In Search of Product Development Efficiency: Integrating Microsoft Dynamics AX and PLM

Key's Iso-Flo® Vibratory Conveyor

Engineering teams have enough headaches to deal with in developing winning designs for their company's products.  So once they've dotted all the "I's" and crossed all the "T's" on the design, they don't want to fight with laborious manual processes to push that design's bill of material (BOM) to ERP  and the manufacturing floor.

But pushing that data correctly in today's product development company requires the integration of two critical systems-the engineering team's product lifecycle management software (PLM) and an enterprise resource planning (ERP) software like Microsoft Dynamics AX.

And that can present some challenges.
