The Manufacturing module of Microsoft Dynamics NAV has existed for almost 17 years. A quick estimate says that around 10% of the about 100.000 installed Microsoft Dynamics NAV solutions use the Manufacturing solution. Despite this there are almost no comprehensive trainings on the subject.

The Dynamics Manufacturing academy is intended for existing users of this Dynamics module and for new one. The purpose is to process all the functionalities and options offered by the system, to process all the necessary phases and steps for the successful implementation, upgrading, maintenance and development of the manufacturing module.

These skills are a fundamental and necessary condition for quality management of the manufacturing module in the Microsoft Dynamics solution.

Goal of this training is to transfer comprehensive knowledge about the manufacturing module to all customers running the Manufacturing module and all consultants, both new and experienced, who will need to setup, maintain and develope the system.

Participants of the Dynamics manufacturing academy:

  • IT employees responsible for Dynamics ERP system and Dynamics manufacturing system.
  • Those responsible in production who cooperate with IT in the design, implementation and management of manufacturing IT solutions.
  • Consultants.
  • Developers of manufacturing solutions.

The greatest benefits from the academy are gained by participants who already use the Dynamics manufacturing solution, but have open questions, bottlenecks, problems and dilemmas regarding the appropriateness of the solution development and further steps.

The academy runs on a system of lectures and exercises. 50% are exercises in a laboratory environment.
The author of the book Manufacturing with Microsoft Dynamics NAV, at the academy, he processes the entire content of the book with the students and performs laboratory exercises for all substantive parts.

Secton one (one day) contains:

  • Introduction to the Manufacturing module
  • Manufacturing Setup and system setup related to the manufacturing module
  • Planning

Section two (two days) contains:

  • Item setup
  • Bills-of-materials
  • Capacities
  • Routings
  • Families

Author's books about Dynamics manufacturing

(all students get books at the academy)


I am a solution architect and senior developer stationed in Denmark, implementing solutions all-over the world, specializing in advanced manufacturing combined with master data replication and Intercompany solutions.

I first saw Navision in 1984 at the beta testing program of PcPlus. I started implementing manufacturing solutions in 1983 on IBM S/36 systems. Since the Dynamics NAV manufacturing module was released, I have implemented at least 50 Manufacturing solutions in all kinds of different businesses. Starting as an accountant in a production company and moving on to implementing systems, I have both the accounting, the development and the implementation background.

As a Microsoft Certified Trainer, I have conducted courses the last 10 years in topics like Dynamics NAV programming, installation, finance, trade, warehouse management and manufacturing. During the 10 years, I have had around 150 courses with at least 800 participants in 14 countries. I maintain a blog in where I writes about both programming, installation and application topics. Usually topics discussed during courses or customer implementations.
