Production sequencing using Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2
Editor's note: This article highlights some of the new SCM features within the R2 release of AX 2012. A previous article summarized the major R2 changes for supply chain management.
Production sequencing is typically employed to minimize setup and changeover times at a production resource. Different approaches can be used to support production sequencing, ranging from simple to advanced. More advanced approaches often employ calculations of the minimum setup/changeover times to suggest production sequencing, and even update these times within the routing information for production orders. These calculations and updates are not typically used in simple approaches.
