Maybe I was expecting something else. Examples are useful to get a big idea of possibilities. Explanations are short and clear, somewhat poor. Fair as a reference book. Good for consultants and sellers of MS Navision. Not as good for supply chain manager of one specific company implementing Navision. Very good price for what it is offered. Highly recommended to get first contact with the way MS Nav helps to manage the supply chain. Good appendix: useful to handle MS Nav terminology.

This book is indispensable for all Navision manufacturing consultants and sales people...
I've bought copies for our clients and have told them that if they read this book thoroughly they too could become Navision manufacturing consultants.
For the prospective Navision buyer it will help them understand just how effective the product will be for their company. A few hours invested by salespeople in reading this book could increase their bookings significantly.
The case studies (never present in manuals) allow the concepts to come alive and stimulate us to understand how we can apply them to our own supply chain workplace. The concepts themselves are first placed in the book's framework and then explained in straightforward language free of sophomoric jargon.
It offers a holistic view of the interrelationship of manufacturing, E-commerce, relationship management, service management and accounting. Manufacturing is seen not as an island unto itself but as just one of the many determinants of the entire DNA structure of the supply chain. We understand that what happens even in one part of the process will reverberate throughout the entire structure.
Does a better job in explaining the Navision in several hundred pages than the lengthier manuals...Even manufacturing neophytes will come away with competency.

If you know anything about MRP or you have the instructions that come with Navision, then dont buy this book.

This is a lame rehash of basic instructions on what the individuial fields are and has little or no explination on how to put it all together.

It has no advnced ideas on how to improve the use of Navision.

Scott Hamilton has copied the help files on field names and then put them in a book. There are small sections on how a company may use a section, however these are around six lines of vague text, not of use to anyone.

Basicaly it is a dictionary. The help that come with Navision are of more use.

Unfortunatley I purchased this one, however you may benefit by looking elsewhere for another option.

This book provides a light weight overview of the business processes within a standard supply chain environment. It does little to explain the power of Microsoft NAV (formerly Navision). Microsoft Dynamics NAV is a very powerful software platform and I was hoping that this book would provide more insights to leveraging the strengths of the software.

If you are a complete novice to supply chain and have zero exposure to NAV, then this book is a good first read. If you are familiar with supply chain and any supporting software product, then this book will likely fall short.

The leading world-famed guru in automation of business-processes Scott Hamilton shows us the tendencies and problems of ERP-market. May be he is not so popular as his colleagues - marketing and management experts. But the concept of ERP penetrated in our life not long ago and the professor Scott Hamilton has been investigating ERP10 years more than this term exists. His fundamental knowledge and large experience are priceless. And he is sharing them with the readers openly.

If you are a Navision Expert then this is not the right book for you. However, if you are planning an ERP change in your company and want to understand the basic principles behind Navision and how it can help you in day to day supply chain planning and execution, this is a must have. Scott is an expert in both Navision and making it understandable across the organization.
