QMS in D365 - What can it do / what cant it do?

  • 1.  QMS in D365 - What can it do / what cant it do?

    Posted Aug 16, 2019 09:53 AM
    My company is looking for a solution to help them track product defects, periodic inspections of materials (raw, sub assembly, and finished goods) certifications, and information on who did what on a particular production order.

    The common thought is that this could done in QMS in D365 but I have not heard from anyone who is using QMS for other than defect tracking and RMA's.

    Any guidance or documentation that any one has about QMS for D365 would be very helpful.

    Thanks.

    Hi Erik,

    We use a heavily modified version of QMS in our AX 2012 R2 ​version of Dynamics and are in the process of implementing D365 in one of our facilities in Ohio.  For this facility, we are planning to implement base QMS (with a few modifications) along with ERP Solutions.  So we're pretty familiar with the functionality of base AX/D365 QMS along with what ERP Solutions can do for you.  I'd be happy to help answer any specific questions you have.

    Hi,

    The OOB D365 is pretty similar to AX2012. It does allow you to keep track of defects, create certificates of analysis and you can define all the tests that will apply for all products, a specific item or a group of them, you can set up the test instruments that you use and define variables, as well as expected outcomes and if the result is correct or error.
    For raw materials you can set up an automatic quality order when you purchase them or when you transfer them to the production floor, it will depend on when they'd like to do it.
    for production, both options are possible (sub-assemblies and FGs)
    For sub-assemblies, you can specify which specific operation or resource (machine or human resource) you want the quality order to be created.

    Same happens with Finished goods, it can trigger QOs before or after reporting as finished.

    We ended up implementing a third party SaaS product called eQMS.  AX natively just did not have the capabilities we wanted for FDA, Validations, Measurement tracking, etc.  We do use Quality Orders and Quarantine functionality inside AX to control the movement of inventory but everything else is outside.  This is one area AX community could benefit from a tightly integrated and configurable product.
