In Microsoft Dynamics Business Central, you can perform common project management tasks, such as configuring a job and scheduling a resource, as well as providing the information needed to manage budgets and monitor progress. You can track machine and employee hours on the project by using time sheets. As a project manager, you have a good overview, not only of individual jobs, but also of the allocation of employees, machinery and other resources being used in all projects.
Before you can use Business Central to manage projects, you must set up resources, time sheets, and jobs.
Typical Functions supported:
When you start a new project, you must create a job card with integrated job tasks and job planning lines, structured in two layers.
The first layer consists of job tasks. You must create at least one job task per job because all posting refers to a job task. Having at least one job task in your job enables you to set up job planning lines and to post consumption to the job.
The second layer consists of job planning lines, which specify the detailed use of resources, items and various general ledger expenses.
The layer structure enables you to divide the job into smaller tasks, and therefore use more specific details in budgeting, quotes, and registration. In addition, it gives you insight into how a job is progressing. For example, you can track whether you are meeting designated milestones or if you are on target to meet budget expectations.
