Production Scheduling SoftwareA production scheduling software solution can help you fill in the gaps between various production processes, determining your level of success as a manufacturer. Most manufacturing companies face common, yet complex production scheduling challenges, such as changing customer demands, inaccurate and inadequate manufacturing processes, and production interruptions. In addition to these, a production environment is subject to different concepts, such as lean, discrete and process manufacturing.

We know that dealing with different production scheduling issues and following a certain concept can be very difficult. However, you can put your worries to rest because Microsoft Dynamics AX delivers an ingenious production scheduling software solution which is ready to help you out.

Why Choose Microsoft Dynamics AX over Other Software Solutions

A new capability included in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 helps along with scheduling resources within the production control module based on the capability of each resource. This allows you to replace specific resources that aren’t available with other options, without jeopardizing your manufacturing process. Below, you can find a few more reasons why you should choose Dynamics AX instead of another option.

  • Flexibility: To help you to achieve maximum profitability from your manufacturing resources, Microsoft Dynamics AX's production modules provide detailed insight into master scheduling, where you can find information about the manufacturing resources required to meet certain demands. This production scheduling software solution also permits you to schedule different production processes forwards or backwards from any date.
  • Production Efficiency: Since Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 gives you better control over manufacturing resources, including materials, tools, employees and even sub-contractors, you can use this system to optimize your manufacturing flow. Further, you can achieve maximum productivity by determining whether infinite or finite capacity will be utilized. Detailed capacity scheduling ensures the best fit between certain operations and work centers, making possible significant lead time reduction. In addition, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 delivers advanced features, such as production sequencing, which can be used to decrease setup and changeover times in order to manage bottleneck scheduling efficiently.
  • Improved Performance: Another element included in this production scheduling software solution is flexible routing, which enables you to assign, overview, maintain and control the best production routes. Based on the production route you choose, you can calculate the setup, run and transport times for different manufacturing processes.
  • Production Costs: Since Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 lets you select among different alternatives relating to material consumption and recording capacity, you can monitor and lower production costs with ease. No matter what procedure you follow, be it recording material consumption and costs before starting a production cycle or recording actual consumption and costs during a manufacturing process, both consumption and costs are automatically recorded into the general ledger, where you can run an actual-estimated comparison of material consumption and costs.

The latest version of Microsoft Dynamics AX also simplifies system administration, while managing security according to specific roles and tasks. Dynamics AX 2012 supervises the entire business operation, knowing which workers are required to complete particular tasks. Based on this analytical capability, the system gives employees access only to the tasks they’re responsible for, eliminating potential errors and preventing the risk of intellectual property theft.

In conclusion, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 delivers a unified, intelligent production scheduling software solution, which supports flexible business operation modeling; declarative representation of workflows and policies; unlimited financial dimensions, fitting the business structure of a growing organization; and efficient handling of various organizational structures and business processes.
