Course Outline · Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 Production Series I Student Materials The student kit includes a comprehensive workbook and other necessary materials for this class. The course in built up in chapters that roughly follow the way in which the Production module is setup and used. Production is highly dependent on a step by step work flow. Many of the components are set up in a specific sequence. To help you gain insight into this process and prepare you for this class, review the following course synopsis:

Chapter 1: Introduction to Production Series I

This lesson provides a high level summary of the main elements in production that will be found in the course. It contains basic conceptual information and a broad overview of some of the main core concepts such as:

A description of the interactivity of the Production module with other modules and an example of a hypothetical in-house production work flow in a single company that illustrates this interaction. (An understanding of this interactivity is essential to understanding how to use the Production module.) A definition of core concepts in production such as BOMs, work centers, work center groups, operations and routes. An overview of the production life cycle and how the status of production orders reflects this cycle. An overview of Multisite functionality as it pertains to production.

This lesson also summarizes the major new features implemented in the production area for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009. A significant number of these changes are as a result of the new multisite functionality, however additional changes include Gantt Chart improvements, Master planning capability across sites as it relates to production, Available to promise (ATP), and the ability to filter information in key forms.

Chapter 2: Bill of Materials (in Production)

This lessons contains a comprehensive overview of the role of the BOM as one of the Production module's core building blocks, including, screen shots, procedures and labs to illustrate the process. Since BOMs are used in production to specify ingredients or subordinate components that are required physically to make each assembled part number or item in production, they are essential to the functioning of the production life cycle and processes. Much of the setup and use of BOMs occur in the Inventory management module in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009. The lesson includes an overview of the main elements of single level and indented BOMs with explanations on how to set up BOMs from different forms in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009.
