Managing Your Supply Chain Using Microsoft Axapta: A Book Excerpt Part Three: Common Scenarios


The nature of a sales and operations planning (S&OP) game plan depends on several factors, such as the need to anticipate demand, the item's primary source of supply, and the production strategy for manufactured items. Consideration of these factors can be illustrated with several common scenarios.

Figure 5.4 Example of a Make-to-Order Standard Product The forecast consumption logic—via a manual, open order or reduction percentage approach—ensures that only sales orders drive final assembly production orders. Direct linkage involves generating the production order from the sales order for the equipment. After generating the end-item's production order, the system automatically generates a linked production order for a make-to-order component and a linked purchase order for a bu Read More

Evolution to Revolution: The Test Automation Maturity Curve


The evolution of test automation towards data-driven and key/action word frameworks reflects the realization that the process becomes more efficient if there is less code to develop and maintain. Instead of taking twenty years to evolve towards efficiency, you can take a revolutionary leap with a code-free approach that makes it easier to implement, manage, and maintain automated tests.

In this approach, the keyword or action word is written in a scripting language and is specific to the application under test. In some cases, the script code is generated automatically from building blocks that are then enhanced with additional code to perform decision-making and other logic tasks. In the example above, add product and check Read More

ToolsGroup-Statistics-based Supply Chain Planning


ToolsGroup continues to carve out a space for itself in supply chain. Not satisfied with being the last remaining independent multi-echelon inventory optimization (MEIO) vendor, ToolsGroup is pushing forward with broader supply chain capabilities centered around a core statistics-focused demand forecasting capability.

Ask any three people in an organization why they budget and you’ll get three different answers.

Why Systems Fail - The Dead-end of Dirty Data

Perhaps worse, when the material was placed in a location within the warehouse, the Read More

Is There a Way to Avoid Lengthy Catalog Numbers?


A sales configurator needs to be able to "decipher" products' specifications from a rule-based, constructed catalog number. Part number users should query vendors to determine whether their enterprise solutions cater to the needs of industrial automation manufacturers.

An example to illustrate where intelligent serialization is important would be ensuring that a 480-volt, 5-horsepower, 10-ampere combination of a conductor's features will always be identified with the number 1 in a particular position of the part number. This logic resembles the sequences' and positions' designations in bar codes, where a 480-volt, 10-horsepower, 10-ampere set, for example, annotated with 2 would do the same, and so on. By creating this sort of metadata, one can Read More

The next step is a scaled-back research and development agenda, meaning weakened and less frequent upgrades for clients, Read More
