Overview

Course Description

This two-day instructor-led course, Discrete Manufacturing Advanced in Microsoft DynamicsAX 2012, provides students with the necessary tools and resources to perform basic tasks in the Discrete Manufacturing Advanced flow in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012.

Who Should Attend

The intended audience includes customers that want to learn the basic features and develop a working knowledge of the typical daily procedures required to effectively use Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Discrete Manufacturing Advanced functionality. The class is intended for production managers, and other people in organizations responsible for the setup and administration of production control and inventory management functionality.

Course Outline

Module 1: Discrete Manufacturing Basics Review
This chapter provides a general overview of Discrete Manufacturing Basics in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012.

Module 2: Inventory Dimensions in Production
This module describes the general setup and use of inventory dimensions in production. In particular it covers the storage and tracking dimensions used in production to define warehouses, locations, pallets, batches, serial numbers and site.

Module 3: Subcontractor Work
This module describes how to set up and work with BOM lines, purchase orders, production orders, and operations when subcontractors are used in the production process.

Module 4: Advanced Production Scheduling
This module provides more detail about the advanced optional production scheduling settings, including properties, efficiencies, capabilities and route groups.

Module 5: Scrap and Waste
This chapter explains the request for quotation process. Steps for creating, following-up, and processing a request for quotation reply are reviewed. Additionally, reports and inquiries for request for quotations are reviewed.

Module 6: General Ledger and the Production
This module provides an overview of the different settings that can be used to determine how product costs are posted to the general ledger.

Module 7: Implementing the Production Series
This module is an overview of how the Production module is implemented. It places the implementation in context and among other things reviews the sequential setup of BOMs, resources, routes, operations and Routes.
