Application and Environment | Manufacturing
Format: Member Showcase
Modern manufacturing facilities include automated systems which capture various types of manufacturing data. But too often, this information is recorded on paper logs, then manually entered into Dynamics NAV, hours or even days later. This can cause a disconnect between the physical manufacturing processes and the inventory movements recorded. Web services offers powerful capabilities to be a part of the solution to help plant machinery communicate directly with Dynamics NAV with no human interaction, for real-time inventory and transaction recording. See how Noosa Yoghurt applied these techniques in a real-world setting to increase efficiency and data accuracy. This session will be helpful to techies and non-techies alike.
Director of Information Technology
David started his career as a Cost Accountant before discovering that his true passion was Information Technology. Since making that career transition, he's held IT leadership positions at companies in industries that include high-tech electronics manufacturing, agricultural distribution, and food/consumer products. His IT experience has been focused on business intelligence and analytics, application and web development, and system integration and architecture. Even more than technology, he's driven to build IT organizations that are focused on customer service, enterprise-level best practices, and staff development and training. He's on a one-man crusade to destroy negative I.T. stereotypes (except the one about us all loving Star Wars; that one's true).
He currently works at Noosa Yoghurt in Bellvue, Colorado. Noosa is one of the fastest growing yogurt brands in North America and has been live on NAV for about 1.5 years. David is not beneath hinting that he might bring free yogurt samples to his Summit sessions if it entices people to attend his sessions and rate them as "tasty."
David will be leading two NAV sessions at Summit 2017:
APP77: IoT for Humans - Plant Automation using Dynamics NAV Web Services at Noosa Yoghurt
APP79: Get Off My Cloud: Lessons from Changing Hosting Providers
