A company implements Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management and configures the system to support process manufacturing.
The company manufactures pain-relieving lotions. Several of the primary ingredients are delivered at different concentrations depending on the ingredient and vendor ingredient A is the primary active ingredient in the lotion. IngredientB is used as a compensating ingredient.
You need to ensure that the system is set up to support the manufacturing process.
Solution: Create a dimension-based product master with variants and use the trade agreements to specify the different pricing.
Does the solution meet the goal?
The solution does not meet the goal. Here is the explanation:
Create a product master for the lotion and release it to the relevant legal entities. On the Product dimension groups page, select Constraint-based configuration as the configuration technology, and select the configuration dimension. On the Released product details page, select Configurable on the Engineer tab.
Create a constraint-based product configuration model for the lotion and add it as a version to the product master. On the Constraint-based product configuration model details page, add attributes, constraints, subcomponents, BOM lines, and route operations to define the features and structure of the lotion. For example, you can add an attribute for ingredient A and specify its concentration as a value. You can also add constraints to limit the combinations of attribute values that are allowed.
Create a price model for the lotion and link it to the product configuration model. On the Price models page, add price components and specify how they are calculated based on attributes, subcomponents, BOM lines, or route operations. For example, you can add a price component for ingredient A and specify different prices for different concentrations.
Configure products on sales orders, sales quotations, purchase orders, or production orders by using the Product configuration models page. You can select values for attributes and see how they affect the price of the lotion. You can also view the price details and see how each price component contributes to the total price.
The solution in the question is not correct, because it does not involve constraint-based product configuration or price models. Creating a dimension-based product master with variants and using trade agreements to specify different pricing would not allow you to handle different concentrations of ingredients or calculate prices based on attributes.
