Dynamics Ax Process Manufacturing Implementation And Customization Notes-www.semm.com

Software Axapta, or as its new name reads Microsoft Dynamics AX is famous to cover such important feature as Process Manufacturing, often referred as Process Production. In fact Microsoft Dynamics family of Corporate ERP applications has other systems, where manufacturing is pretty advanced. For example Dynamics GP also has its own Manufacturing suite of modules, however it is rather dedicated to so-called Discrete Manufacturing. Lets review what process manufacturing is, plus make some recommendation in implementation and custom programming: 1.Known input and expected but not known exactly output. Lets imagine meat or poultry processing facility. You may know how many pigs, lambs, or cows are expected to be slaughtered every day and you may even know the weight of each animal to be processed. However each chicken has its individual combination of protein, fat and bones weight. This is why you may statistically predict the final goods output, but its exact outcome should be entered when meat is processed and packaged to be shipped to retailers 2.Process Manufacturing in Agriculture. Here you may think about farmer cooperatives, producing cord, wheat, soy beans, greenery, such as onions, tomatoes, parsley, leeks, peppers, cucumbers and pickles. Again, before sending these produces to the supermarket chains you could like to sort and package them. You know expected tonnage, but the final figure will be known when truck are loaded and ready to go 3.Mining Industry. Here every mine has its own specifics. For example, gold or silver ore could have various percentage of the final metal. This is another industry where process manufacturing enabled Corporate ERP is recommended 4.Oil and Gas Drilling. Here the accounting method is more complicated, as there is high risk that drilling will result in no oil to be found. However if the discovery is successful, likely that drilling facility will need combined version of process and discrete manufacturing. Oil strata might have various enrichments 5.Why Dynamics AX? The reason to consider is the fact that food production, mining and drilling is partially or completely outsourced to such countries as Russian Federation (with Siberia), Kazakhstan, China, South Africa, South America with Brazil, India, European Union. AX with its perfect process manufacturing functionality is localized for these countries 6.How difficult is customize Axapta? Well, we recognize the need to Corporate ERP modification, especially when we are talking about large companies in upper mid-market. Unique business processes help them to compete on the market. Microsoft Dynamics AX is exposed to custom programming in its IDE MorphX and popular coding language is X++. If you decide to launch custom coding project with international aspect, we do recommend you to consider deploying Labels, as this technology will enable your custom module translation via text editing 7.Global Process Production Enterprise and its Financial Reporting Options. Traditionally Microsoft Business Solutions were recommending FRx financial reporting application, where consolidate BS, P&L, Statement of Cash Flow were available on the reporting tree level. However around the year 2010 MBS introduced new Financial Reporting tool Microsoft Management Reporter. It is recommended for AX version 2012 8.AX in China in connection to process manufacturing. Here we are seeing the growth in Seafood (shrimps, clams, octopuses), Fish farms (tilapia, carp, salmon). Plus China is now gaining its market share in traditional verdure, such as Salads, cucumbers, spinach, meat, poultry 9.Russian Federation. Here we see strong trend for multinational companies to open the door into oil, gas, coal, gold, platinum, copper, nickel, silver, asbestos, lead, uranium mining industries. Axapta is localized in Russia, so it is the way to deploy it here. There is also a trend for international farmers to purchase or rent the land in Russia. These enterprises seems to be smaller to pretend to Axapta 10.Brazil. Here we see unique food industry with high import potential to the USA and Europe. New opportunities seem to be available in granite and marble slabs exporting. All these industries are requiring process production functionality. Plus picking up ethanol/alcohol as car fuel import industry 11.Central Asia. Such countries as Afghanistan, Iran, Armenia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Pakistan, Syria, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan are in kind of on hold situation. However right now it is good opportunity for consulting firm at least to offer initial software licenses sale and web session based remote support. We do not believe that current limbo situation will last long time (in mid-term perspective). AX is geared to do the job in these markets, so please keep yourself updated. We are not considering ourselves as politicians. However our feeling about all these Islamic events associated with the past decade is that they might be related to the fact that American CIA were involved in financing and organizing the war against Soviet Russian troops in Afghanistan in 1980th from Pakistan territory. We believe that time should heel these old mistakes or maybe better described as compromise decisions. As we were visiting Muslim countries around the globe we were treated as important quests without signs of hostility (Tashkent, Bukhara, Urghench, Kokhand, plus Turkey) 12.Please call us 1-866-304-3265, 1-269-605-4904 (for international customers, where our representative pick up the phone in St. Joseph, MI call center).
