The buyer group in Microsoft Dynamics AX/365: How to use it?
Editor's Note: All test results described in this article are based on Dynamics 365 for Operations, product version 1611.
The business context of defining buyer groups to manage a supply chain is quite clear.
In companies that implement Microsoft Dynamics AX or 365 for Operations, purchasing activities are never done by just one person, so the work has to be divided. How? Different approaches exist. I often see a split by commodity, so certain buyers buy certain materials. We also have seen buyers only dealing with certain suppliers and split their work that way. It depends on the industry.
