As a process manufacturer you are aware that there are some unique challenges that you face. Maintaining margins in a channel that is very competitive requires high quality processes, and increased amounts of security can be a challenge. It is imperative that your Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system keeps control of your processes. Fortunately, the latest release of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 has two feature packs depending on your focus. Some common elements of both feature packs include:
- Maintain complex formulas
- Manage short life products
- Manage product compliance
- Advanced lot tracking & control
- Procure, store & sell products in dual units of measure
Beyond these elements there is a feature pack solution for Process Manufacturing Production which includes formula and production management. In addition, there is a Process Manufacturing Logistics feature pack which includes functionality such as lot management, warehouse management, and regulatory compliance management. For a more detailed description of what process manufactures can expect out of Microsoft Dynamics AX refer to this Microsoft blog post Process manufacturing Dynamics AX 2012 capabilities.
