Food Commodity Management for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central
In Food Commodity Management, you enter customer receipts through commodity manifests, which enable you to combine purchases from multiple vendors into a single amount, post the manifest to receive this combined amount into inventory, and generate purchase orders for each vendor.
Providing a structure for costing items, commodity classes incorporate cost components with associated cost factors, assigned to cost periods. When you enter new cost factors, Food Commodity Management uses these associated cost components to determine the costs of commodity trading within a cost period.
You can use the advance payment capability to determine payments for open purchase orders and initiate partial payments to vendors even before all cost factors have been determined.
Food Quality Control integration
The cost components in Food Commodity Management integrate closely with Food Quality Control, making it easy to include quality test results when you calculate the cost of commodities.
