After installing this app please get in contact with us in order to receive your personal access for our planning service.

1.1 The Smart Stock System

SNC Smart Stock provides you with functionalities to calculate master data and purchase planning proposals and to view the results in tabular and graphical form. The calculations themselves are performed in the SNC Smart Stock system, which is operated by SIEVERS-GROUP outside of Business Central. In order to use the functionalities of the system, your Business Central application must be connected to the system. This is described in the section Initial Setup. There you also set up a job in the job queue through which the planning process can be performed automatically.

Once the initial setup is done, prepare the items and item categories for use with Smart Stock. This step is described in Set up stock keeping and master data. You can then perform the first Planning. The planned purchase orders are then converted to purchase orders.

Now it is sufficient for the buyer to look into the planning worksheets after the execution of the task queue item and from there create the planned purchase orders.

1.1.1 Calculation

SNC SmartStock does not only use its own fields - which can be found for example under Planning parameters - to calculate the planning proposals. Standard fields from Business Central are also taken into account.
