A comprehensive solution for managing discrete, process, and lean manufacturing
Microsoft Dynamics AX: Powerful. Agile. Simple.
Manufacturers have always worked to improve performance against benchmarks such as cost, time-to-market, product quality, and inventory optimization. Now globalization, contract manufacturing, growing environmental and social awareness, and the need for instant operational insight are adding new opportunities as well as challenges. Microsoft Dynamics® AX 2012 helps manufacturers meet these opportunities and challenges with a powerful enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution that is purposely built for manufacturing organizations.
In today’s global marketplace, manufacturers rely on technology for product design, inventory management, resource utilization, production scheduling, process optimization, and more. They employ a mix of discrete, process, and lean manufacturing methods that are often managed through separate systems. This limitation makes it difficult to cost-effectively satisfy customer demands, particularly across multiple sites and geographies. The growth of contract manufacturing, emerging requirements for green manufacturing, and the diversity of the global workforce all accentuate shortcomings in many of today’s ERP solutions.
