Best for You Organics Company started as a home-based business The founders began making handmade soaps and bath products in their kitchen. As sales increased, the business established a production facility and distribution center that supplies three retail stores.
Soaps and bath products are manufactured in the production facility and are stocked in the warehouse for distribution to the retail stores. Employees at retail stores use mobile point of sale (MPOS) tablet devices to sell the products to customers.
The company structure is a single legal entity with two sites as shown in the diagram below:
Best for You Organics plans to introduce a new product line of face creams. Each product in the new line uses the same base ingredients but includes a different extract (for example, lime, avocado, kiwi). The marketing department is preparing to introduce the new product line. Minimal inventory will be held in the warehouse.
The company uses a cloud-based deployment of Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management to manage finances for all company operations and locations. The company does not use Bill of Materials (BOM) versioning.
The production and warehouse facility is set up with the following organizational hierarchy:
External customers include:
– CustomerA: a wall-in store customer (business-to-consumer)
– CustomerB: a customer with an existing account (business-to-business)
External vendors include:
– VendorA: a trucking company
– VendorB: a raw materials supplier
The new product line must be set up in the system and readily available for sale when the company introduces the product line to the public at an upcoming trade show.
You must configure the system to produce the new products:
