Multi companies process

Hi all!

I would like to have some inputs here about this scenario:

I have a customer who actually have several companies: A, B, C, D, E, F and may buy more .

Company A is the Parent company where all financial statements ( 6 actually ) of all sisters companies can be done.

Company B has 3 divisions in 3 differents sites . Activities that are done are: Selling; Purchasing; holds inventory also for the other companies ( other divisions )

Company C has 4 divisions in 3 differents sites . Activities that are done are: Manufacturing ( MRP ) ; Selling; Purchasing; holds inventory also for the other companies ( other divisions ). MRP must be able to fulfill demand of the other company who are selling goods.

Company D has only 1 site and manage equipment that are rented to the other companies ( other divisions)

Companies E and F are US Companies that are doing Manufacturing and Distribution , each company has its own inventory.

My questions:

  • How can I setup those companies in NAV to be able to simplify and run my processes?? I thing of using dimensions; SKU and locations. locations

  • The target here for my client is to ultimately has: Only 1 company that invoice all orders but also keep invoicing in each company .

  • Possibility to see inventory globally so sell can be done base on stock availability.

Any advices will be more than appreciated.

Thanks

Use InterCompany functioanlity of NAV, of course you will have to do customizations to cater to this requirement.

Hi,

We have a customer with a similar scenario. 1 Consolitated + several companies + several interco transactions.

Check this document:

Mostly sales stuff but still nice info.

If you have access to Partner Source, check this white paper on NAV’s Interco. It’s tagged as NAV 4.0 but there’s nothing new since that version:

This is a nice demo Script that might help you out too:

Hope this help!
