Reduce time to market and respond quickly to changing customer demands with Microsoft Dynamics AX Production. Real-time insight into business and supply chain information—including inventory, warehouse, and production—helps you optimize production flow by planning effectively, maximizing resource utilization, driving accurate delivery performance, and streamlining business processes.

With Microsoft Dynamics AX Production, your people can plan production to meet exacting schedules and delivery demands. Track inventory levels and plan delivery routing with flexibility and control. Access logistics, trade, and customer relationship management (CRM) data to plan orders for purchase, production, and transfer, and help minimize inventory levels, meet customer requirements, and provide reliable promises for delivery. Plan production sites using multi-site capabilities to maintain various production units for planning and execution.

Benefits of Microsoft Dynamics AX Production:

  • Manage production in a demand-driven environment. View real-time, integrated work in progress (WIP) with actual costs; make adjustments to avoid potential delays or cost overruns; and streamline inventory management based on demand and forecasting.

  • Anticipate and reduce bottlenecks. Gain tight control over every aspect of the production floor with bottleneck scheduling. Quickly view processes and work utilization as a whole with a Gantt chart and use drag-and-drop rescheduling to minimize delays.

  • Gain deep insight across the supply chain. With visibility throughout the entire supply chain, you can streamline business processes, optimize resources, minimize lead times, and identify accurate delivery dates.

  • Improve control of production processes. Define manufacturing resources, including machines, people, tools, and subcontractors, and allocate them to work center groups. Tightly control schedules by using finite or infinite capacity scheduling for maximum flexibility.

Enhance process efficiencies with specialized Role Centers that help organize relevant tasks, information, and tools in a personalized view so people can manage their work easily. People on the shop floor can access real-time, detailed information, including time used and the raw materials consumed for individual jobs or operations. Production managers can easily gain the business insight they need using business analytics, including detailed reports for lead time, defect ratio, capacity utilization, and planned versus actual consumption.
