Understand Your Product Structure Options in Dynamics AX 2012

Editor's Note: Join Dr. Scott Hamilton at Decisions Spring 2012 on June 18 at 9am EDT for the session Managing Food Products Manufacturing Using Dynamics AX 2012.

Product structure information is a key aspect of producing a manufactured item.  The product structure is typically called a bill of material (BOM) in the context of discrete manufacturing, and a formula in the context of process manufacturing.  These terminology differences have a special significance within Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012, since the production type assigned to a manufactured item (of BOM or Formula) impacts software functionality.  The terms BOM approach and formula approach will be used to differentiate the two approaches.
