In a demanding international market environment, modern manufacturing companies can no longer ignore technologies that can help them control their processes for product design, inventory management, resource management, production planning and process optimisation flexibly and reliably. For large organisational structures spanning multiple sites or countries in particular, additional requirements often arise from a mixture of methods such as discrete manufacturing, process manufacturing and lean manufacturing. Microsoft Dynamics AX (formerly Axapta) provides you with a comprehensive set of functionalities to help you overcome your individual challenges in the global production environment.
As an end-to-end corporate solution, Microsoft Dynamics AX offers you many tools designed specifically for businesses with production and supply chain management processes. With functions for planning production, demand and procurement, operation and machine control as well as tools for product configuration, the system supports you to efficiently control your production and optimise your supply chain.
With Microsoft Dynamics AX, you can easily integrate and automate your processes. The module allows you to reduce stock levels and shorten lead times, order cycles and time to market. Functions for demand and procurement planning as well as management of third-party work improves the utilisation of systems, staff and resources. The solution increases the speed and profitability of your production and your material flow with integrated, multi-level and quantity-based bills of material, variable bills of operation and precise BOM calculation. If you need customised production, you can automate configuration of individual products and in this way offer profitable custom-made products. The Microsoft Dynamics AX product generator supports this by allowing you to conveniently create new product models for individual customer orders via drag & drop.
To be able to quickly and reliably respond to all requirements, the employees of manufacturing companies today need real-time access to the relevant information and tools for them — in the office, directly at the production site and anywhere in the world. Microsoft Dynamics AX offers you exactly these possibilities and provides a central control point for your production processes to facilitate the global allocation of resources for orders and processes. No matter whether on smartphone, tablet or PC — your employees receive access to exactly the information they need for their work at any time and in almost any location.
