    • Chapter 1: Set Up a Company with the RIM ToolkitCHAPTER 1: SET UP A COMPANY WITH THE RIMTOOLKITObjectives The objectives are: • Explain the dependencies between RIM and manual setup work • Introduce the different components and processes of the RIM toolkit • Explain and demonstrate all tasks in a RIM process • Create a setup questionnaire • Initialize a new company with a new setup questionnaire • Create data templates • Migrate customer dataIntroduction The Microsoft Dynamics® NAV Rapid Implementation Methodology (RIM) Toolkit helps to meet the needs of Microsoft partners responsible for creating, setting up, and initializing new installations of Microsoft Dynamics NAV. The RIM toolkit increases the speed and quality of those implementation steps and complements the Microsoft Dynamics Sure Step methodology efforts towards quick-to-market offerings. Those in charge of application setup are provided with the the tools to set up a new company using the RIM toolkit in addition to creating new records based on RIM data templates. The RIM toolkit helps users set up a new company with setup values and master data records, not transaction entries. Any transaction entries that the customer wants to carry to the new database must be posted with the relevant journals.

    • Application Setup in Microsoft Dynamics® NAV 2009Manual Setup vs. RIM The RIM toolkit is an integral part of Microsoft Dynamics NAV and is recommended as the quickest and most stable way to create and initialize a new installation. However, some setup is not made by the RIM tool and most setup work is performed as ongoing maintenance of a running application by an internal or external administrator or super user. Application Setup training therefore covers both RIM and selected manual setup tasks. The RIM toolkit helps to prepare a new Microsoft Dynamics NAV company with default setup data before the customers legacy data is migrated into the database. This preset default setup is based on typical needs of the industry type selected upon import, and as such, the default setup data may not fully meet the customers needs. This will vary with the complexity and maturity of the company where the product is being implemented. For example, an advanced manufacturing company with ten years in business will require more manual setup in addition to the default RIM data, whereas a small and young company can perhaps use the default setup exactly as prepared by the RIM tool. Some categories of setup data are not included in the RIM toolkit because they are too specialized to justify a default. Such setup data must be created manually. Examples of setup data that is not created by the RIM toolkit include: • Journal templates • Dimensions • Location codes and salespeople codes • City, post code, and territory • Users Note that the list of non-RIM areas that must be set up manually are not necessarily complex and therefore may not be included in the Application Setup training.1-2 Microsoft Official Training Materials for Microsoft Dynamics ® Your use of this content is subject to your current services agreement
    • Chapter 1: Set Up a Company with the RIM ToolkitRIM Toolkit Overview The purpose of the RIM toolkit is to reduce implementation time by: • Following the project schedule template • Importing industry-specific datasets • Defining system setup in an industry-specific setup questionnaire (Microsoft® Office Excel®) and importing it into Microsoft Dynamics NAV • Simplifying the import and creation of data with data templates • Migrating customer data by importing from XML or Excel • Validating migration data prior to applying them to the database • Reducing the need for high-skilled users in the initial implementation phase The components of the RIM toolkit are the following: • Project schedule • Setup questionnaire • Industry-specific setup data • Data templates • Data migration FIGURE 1.1 IMPLEMENTATION ELEMENTS OF RIM Microsoft Official Training Materials for Microsoft Dynamics ® 1-3 Your use of this content is subject to your current services agreement
    • Application Setup in Microsoft Dynamics® NAV 2009 Project Schedule The RIM toolkit contains a default project schedule for a Microsoft Dynamics NAV implementation. This project schedule draws on the extensive experience of Microsoft Dynamics NAV partners to help ensure that every step in the process is clearly understood before the implementation begins. FIGURE 1.2 PROJECT SCHEDULE TEMPLATE SHOWING THE 2-5-2 DEPLOY PHASE The template, which is in the product CD, is a starting point to develop a real plan based on the specifics of a particular implementation. While tasks can be added and deleted, users must review the template in detail because it covers the key areas across a wide range of functions. The template plan is geared toward having the system up and running in nine working days: • Two days of preparation o Day One - Knowledge transfer from the sales process o Day Two - First meeting with customer • Five days of implementation (in cooperation with super user and end users) o Day Three - Kickoff o Day Four - Customers and vendors o Day Five - Inventory o Day Six - General Ledger o Day Seven - Sales/Receivables and Purchases/Payables1-4 Microsoft Official Training Materials for Microsoft Dynamics ® Your use of this content is subject to your current services agreement
    • Chapter 1: Set Up a Company with the RIM Toolkit • Two days of deployment and follow-up o Day Eight - Internal follow-up o Day Nine - External follow-up at the customer site (with all users) Setup Questionnaire In addition to the project schedule template, the RIM toolkit includes the setup questionnaire. The setup questionnaire helps reduce the implementation workload by streamlining the task of setting up the new system. FIGURE 1.3 SETUP QUESTIONNAIRE PROCESS FLOW The setup questionnaire is generated in Microsoft Dynamics NAV by the consultant and then provided to the customer as an Excel or XML file. There is one questionnaire for each industry segment. Each questionnaire covers the same ten setup tables, but the default values in the questionnaires vary with the industry type. Note that all default values can be changed in a questionnaire to match customer needs more specifically. When the user has finished answering the questions, the questionnaire file is imported into the customers new Microsoft Dynamics NAV company, which is created based on industry-specific data templates matching the questionnaire (refer to the "Use Data Templates" lesson in this course for more details). The consultant and the customer validate the questionnaire answers before they are applied to the database. After a few hours, the system is set up without the user working directly in the database and with only a minimum of consultancy assistance. The following is an example of how the setup questionnaire works. On the General Ledger Setup sheet of the setup questionnaire in Excel, the following statement appears: "If you wish to limit the date interval in which posting is allowed, please enter the from date here." Microsoft Official Training Materials for Microsoft Dynamics ® 1-5Your use of this content is subject to your current services agreement
    • Application Setup in Microsoft Dynamics® NAV 2009 The customer will enter a date in the Answer field, and when the import and review process is complete in Microsoft Dynamics NAV, this date will be applied in the Allow Posting From field in the General Ledger Setup page. FIGURE 1.4 GENERAL LEDGER SETUP TABLE FILLED IN VIA QUESTIONNAIRE Notice that the Excel file has a sheet for each included setup table. If your implementation project requires special system setup, you can build your own partner-specific setup questionnaires to apply exactly to your type of customers.

()8 ( ) 12 ()9 ( ) 10 Industry-Specific Setup Data Every time a new Microsoft Dynamics NAV solution is implemented, the companys employees must learn and understand how to enter data. This requires both end user training and the time necessary to enter new data. To save implementation time and cost, five sets of industry-specific setup data exists as XML files in the client installation. When a new company is created, one of the five company types is selected and all basic setup data and matching data templates are imported to the database. FIGURE 1.5 LIST OF INDUSTRY-SPECIFIC XML FILES WITH SETUP DATA Microsoft Official Training Materials for Microsoft Dynamics ® 1-7Your use of this content is subject to your current services agreement
    • Application Setup in Microsoft Dynamics® NAV 2009 For example, during the creation of a new company, table 308, No. Series, and table 309, No. Series Line, will be filled with number series and starting numbers for all documents relevant to the eight covered setup tables. The corresponding No. Series fields on the setup tables will also be filled automatically. This means that the tedious work of typing number series and other basic setup data is not necessary. Note that all default data created during RIM processes can be changed manually. The RIM toolkit contains the following industry-specific xml files (company types): • Food.xml • Furniture.xml • HighTech.xml • Machinery.xml • WholeSale.xml Each file contains data that is imported into the Microsoft Dynamics NAV company during the creation of a new company. The data in each file are: • A set of industry-specific setup questionnaires (to capture basic setup) • A set of industry-specific data (to be selected as setup values) • A set of industry-specific data templates (to structure migration data) FIGURE 1.6 FOOD-SPECIFIC DATA TEMPLATE1-8 Microsoft Official Training Materials for Microsoft Dynamics ® Your use of this content is subject to your current services agreement
    • Chapter 1: Set Up a Company with the RIM Toolkit The image shows an imported data template specific to a type 2 item in the Food industry. Notice that the general product posting group for this particular item template is Cheese. That posting group code is selected from default posting group datasets for different food categories. These general product posting groups are imported with the selection of the Food company type. If your implementation project requires special datasets, you can build your own partner-specific data to apply exactly to your type of customers. Data Templates When a new master data record, such as an item card, is created in Microsoft Dynamics NAV, some of the fields are mandatory and must be filled in. Most mandatory fields, such as posting groups and payment terms, can be grouped in typical types to ease and stabilize the creation of master data records. For example, mandatory fields for table 18, Customer, can be grouped as Domestic, Foreign, or Export types. Whether created manually or through migration with a RIM process, core master data records can be created based on data templates. Data templates are designed to support the customers business processes to optimally use the functionality of Microsoft Dynamics NAV and to make it simpler for users to create records in their daily work. FIGURE 1.7 MASTER DATA TEMPLATES FROM THE FOOD INDUSTRY IMPORT Microsoft Official Training Materials for Microsoft Dynamics ® 1-9Your use of this content is subject to your current services agreement
    • Application Setup in Microsoft Dynamics® NAV 2009 In the standard product, data templates exist for the following master data tables: • Contact • Customer • Item • Vendor • G/L Account However, with little customization, the template structure can be applied to any relevant master data table in Microsoft Dynamics NAV. Data templates are an integral part of migrating data into Microsoft Dynamics NAV. However, data templates can also be used in daily operations to create new records based on templates (for the supported master data tables only). For example, when creating a new customer card, the user can click Apply Template on the Action Pane and then select the appropriate template from the list. FIGURE 1.8 CREATING A NEW CUSTOMER CARD BASED ON A DATA TEMPLATE The data templates support the following two business scenarios: • Migration from a legacy system (using the RIM processes) • Daily operation (using the Apply Template function in selected cards)1-10 Microsoft Official Training Materials for Microsoft Dynamics ® Your use of this content is subject to your current services agreement
    • Chapter 1: Set Up a Company with the RIM Toolkit When migration data, such as item number and description, is imported in a migration file, which is linked to a data template, the outstanding mandatory field data is collected from the data template. When users create a new item, they only have to enter general information such as item number and description and then collect the rest of the mandatory field data from a selected data template. Data Migration Most Microsoft Dynamics NAV implementations face the task of getting the customer legacy data moved from the old system into Microsoft Dynamics NAV. This can be done automatically through dataports or manually by entering data. FIGURE 1.9 DEFINING CUSTOMER TABLE FIELDS TO BE MIGRATED The Migration Overview page provides an overview of all tables and fields that exist or will exist in the new database, in addition to functions and views to perform all the final RIM tasks relating to data migration. The tasks are as follows: • Prepare and export migration files • Import and validate migration data • Apply migration data to the database Microsoft Official Training Materials for Microsoft Dynamics ® 1-11Your use of this content is subject to your current services agreement
    • Application Setup in Microsoft Dynamics® NAV 2009 Prepare the needed tables and fields in the Migration Overview page and then export these to an Excel or XML file in which the customer captures legacy data, either by manual entry or transfer. The structured migration data is then imported back into the Microsoft Dynamics NAV company where it is validated before being applied to the new database. Partner-Specific Datasets If you often use the RIM toolkit and feel that the included standard XML files are lacking specific (for example, vertical) datasets, you can create your own specific XML files to be used with the RIM toolkit. Follow these steps to create partner-specific datasets to be used with RIM: 1. Use a blank Microsoft Dynamics NAV database. 2. Create a new company for each vertical dataset. 3. Import the standard datasets into each company. 4. Edit/Change/Add the Setup questionnaire. 5. Edit/Change/Add data (post codes, data templates, tables). 6. Define the new datasets in the Migration Overview page. 7. Create (export) your partner-specific datasets as XML files. Test Your Knowledge: RIM Toolkit Overview Fill in the blanks to test your knowledge of this section. 1. The industry-specific setup data file is a _________ of basic data. 2. Data _________ are designed to apply to any table in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV database. 3. The Migration Overview page allows you to ________ data before applying it to the Microsoft Dynamics tables. 4.

    • Chapter 1: Set Up a Company with the RIM Toolkit Assess Default Data Migration Files The first task in data migration is to evaluate if the default data migration files are sufficient for the customer. If the default data migration files are sufficient, you can proceed to export the data migration files to XML or Excel using either of the default migration files. If the default migration files are not sufficient, you must create one or more new data migration files (lines in the Migration Overview page). FIGURE 1.14 OVERVIEW OF DEFAULT MIGRATION FILES The Customer table is not included in the list of default migration files, and you must therefore create this to migrate your customers existing customer information. Demonstration: Create New Data Migration Files Scenario: The New Food Company has customer information that must be migrated to the new company. As their consultant, Simon must create the Customer migration file to export it and then capture the customer information.

    • Chapter 1: Set Up a Company with the RIM Toolkit The Excel file is created at the specified position. It contains empty cells for the selected four fields in the Customer table, ready to be filled by the customer. Steps: Enter Migration Data Follow these steps to enter the customer information in the Excel file: 1. Open the New Food Company Migration Customer.xls file. 2. Explain to the customer how to fill out the worksheets. The following methods can be used: o Method 1: Enter all customer data by filling out the fields cell by cell. o Method 2: Copy all customer information to Sheet1, and then make an Excel formula (=Sheet1!A1) between the fields in the Customer sheet and the fields in Sheet1. Since customer legacy data is probably not organized like in Microsoft Dynamics NAV, this is the recommended method. 3. For the purpose of this demonstration, type values manually in the dedicated cells in the Customer sheet of the Excel file as follows: o On row 4: 1, Elkhorn Airport, 105 Buffalo Dr., 2 o On row 5: 2, Selangorian Ltd., 153 Thomas Drive, 3 FIGURE 1.15 TWO LINES OF CUSTOMER DATA ENTERED IN THE EXPORTED DATA MIGRATION FILE (EIGHT FIELDS ONLY) 4.

Data from the migration file is now imported into migration table 18, Customer. In the Migration Overview page, the No. of Migration Errors field shows that two imported records have errors. These must be resolved in the validation task. Demonstration: Validate and Apply Migration Data Scenario: The imported migration file contains two errors. Simon investigates the errors and discovers that the Salesperson codes, 2 and 3, cannot be migrated to the customer card because they are not part of a list of salesperson codes already in the database. Salesperson codes must first be migrated into the database in a similar process. This applies to most setup data of type Code. Simon discusses this with the customer, who decides not to import the codes at this time because they are in the process of changing those codes. Simon deletes the codes from the Migration Record page and then completes the migration process by applying the imported data. Steps: Validate Migration Data If imported migration records have errors, resolve them before applying the invalid records to the database. Note that in most cases, the invalid data is simply not created in the database, but in some cases, the application is blocked if a migration record has errors. Migration records with errors are "quarantined," indicated by the check mark in the Invalid field in the Migration Records page.1-32 Microsoft Official Training Materials for Microsoft Dynamics ® Your use of this content is subject to your current services agreement

With the RIM toolkit, companies can utilize the project schedule as a best- practice template for implementation projects, and the setup questionnaire to capture and import customers business setup. New companies are created on the basis of industry-specific default data and templates to ensure that imported data supplements predefined setup tables. Using the RIM toolkit as intended enables companies to have a new Microsoft Dynamics NAV system up and running in nine days, and the cost is greatly reduced because automation replaces manual consultancy tasks. Refer to the RIM White Paper on PartnerSource for more strategic information about this methodology and how it relates to the Microsoft Sure Step initiative.
