  • Lean Manufacturing
    Lean Manufacturing for Microsoft Dynamics AX has been designed specifically to help manufacturing organisations compete today by supporting the implementation of lean manufacturing strategies. It’s an integrated business management solution that also delivers the specific functionality that can empower your people to achieve demand-driven, flow production.

    For instance, the solution delivers tools for determining the pace of demand—takt time—and then leveling and scheduling production to meet the pace of that “drumbeat.” The customer demand information that drives the system can come through EDI, XML, CSV data, or through a Web page to feed three-horizon sales scheduling that drives flow production.

    To be able to create a demand-driven, flow production system, of course, you’ve got to have processes and replenishment completely under control. Lean Manufacturing for Microsoft Dynamics AX provides support for kanban replenishment systems, whether your kanban are cards, bins, buckets, or electronic signals. It also helps improve replenishment by enhancing supply chain collaboration. With Business Portal integration, you can share real-time information about demand, materials requirements and inventory levels, and order status. Standard Web services and the ability to exchange common electronic documents such as POs, confirmations, ASNs, and invoices can help you streamline transactions, increase accuracy, and speed order cycles.
