Microsoft’s latest updates to Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management will be delivered to market from April to September this year.  

With a focus on optimising and enhancing business processes, this phased release will be referred to as wave 1, and will demonstrate investment into Copilot and AI innovation, inventory and logistics, planning, procurement, product information management, and warehouse management. 

Here’s everything you can expect to see in wave 1:

  • Manufacturers that rely on fast capable-to-promise (CTP) for sales orders will be able to calculate CTP without waiting for the next full master planning run to complete. 

  • Improved supply planning collaboration will enable planners and sellers to work on the same master plan at the same time. 

  • A new and efficient warehouse returns process will allow goods to be inspected on return from customers, blind receipts, putaway of inventory for resale or scrapped for disposal, carrier return labels, and automatic creation of return orders directly from the Warehouse Management mobile app. 

  • General availability of warehouse-only mode will allow companies to use the warehouse management capabilities of Supply Chain Management on their own, without needing to configure the rest of the system. 

  • External systems will be allowed to easily query future inventory availability for up to 180 days, with available to promise (ATP) powered by the Inventory Visibility service. 

  • A new Inventory Visibility API will allow you to aggregate and synchronise external inventory changes into Supply Chain Management as adjustment journals. 

  • The Inventory Visibility service will be able to be utilised to query, post, and reserve inventory without having to specify site or warehouse. 

  • Users responsible for approving purchase requisitions and purchase orders will be able to respond to approval workflow tasks directly from mobile devices. 

  • Copilot skills in Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management will transform users' daily tasks. The features will be embedded right into the user experience and include context awareness, actionable guidance, data inquiry, report generation, and taking the next best action. 

  • Copilot in the Demand planning app will close the skills gap for planners by providing AI-driven guidance and enabling accurate forecasting. 

  • The Demand planning app will become generally available with improvements to external signals, row-level access, time-fences, analytics and insights, rolling plans, new product introductions, and end of lifecycle.
