Many of the critical supply chain management requirements of the food products industry have been addressed in Dynamics AX. Examples include the impact of shelf life dates and lot attributes on sales order processing, master scheduling and quality management. Other examples include the different approaches for defining formula information, and managing production activities in typical scenarios such as bulk/pack or subcontracting with co-packers.
The presentation draws on Dr. Hamilton’s most recent AX book Managing Food Products Manufacturing using Dynamics AX 2012. The target audience consists of those individuals involved with the supply chain aspects of managing a food products business, especially those considering or currently implementing Dynamics AX as their ERP system. The learning objectives include new ideas and deeper understanding for using AX capabilities to manage your business.
