Food Process Manufacturing Software

Process Manufacturing for Microsoft Dynamics AX provides integrated functionality for planning and managing production and distribution, handling procurement and accounting, and complying with regulatory requirements. It manages and maintains key production information the same way you run your business - and specifically to support the unique requirements of food process manufacturers.

Process Manufacturing for Microsoft Dynamics AX supports a range of manufacturing processes, including make to order, make to stock, or mixed mode, a hybrid environment that enables both discrete and process requirements to coexist. Your company can integrate production processes to build a flexible solution that fits your needs.

Benefits of Microsoft Dynamics AX Process Manufacturing:

  • Manage materials and items with multi-dimensional inventory structures. Track and manage raw materials while taking into account the complexities of multiple inventory characteristics such as weight, container type, and expiration date. In addition, you can define, manage, and cost multiple outputs, such as co-products and by-products, from a single production process.

  • Work with simplified but flexible packaging configurations. Define a single product number and formula for all packaging configurations of an end item, dramatically simplifying product codes. A two-level formula structure enables you to maintain unique packaging components for each packaging type assigned to the main formula. Accept multiple customer orders in various packaging configurations and consolidate them into a single production batch.

  • Gain real-time insight into performance status and costs. View and manage information at the level of detail you need, when you need it. Drill down to the details of individual item availability, production activities, and employee performance so that you can match quantities and grades of product to specific customer orders, ensure on-time deliveries, and understand the financial impact of manufacturing certain co-products and by-products.

  • Respond quickly to changing market conditions. Capitalize on new opportunities and respond appropriately to changing market conditions by fine-tuning your plans, processes, packaging, and product mix. Evaluate various product mixes and production scenarios with what-if planning. By gaining insight into capacity planning and operational costs, you can adjust production or move into new markets with confidence.

  • Improve connectivity and communication. Share real-time information among the sales, planning and scheduling, quality control, delivery, and customer service departments to streamline buying, selling, and production decisions. Communicate rapidly and clearly with customers and trading partners, improving sales, customer service, and production processes.
