# Design And Development#

## General#

Design and Development extends the production processing of Microsoft Dynamics Business Central™ in numerous places. The centerpiece is the new "article version" dataset with which the product life cycle of an article can be mapped. In addition, variant-specific production BOMs or routings can also be defined by overriding the production BOM or routing.

The following sections describe how to use and manage the "Design and Development" module of KUMAVISION factory365.

## Establishment#

### Design & development facility#

The "Design & Development Setup" is the central place for the setup of the "Design & Development" module. Call up the "Design & development setup" via the user search and make the necessary settings with the help of the tables below.

#### Inforegister General#

Field Comment
Variant required This defines whether in the design & development with article variants must be posted. (If the required article master has variants).
Usable status article version With this selection you can control which status article versions may be used in the design & development processes.

The following selections are available:

All:
The article version can be used independent of the status.

Certified only:
Only certified item versions can be used.
Display FA in reservation structure Depending on the selection in this field, the E+D mask or the standard mask is called in the reservation structure in the FA.

The following selections are available:

Standard FA:
As soon as the "Display document" function is used in the reservation structure, the production order is called up in the standard mask.

E+D Order:
As soon as the "Display document" function is used in the reservation structure, the production order is called up in the E+D order mask.
Barcode separator The separator for the barcode in report 5500 - "FA component and routing" is hereby defined.
Example:
Barcode separator = \$

Barcode in the "FA Component and Routing" report would be for released FA 101031, item 1000, operation 010:
101031$$1000$$010
Stepwise E+D Position no. This facility is required for the determination of a unique E+D position. With this field you can define the step-by-step positioning in the E+D order lines of the "E+D position" field.
Position item separator This setup is required for the determination of a unique E+D position.
With this field you can define the separator for the items in the E+D order lines of the "E+D position" field.
Position phantom separator This setup is required for the determination of a unique E+D position. With this field you can define the separator for the phantom BOMs in the E+D order lines of the "E+D position" field.
Position operation separator This setup is required for the determination of a unique E+D position. With this field you can define the separator for the operations in the E+D order lines of the "E+D position" field.
Position common part summary This facility is required for the determination of a unique E+D position.

This field specifies the character for the common parts grouping. If an article is used in several assemblies of a production order, the system combines them and generates a "collective FA line" for this.

Such production order lines are marked in the E+D position with the defined character as suffix.

Important:
The system only groups together non-variable parts if no item no. is maintained in the component.
Position Additional costs Separator This facility is required for the determination of a unique E+D position.

This field specifies the separator for the additional costs (only with the "Valuation & calculation" module) in the E+D order lines of the "E+D item" field.

#### Information register PDM#

The PDM setup fields are not explained here. These will be explained to you in more detail in the "Computer-Aided Design (CAD) Transfer" sections.

Field Comment
Automatically transfer attributes to versions Define here how the system should behave when assigning new attributes to an article:

Not:
Entering new attributes at the article has no effect on the article version.

New only:
Newly entered article attributes are transferred to article versions with the status "New".

to Certified:
Newly entered article attributes are transferred to article versions with the status "New" as well as "Certified".

to Certified and reset to New:
Newly entered article attributes are transferred to article versions with the status "New" and "Certified". If the status of the article version is Certified, it is reset to "New".

All:
Newly entered article attributes are always transferred to the article versions.
Item attribute functional structure resolution If the same attribute is stored at the FA component, for the functional structure explosion the E+D order lines are categorized according to the article attribute values based on the specified article attribute.
Item attribute functional structure resolution Name Specifies the name of the assigned value in the Item Attribute Functional Structure Resolution field.
Article attribute logistic structure resolution If the same attribute is stored at the FA component, the E+D order lines are categorized according to the article attribute values for the logistical structure explosion based on the specified article attribute.
Item attribute logistic structure resolution Name Specifies the name of the assigned value in the "Item attribute logistic structure resolution" field.

#### Inforegister execution#

Field Comment
Precision duration Presets the field of the same name in the E+D order with the option: "millisecond", "second", "minute", "hour" or "day".
Calculate times incl. secondary operations With the activation of the switch, the secondary operations are taken into account for the calculation of times and completed quantities ("Planned time (ms)", "Consumed time (ms)", "Remaining time (ms)", "Planned time", "Consumed time", "Remaining time", "Consumed time %", "Completed quantity" and "Completed quantity (base)") in the E+D order lines.
Calculate routing in change message through comparison For the "Reschedule" function in the production order, the planning direction is preset with Forward or Backward.
Shipping units for logistic structure resolution Specify here whether you want to have the logistic view or the shipping units displayed via an attribute assignment.

For more information on this topic, see "Shipping units" and "Item attributes".

Note:
If you activate the switch, the value in the "Item attribute logistic structure resolution" field will be cleared.
Observance of the production type in the D+D order Use this field to define how the system should behave when calculating production orders with maintained E+D project no. in relation to multi-level production:

Standard
The system checks whether the production order line is set to production type "make-to-order" and procurement method "production order".

Always contract manufacturing
In principle, make-to-order production is implemented regardless of the parameterization to articles or inventory data.

Contract manufacturing according to master data
The system checks whether the component is set to production type "make-to-order" and procurement method "production order".

This setting is the default value. In the production order, the production type can again be adapted to the specific order using the function "E+D Change production type".
Procurement type for quantity increase At this point, define how the system is to behave in the event of quantity changes in the FA:

Enterprise Resource Planning
The system behaves as in the standard

Project management and enterprise resource planning
If component quantities in a production order are increased after they were originally procured, this setting does not include the requirement in the planning worksheet, but it is handled as follows during the FA update:

The quantity deviation is implemented by duplicating the FA component with the deviating quantity in the system. In the background, a reserved purchase order is created directly in the purchasing case and a new FA line is created for the duplicated component in the production case.
Autom. update after E+D planning If the switch is active, the E+D order lines are automatically updated when the E+D order planning has been carried out.
Check status (finished parts list/work plan) Define here whether the status of the routing and production BOM:

Always
Always be checked

If E+D project no. empty
Only if the field "E+D project no. " is empty should be checked.
Find production data if empty in article version Article:
If the article version does not have a finished parts list and routing and the "Article" option is set in this field, the production data (finished parts list, routing) of the article will be used.

Article version:
If no production data exists at the article version and the option "Article version" is stored in this field, the production data of the article will be ignored.
Calculate available for stock transfer in E+D planning Define here whether the quantity should be calculated to other storage locations for information during (E+D) order planning.

If the switch is active here, the information is not displayed.
The field is especially useful for a large number of storage locations, as it can optimize the runtime.
Planning - accept event message The "Accept event message" identifier is preset to "Yes" in the E+D planning if the Automatic option is selected. Otherwise, the "No" identifier is preset for Manual.

#### Information register monitoring#

Field Comment
Max. Finished parts list level Specifies the maximum finished parts list levels for the plausibility check for design monitoring.
If the system determines a higher vertical range of manufacture, the system terminates when the level is exceeded and shows this as a structural error in the result.

### E+D Cockpit#

From the overview of released E+D orders the fields exist:

Field Comment
Material consumption traffic light Visual representation of material consumption.
% Material consumption Percentage representation of material consumption.
Capacity consumption traffic light Visual representation of capacity consumption.
% Capacity consumption Percentage representation of capacity consumption.
Feedback traffic light Visual representation of the feedback.
% Feedback Percentage representation of the feedback.
Foreign. Fert. Orders traffic light Visual representation of external work orders that already exist.
% Third party fert. Orders Percentage representation of external work orders that already exist.
Foreign. Feedback traffic light Visual representation of the feedback from the external work.
% Foreign. Feedback Percentage representation of feedback from outside work.

The traffic light symbols are to be set up via Company data > Info tab "Documents" in the fields "Red traffic light", "Yellow traffic light" and "Green traffic light".

With the function "Update cockpit" in the "Released E+D order overview" the above mentioned fields are updated.

### Article version types#

The article version types are used for the later classification of the article versions. To define them first, call up the "Article version types" via the user search.

Via "New" in the ribbon you can define a new article version type specifying the "Code" and the "Description".

### Article versions#

By means of the "Article version" you have the possibility to map the product life cycle of an article. The different versions can also be used to store different production bills of materials and routings. By assigning an "article version type", the article versions can be classified so that they can be easily distinguished from each other.

To define a new article version, call up the "Article versions" via the user search. Via "New" in the menu ribbon you can define a new article version with the help of the table below:

Field Comment
Item no. In this field, specify the item no. for which you want to create a version.
Variant code If the selected article is variant-managed, you can define the variant of the article for which you want to create a new version at this point.
Version code Specify an "abbreviation" for the article version you want to create.
Description Specify a description for the article version you want to create.
Article version type By assigning an article version type, you have the possibility to classify the article version.
Material At this point you can assign a material to the article version.
Status Indicates the status of the article version.
Three statuses are assigned at this point:

New:
The article version is currently under construction.

Certified:
The article version has a released status. No changes can be made in this status.

Expired:
The article version is no longer valid.

You can change the status via the menu ribbon by calling "New", "Certified" and "Expired".
Version Start date Specifies the start date of a version.
Drawing no. Specify a drawing number (if available) for the version.
Drawing format Specify a drawing format (if any) for the version.
Subscription index Specify a drawing index (if any) for the version.
Manufacturer code Specify a manufacturer code (if any) for the version.
Manufacturer Part No. Specify a manufacturer part number (if available) for the version.
Delivery standard Specify a delivery standard (if any) for the version.
Norm Specify a standard (if any) for the version.
Finished parts list no. Specify the finished parts list number.
Finished bill of material version code Specify the fert. bill of material version code.
Work plan no. Specify the task list number.
Routing version code Specify the routing version code.

In the procurement process, the article incl. article version can be specified. Via MRP (order planning, planning worksheet), the system proposes a production order taking the article version into account. The production data of the article version are hereby transferred to the production order.

The temporal determination of the article version takes place at

Components, production lines:
Due date
Order lines:
Expected goods receipt date
Planning suggestion:
When revising the start date, this otherwise the end date of the line.

If both are not maintained the order date

• Proposed change: due date of the order

Note

Please note that during the consumption posting, the system checks that the article version type of the consuming article matches the actual article version type to be reported.

The article version does not distinguish the stock on the article. If it is necessary to distinguish the stock on the article on the level of the article versions, the article variant can be managed in addition to the article version. In this way, the stock level is taken into account for the article variants and, consequently, also for the corresponding article version.

#### Functions in the ribbon#

##### New, Certified, Expired#

These function buttons set the article version to the status of the same name.

##### Usage#

This functionality is used to determine in which assembly/production article the component is located.

##### Structure#

Microsoft Dynamics Business Central™ uses this to display the production structure/tree structure of the production item based on the specified production BOM and routing.

##### Structure BOM#

The structure BOM is output as a report.

##### Costs of the bill of materials#

Based on the production bill of materials and the routing, the costs of the production item are calculated and output as a report.

##### Cost shares#

The costs are mapped in a tree structure as in the standard Microsoft Dynamics Business Central™.

##### Detailed calculation#

Costs are presented in the same way as in the standard Microsoft Dynamics Business Central™ Detailed Cost Estimate.

##### Bill of materials - cost share distribution#

The cost shares (material, capacity, external labor, capacity & prod. overhead) are shown graphically in a report.

## Construction + development order (E+D order)#

The design + development order is essentially a production order that is converted from a repetitive manufacturing order to a machine and plant engineering order - i.e.: design + development order - by means of a project number. The data from a production order is displayed in an E+D order as a structured BOM, which is supplemented by the following information fields:

• E+D Positions (Position Index),
• Quantities, deadline, status and change traffic light,
• Information about the demand cover and requester

Functions for the specific processing of the FA position round off the whole.

The E+D order masks exist as for a production order for the status (Simulated, Firmly planned, Released, Finished). There are separate menu items for the different statuses in the "Design & Development".

In summary, the E+D order is intended to provide a central information hub for reporting the status, processing the respective item and interacting with the upstream and downstream processes of design, work preparation, scheduling, purchasing and warehouse/logistics.

### Attachment#

There are two ways to create an E+D order:

1. You create a production order as usual, manually or via the planning worksheets. In the course of this, an E+D order is generated automatically by the system.

2. You create an E+D order manually. In the course of this, a production order is generated automatically by the system.

The status is always identical for the production order and the corresponding E+D order.

### E+D Order card#

The structure of the E+D job card is identical regardless of its status "Simulated", "Firmly planned", "Released", "Finished". Depending on the status, some functions cannot be executed.

#### Inforegister screen#

Field Comment

Locked If this identifier is active, postings (consumption and actual report) with the FA are not possible.
Corrected on The date on which the FA was last modified.

#### Inforegister lines#

##### E+D Position#

The E+D position is formed for the unique identification of individual lines. Each position in a production order is uniquely defined by the E+D position and is thus very helpful for reconciliation or for the coordination of the different departments.

Note

The E+D position has a maximum length of 30 characters, if this is exceeded, the last 3 characters of the 30 characters are displayed with "...".

Note

To determine a unique E+D item, you must maintain the fields "Stepwise E+D item no. ", "Item item separator", "Item phantom separator", "Item operation separator", "Item common parts summary" and "Item additional costs separator" in the Design & Development setup.

###### Determination of the E+D position no.#

The E+D item number is determined by the system when calculating the production order or the planning worksheets as well as when maintaining the item number.

The system proceeds with the determination as follows:

###### Production order line (producing article)#

The system fills the E+D position depending on the creation of the production order:

• Manually or via the planning worksheets, the E+D item no. is preset with the value from the Design & Development setup of the "Stepwise E+D item no. " field.
• In order planning, the E+D item no. corresponds to the item no., the sales item to be covered.
• In project planning, the E+D item no. corresponds to the project task no. of the project plan line to be covered.
###### Component#

The E+D item number corresponds to the E+D item number of the FA line + the item item separator defined in the Design + Development setup and the own item number.

###### Production order line (assembly)#

The E+D position no. of the assembly corresponds to the E+D position no. of the component to be covered.

###### Operation#

The E+D item no. corresponds to the E+D item no. of the FA line + the item operation separator defined in the Design + Development setup and the own operation number.

###### Additional costs#

The E+D position no. corresponds to the E+D position no. of the FA line + the position additional costs separator defined in the design + development setup and the own position no.

###### Equal parts summary#

In the standard system, the same parts are grouped together depending on whether the following fields match:

• Variant code
• Connection code
• Position
• Position 2
• Position 3
• Length
• Wide
• Weight
• Depth
• Unit code

If an article is used in several assemblies of a production order, the system combines them and generates a collective FA component for this article.

The E+D item no. corresponds to the E+D item no. of the FA line + the item same-part summary separator defined in the Design + Development setup and its own item number.

##### Fields#
Field Comment
E+D Position The E+D position should describe the exact installation position across all drawing levels. In the case of existing CAD integration, the position should match the designations on the CAD drawing and thus forms search information, e.g. for assembly drawings.

E+D Position Initial value:
In the "Order quantity" replenishment procedure, the E+D item is filled based on the item number of the sales line or based on the project task of the project plan line.
If no entry is found here, the step size from the Design & Development setup is assigned.

E+D Calculate position:
The calculation of the E+D position is already done in the planning worksheets and can be shown there in the field "E+D position". In addition, the field is also available in the standard FA documents.

E+D Position manual change:
A manual correction of the initial value is possible in the E+D order via Navigate\lines.
All other manual changes are called from the E+D order component/FA component.

E+D Position Forms of presentation:
In the FA components, as well as the E+D order components, the "E+D Position" is combined with the standard field "Position". Here, the field values "E+D Position" and "Position" are separated using the "Position item separator" from the "Design & Development Setup".
E+D Position Phantom levels:
Can be identified in the dispositive view with the "Position phantom separator" from the "Design & development uni". In the constructive view, the phantom layer is unfolded with its component.

E+D Contract Work Plan:
In the E+D order routing, the E+D position is formed from the operation number. A change is made in the master data and can be updated via the E+D change synchronization. The "Position operation separator" can be defined via the "Design & development setup".

Tools and personnel:
Can be managed in the secondary operations. For this purpose, the E+D position receives an additional suffix. The separator for tool and personnel is defined via the "Production setup" of the fields "Separator operation no. personnel" and "Separator operation no. tool". The numbering for personnel and tool is defined via the "Personnel basic operation no." and "Tool basic operation no." fields.

Additional costs:
In the E+D order, imputed additional costs can be stored for the FA line.

E+D Position Representation of the outsourced substructure:
By means of the "E+D Planning" function, assemblies can be outsourced to another production order.
The outsourced structure is marked in color and is dispositive or dispositive total depending on the structure explosion.

E+D Position Lookup:
From the E+D position, you can branch directly to the edit mask via an AssistEdit call.

## Execution supervision#

Execution monitoring is used to get a quick overview of the execution status of the design and development process.

For this purpose, there is the design monitoring for the master data view and the disposition monitoring for the design + development order view (E+D orders). In both monitoring functions, the scope of monitoring can be defined specifically according to articles, sales orders and E+D orders and projects in the case of MRP monitoring.

The MRP monitoring also lists the finished parts lists and operation lines, but compares these with the components and operations of the E+D order or production order. Additionally, information regarding date and quantity as well as procurement is displayed.

### Design monitoring#

Design monitoring allows you to monitor the status of your production master data. Design monitoring lists the finished parts lists and operation lines and displays their processing status.

Note

Please note that the system takes into account the inventory data, if available, when determining the data.

You can call up the "Design monitoring" via the user search.
