At What Point Does Microsoft Dynamics AX Become Overloaded for Enterprise Users?

Enterprise users of Microsoft Dynamics AX are increasingly adapting the software for heavy-duty tasks--mass scanning of manufacturing and AP documents, clustering AOS (automated office system) servers, and running half a dozen or more businesses scattered around the globe.

Based on a discussion at a recent AX User Group SIG on Enterprise AX Installations, some of these users are becoming concerned that they may be over-stressing their AX programs.

Several users are worried that their document handling systems could be reaching a point that their systems slow significantly. One large organization that has decided to save all its manufacturing documents figures it now has 15,000 documents stored using AX, and will see the number double very shortly once it puts the new policy on manufacturing documents into practice.
