Skills are a basic building block for resource scheduling. General resource skills can be assigned using the standard Skills feature in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, and can be used when creating skill sets. Manufacturing Skills specify what skills a resource has and what skills are required for production resource scheduling.
