Three Ways Microsoft Dynamics AX Streamlines Process Manufacturing


Email | Print

Process manufacturing is a unique vertical market that is unlike traditional manufacturing because companies in this niche process liquids, chemicals, and fine blended ingredients. Usually the inventory is combined in a batch based on a recipe or a formula, and the inventory is not assembled but rather blended. This results in some unique properties, including yield factors and re-blended waste products. Because of these unique factors, traditional manufacturing software does not fit these manufacturers.

Microsoft acquired a process industry solution, which provides tight integration of business processes across distribution, discrete and process manufacturing to help increase efficiency and cut operational cost for businesses that specialize in process manufacturing. This industry solution extends the core capabilities of Microsoft Dynamics® AX, and we think this is the best solution for this unique area because of 3 main factors:

1.      Flexible and Adaptable: You can define multiple inventory dimensions, including dual units of measure, catch-weight calculations, packaged codes, variations to the main item and lots. You can also support flexile product configuration and packaging options.

2.      Accurate Capacity Planning and Production Costing: Through graphical representations of multi-level formulas, you can analyze and monitor production costs helping you to stay on track financially.

3.      Low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO): Because the solution is tightly integrated with Microsoft Office system applications, Microsoft SQL Server, and Microsoft SharePoint Services, you can rest assured your IT investment is worthwhile.
