Asset Management on Microsoft Dynamics®

Enterprise Asset Management versus Asset Management on Microsoft Dynamics® 365 for Finance and Operations

In November 2018, we were proud to announce that Microsoft acquired the rights to Dynaway Enterprise Asset Management (EAM), which will be part of the standard package of Microsoft Dynamics 365.

This article will give you an overview of the changes in functionality from Dynaway EAM to Asset Management on Microsoft Dynamics® 365 for Finance and Operations. The following shows you a list of changes regarding features and functionality.


1. Functionality removed


The following features and functionality, which are included in Dynaway EAM, have been removed from Asset
Management:

  • Asset service management (ASM), which includes the removal of customers, contact information on work orders, and contract management.
  • Project setup for objects/assets. In Asset Management, you can set up projects for work orders, which are similar to object projects.
  • Warranty types and warranty lines (previously a part of ASM).
  • Item ID on objects/assets. In Dynaway EAM, this is used to create a relation between an object and an item (inventory items). In Asset Management, assets cannot be related to inventory items.
  • BOM ID on objects/assets. In Dynaway EAM, this is used on an object, as a reference to a BOM. In Asset Management, this functionality is replaced by Asset BOM (Asset Management > Inquiries > Assets > Asset BOM).
  • Operations logs. Refer to the "Operations logs" chapter in the Dynaway Enterprise Asset Management Training Material to learn more about this feature.
  • Runnable jobs (previously used for data upgrade).
