Combining Three Manufacturing Sectors into One Microsoft Dynamics Product


Email | Print

“Most businesses are dynamic with many different operations and processes that together help keep you at the forefront of your marketplace.  Manufacturing operations have the added factors of inventory, production, and supply chain management for their products.  As complicated as that could be, Microsoft has done a nice job of combining process manufacturing, discrete manufacturing, and lean manufacturing into one product”, said Christian Hestermann, research director for ERP at Gartner.

Microsoft Dynamics® AX is a comprehensive business intelligence solution that can offer manufacturing organizations the ability to streamline operations, become more agile, and improve productivity across multiple sites and geographic areas.  Manufacturers can organize data from made-to-order and make-to-stock, as well as other product processes within a single platform in Microsoft Dynamics AX.  Having greater insight and control into discrete, process, and lean processes will help you identify ways to further streamline operations, improve performance, and identify waste.

Multiple manufacturing sites, often working across many geographical locations, creates a maze of regulatory and compliance issues.  Microsoft Dynamics AX provides added tracking and traceability to your products to make compliance with safety and environmental regulations, as well as tax and employment rules, easier.  Organizing supply chain in this software solution will also encourage greater collaboration and communication with vendors and customers.

Manufacturing organizations don’t often have a straight-line system with simple processes that can be traced from start to finish.  Microsoft Dynamics AX can organize the ever-changing manufacturing processes in a single software system.  Being able to tap into critical, real-time data, you will be able to respond faster to supply and demand, shorten product lifecycles, and provide faster customer service.

Ideal for midsize and large manufacturing organizations, Microsoft Dynamics AX is a powerful ERP solution that can improve productivity and profitability.  Flexible and scalable to meet your needs now and into the future, Microsoft Dynamics AX will provide greater business value, agility, and give you a competitive edge.  Contact Sikich to determine how Microsoft Dynamics AX can benefit your business.
