are Project Manufacturers generally employ a large
number of engineer and design staff, and have a full manufacturing shop
floor equipped with the CNC and other equipment required for their
production. Project Manufacturing is a form of Mixed Mode
manufacturing, as it involves both Engineer to Order type work as well as
production manufacturing.

Examples of this type of manufacturing might be HVAC manufacturers who supply large buildings with custom heating units or a manufacturer who builds multiple manufacturing production lines for a single facility.

Build to Job in Sabre ETO Addon

Learn about the Build to Job function in the Sabre ETO Addon which will include the job setup for build to job, how to create a linked production order and how to create a linked assembly order.

Relieve from Inventory in Sabre ETO Addon

Thanks to Sabre ETO, users can easily decide to take existing inventory and consume that on hand value and costs to the Job Ledger. Planners can carry this out using the “Relieve from Inventory” function as a new action on the BOM Planning Lines using ETO. Learn more about this and other inventory functions in this video.

BOM Import in Sabre ETO Addon

In this video you'll see the BOM Import functionality using the Sabre ETO Addon.

Architectural Manufacturing

Architectural manufacturing is a sub-type of Engineer-To-Order businesses supplying the construction trades. These companies use Dynamics 365 Business Central ETO to manage their design, build and delivery of projects. Most manufacturing companies in this space use Business Central similarly to job-shops who design and build simple architectural structures. The difference is that they create complex projects made up of many job-shop built parts. These are either for decorative or practical use. Examples in this space are custom concrete or stonework (such as building facades), architectural steel decorative and practical structures (staircases), curtain walls (windows) etc.

Architectural Engineer-To-Order manufacturers usually have a number of engineering designers on staff. They take information provided at a high level by architects to design and build solutions. Using Business Central to coordinate delivery of product, and the job shop production of their project components is a goal.

Insert Assembly in the Sabre ETO Addon

In this demo, you'll see how to use the insert assembly function in the Sabre ETO Addon. The goals of the video are to demonstrate who can insert and assembly BOM, items available for insert and how to insert an assembly BOM.

Designer vs Planner Roles in the Sabre ETO Addon

Sabre ETO Addon contains the concept of a "Designer" and a "Planner" and the ability to do a workflow between the two so that information is visible, but certain functions are restricted depending on the role. The video will include the purpose of the two roles, what a Designer can do, what a Planner can do, and where permissions sets can be accessed to associate to each role.

Job Enhancements in Sabre ETO Addon

This video will explore the job enhancements that Sabre as made over time to the ETO Addon based on feedback from ETO companies and gaps that Sabre has found over time. Discussion will include new fields on the job card, updates to the task area and updates to the planning lines.

Industrial Equipment Manufacturing

Some ETO companies have found a niche in a particular area of expertise. Companies that make conveyor systems, lift systems, ovens (cooking or heat treat) are examples.

These companies are a kind of "Repetitive ETO" as they have a product catalog of some kind, but rarely (or never) sell anything from the catalog without modification.

Equipment builders or industrial equipment manufacturing is focused on selling these catalog products with high degrees of customization. Engineering time is spent adjusting details and designs.

Request for Quote in Sabre ETO Addon

Here is a demonstration of the Sabre Limited ETO (Engineer-to-Order) addon written for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.  This video will provide a brief overview of  new user fields, the changes made to Business Central jobs and BOM (Bill of Materials) planning lines that provide better functionality for engineer-to-order manufacturers.

D365 Sales Integration with Business Central

In this video, you'll see how the Sabre ETO Addon has given the ability for users to create one Purchase Quote for multiple vendors in one action. It eliminates the native functionality where you would need to manually create the quote multiple times for each vendors - in one step you can have 3 quotes created for 3 vendors.
