New! MB-335 Supply Chain Management Functional Consultant Expert

Exam MB 335 Microsoft Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management Functional Consultant Expert

Microsoft has recently announced that the new Microsoft Certified: Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management Functional Consultant Expert certification, together with the accompanying MB-335 exam, is now available.

This brand-new certification is aimed at expert or senior supply chain functional consultants, senior or principal functional consultants for Microsoft partners, as well as expert IT professionals, developers, or information workers. This certification is right for you if you have plenty of experience implementing and configuring the advanced features of D365 Supply Chain Management.

Microsoft has developed this certification to closely align with roles and responsibilities in the real world and provides supply chain consultants with the opportunity to have their skillset formally recognized on a certification path.

How to earn the certification MB 335 Microsoft Certified Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management Functional Consultant Expert

Microsoft states:  “Candidates for this exam are expert or senior supply chain functional consultants who implement and configure advanced features of Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management to meet the requirements of a business. They have an advanced knowledge of supply chain management operations, including production, logistics, master planning, and asset management. The candidate will identify use cases for applying mixed reality.”

The prerequisites for achieving this certification include passing Exam MB-330: Microsoft Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management Functional Consultant, as well as passing the exam MB-335 Microsoft Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management Functional Consultant Expert exam. Note indeed that you are not required to pass the MB-300 Core; probably a sigh of relief here and there, as not all functional consultants appreciate the full MB-300 Core content with some quite technical areas.
