Axapta MVP Scott Hamilton recently published a book entitled, “Managing Lean Manufacturing using Microsoft Dynamics AXAPTA 2009”.
This book explains the software functionality to support lean manufacturing scenarios, as defined by functionality within the latest release of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009. It also covers the traditional approaches to these same scenarios. The book explains the incremental conceptual differences between the lean and traditional approaches, and helps those readers with a traditional SCM/ERP background to understand the new vocabulary and conceptual models. The targeted reader includes those individuals implementing or considering Dynamics AX to support their lean manufacturing initiatives, as well as those providing sales and implementation services.
Here is a notable quote about the book:
“Scott’s ability to combine the subtleties of manufacturing environments with the capabilities of lean manufacturing functionality in Microsoft Dynamics AXAPTA 2009 is masterful. It truly showcases how a modern ERP solution can help organizations to manage both traditional and lean approaches to managing a supply chain effectively”.
Kirill Tatarinov, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Dynamics
