This course provides an overview of the basic elements and functionality necessary for understanding the Production module in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009. Key elements include: the highly interactive nature of the module which draws upon information from other modules, an overview of the way in which Bills of materials are used in production, work centers and work center groups used to track equipment and resources for the production process, routes and operations, and the production order life cycle along with the scheduling functions, used to schedule the production of finished goods. In addition, the course is set up to reflect the general workflow and use of the module in the order that it would typically take place. Finally, the course summarizes some of the major new features implemented in the production area for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009. A significant number of these are as a result of the new multisite functionality, however additional changes are covered, such as Gantt Chart improvements, master planning capability across sites, ATP and filter functions on certain forms.
