Dynamics AX Trade & Logistics Capabilities:
Dynamics AX Trade & Logistics owns some advantageous capabilities that help it to top the charts in helping the organizations for managing inventories. Let’s get an insight into some of the capabilities:
Enhance Inventory Levels
MS Dynamics AX T&L support provides a powerful forecasting functionality that helps in making long-term plans for optimizing the inventory level. Users can also generate sales and purchase prediction reports depending upon the time span and items. Dynamics T&L also uses a countless amount of forecast models to predict numerous future processes.
Get a detailed insight about inventory
Dynamics AX T&L is a dominant tool used in categorizing the inventories based on items and storage space. This assists in getting a thorough sketch of the inventory as and when required. Tracking of items is also possible by using batch numbers with the assistance of Dynamics AX T&L. Users can also take a look at the documents associated with the items in inventory by taking the aid of the tree-graphic model. It also provides direct access to the information as to where were the items used and where they could be found.
Create bills of material with ease
Graphical tree-structure makes it easier to make BOMs in the user-friendly environment. BOM design shows all the levels of it and related items can be dragged and dropped into BOM from the inventory stage and generate them depending upon drag-and-drop technology provided by Microsoft.
Flexible management of BOMs
Dynamics T&L helps in getting exact information about the material requirement and costing by giving flexible ways to manage bills. An accurate idea of raw material consumption in various BOM levels can be tracked and managed easily. Multiple levels in BOM can be created that can be used under various BOM versions dates. Older BOM versions can also be accessed by using the date option.
