For some, the starting point for incremental learning consists of the older version of AX 2012, while others may start from AX 2012 R3.
This article quantifies the incremental learning and the relative amount of change between these previous versions and the new Dynamics AX, and focuses on supply chain management topics for manufacturing and distribution. It starts with some metrics about the amount of incremental learning, and then provides a summarized ...
