Manufacturing Experience/References Needed !!!

    We are looking for a couple of manufacturing based users of D365 who would be willing to share their experience with us!

    First, a little bit about HBD.  We have 3 main manufacturing groups; rubber products, power transmission and precision components, with roughly a dozen plants all within the continental US.  Each of these plants were once independent and each runs a unique ERP software.  We are implementing D365 at each one individually and sticking to a "vanilla out-of-the-box solution" as much as possible.  Not that we are necessarily opposed to ISV options, but we are avoiding custom code.

    Our implementation team is small but mighty and each plant brings new challenges such as labor tracking & trace-ability nuances, incorporation of drawings & work instructions, along with continued training & improvement at locations already live on D365, etc, etc, etc.  While we are busy wading through these puzzles, our leadership team has questions about how other manufacturing companies are handling some of these same issues.

    Regardless of your stage of implementation, please let me know if you'd be willing to set up a call or an in person meeting to bounce around some ideas and compare what's working vs what challenges we're both facing.
