Along with Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft has released the Windows 8 Production floor app that works with the product. This app is compatible only with installations of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3 or later.

With the Production floor app, you have a mobile, actionable overview of the production jobs that need your attention today. You can quickly perform daily production tasks such as starting jobs, reporting jobs as finished, and registering breaks and absence. Large font sizes and input controls improve readability and make the app easy to use while you’re on-the-go.

Want to try it out? You can download the app from the Microsoft Windows App store  http://apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-us/app/cc07f817-e74c-48aa-86ad-1c0345fff989 and run it in a demonstration mode that lets you explore the features without a connection to Microsoft Dynamics AX.
