Chapter 10: Application Design

In Microsoft Dynamics NAV, technology and functionality go hand in hand. It is impossible to design a good change or enhancement to the application without thorough knowledge of how the standard pieces fit together. With this knowledge now available, we can start designing our own applications.

In this book, we talked about application design for Microsoft Dynamics NAV. We discussed the design patterns, how it works, and why it works that way. We designed several small and large changes to the system both in detailed examples and on a conceptual level.

For this chapter, we will fit all the pieces together that we have learned in this book and turn them into concepts for good application design.

We will also discuss how to approach a Microsoft Dynamics NAV implementation project and how to maintain the application. This requires a different approach depending on the level of customization the project contains.
