80023A: Production Series II in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009

Module 1: Production Series I Review
This lesson reviews the main concepts of the Production Series I course, including BOM, routes, operations, life cycle and multisite functionality.
•Multisite Review
•Core Concepts in Production
•Bill of Materials (BOM)
•Calendars and Work Centers
•Operations and Routes
•Life Cycle, Parameters, and Production Orders

•Describe how multisite functionality interacts with the Production module
•Explain the definition and set up of core conceptual elements in production, including BOMs, calendars, work centers, operations and routes
•Provide an overview of the production life cycle, parameters and production orders
•Define and describe the use of operation and job scheduling
•Explain how master planning and the Production module interact

Module 2: Inventory Dimensions in Productions
This lesson describes the general setup and use of inventory dimensions in production. In particular it covers the storage dimensions used in production to define warehouses, pallets, batches, serial numbers and site.
•Item Dimensions
•Storage Dimensions
•Dimension Groups and Dimensions
•Allocating Batch and Serial Numbers
•Production Order Reservations
•Trace Batch and Serial Number

•Define item and storage inventory dimensions
•Describe the use of serial or batch numbers to track and control manufactured items
•Use inventory reservations in production
•Understand inventory marking
•Describe inventory trace functions
•Use inventory dimensions when working with multiple operational sites

Module 3: Subcontractor Work
This lesson describes how to set up and work with BOM lines, purchase orders, production orders, and operations when subcontractors are used in the production process.
•BOM Line Types
•Purchase Orders
•Production Orders
Lab : Create Work Center Group with Work Center of Type Vendor
Lab : Purchase Items for BOM from Subcontractor
Lab : Use a Subcontractor to Produce an Item in the BOM
•Describe working with BOM line type vendor when using subcontractors
•Generate purchase orders to a supplier when on-hand inventory is insufficient
•Create a vendor production order
•Set up work centers and groups for the vendor

Module 4: Advanced Production Scheduling
This lesson provides more detail about the advanced optional production scheduling settings, including properties, efficiencies, task groups and route groups.
•Production Groups
•Production Pools
•Task Groups
•Route Groups
•Priority Scheduling
•Splitting a Production Order
Lab : Set Properties on Items and Work Centers
Lab : Create Task Groups
Lab : Configure a Production Pool and Assign a Production Order
After completing this module, students will be able to:
•Configure production groups to establish relationships between production orders and ledger accounts
•Describe how to use production pools to monitor production orders in specific categories
•Set up properties to guide production orders to run under special times and conditions on the working time template
•Attach properties to work centers
•Set up task groups to schedule production on alternative work centers
•Create route groups and attach them to operations on the route
•Use the various scheduling methods and distinguish between operations and job scheduling
•Split a production order

Module 5: Scrap and Waste
This lesson describes the management of constant and variable scrap settings that can be placed on the BOM, work centers and routes.
•BOM Scrap
•Work Center Scrap
•Route Scrap
•Costing of Scrap/Waste
Lab : Add BOM Scrap and Run Calculations
Lab : Set Scrap Percentages on a Route
After completing this module, students will be able to:
•Set up BOM scrap percentages
•Set up scrap percentages on work centers
•Set up scrap percentages for each operation in the production routes
•Describe the costing of scrap

Module 6: General Ledger and the Production Series
This lesson provides an overview of the different settings that can be used to determine how item costs are posted to the general ledger.
•Production Life Cycle Review
•Ledger Settings
•Production Journals
•Posting Profile in Production Groups
•Production Cost Overview
•End Production Orders
Lab : End a Production Order
•Describe the steps of the production life cycle
•Describe production order ledger setting options and define default ledger settings in production parameters
•Use production journals to report consumption to the general ledger
•Assign ledger settings for production groups
•Analyze actual and estimated costs of production orders and current production activities

Module 7: Manufacturing Strategies
This lesson provides a high level conceptual overview of a number of manufacturing strategies, including a brief description of how Enterprise Portal and Product Builder can be employed.
•Configure to Order
•Make to Order
•Assemble to Order
•Make to Stock
•Repetitive Manufacturing
•Job Shop
•Make to Contract
•Engineer to Order
After completing this module, students will be able to:
•Describe the various manufacturing strategies including configure-to-order, make-to-order, assemble-to-order, make-to-stock, repetitive manufacturing, job shops, make-to-contract and engineer-to-order
•Describe how Enterprise Portal and Production Builder can be used
Module 8: Implementing Production Series
This lesson is an overview of how the Production module is implemented. It places the implementation in context and among other things reviews the sequential setup of BOMs, work centers, routes, operations and multisite.
•Setup and Interconnectivity
•Implementing Production Checklist
•Setting up Production Parameters
•Modifying Data Types
•Setting up Item and BOM Tables
