EDI Integration with Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3 Highlighted at AXUG FOCUS

HeroImages_Spring2014FOCUS

 

June’s AXUG Manufacturing and Supply Chain FOCUS two-day conferences in Dallas and Indianapolis reined in over 100 AXUG members each, who attended for the 33 breakout sessions that covered both functional and industry topics. In this small group setting, there were loads of great discussions around master planning, manufacturing and supply chain trends, and how Microsoft plans to use technology in the future to help Dynamics AX-based companies do more to improve their customer and manufacturing experiences.

Many attendees were able to share approaches and lessons learned that helped each other realize how they can use Dynamics AX more. This networking also helped to confirm how users’ own experiences that may seem uncommon or challenging, are really not that uncommon in the world of AX implementations and/or upgrades.

Attendees also heard loud and clear that to get the most out of Dynamics AX, users need to understand set up and configurations, focused not just on the buttons to click, but the why behind set ups and what controls how AX operates to support their company’s business processes.

Data Masons’ Brian Lynch presented to the groups, “Collaboration: The Future of Technology and Your Supply Chain – EDI and Beyond.” During Brian’s session he discussed the critical role of EDI communications between manufacturers and suppliers in establishing a competitive advantage and how collaboration in the supply chain is evolving with technology

Included in Brian’s presentation was a discussion around EDI and Dynamics AX 2012 R3’s warehouse management capabilities. One example given was Advance Ship Notices (ASN) staging and the ability to integrate inbound ASNs for receiving into AX and then trigger via scanned license plates (UCC-128 like labels). Brian also highlighted that with ASN generation now native in AX for organizations that require multi-level packing, Data Masons’ Vantage Point EDI Solution can poll or pickup shipment details for transformation to EDI and other formats to partners.
