QUALITY – INFORMATION GOLDMINE
Many companies still have an independent quality system for recording tests and results, the issue here is that all this information is usually hidden from the main operating system, or are keyed in separately leaving you with a possibility of two versions of the truth, by integrating quality into MOM you will unlock an information goldmine.
Remember the days when test results were written on a form and then just filed away, well those days are long gone, Quality results today will be used to update the product characteristic or batch attribute information for materials or finished items such as Brix, temperature, chemical breakdown, fat content and percent weight.
When full integration is adopted in Dynamics AX 2012 these attributes can be used for material batch selection, as the potency of an active ingredient can differ per batch, the quantities of active, compensating, and filler ingredients for a batch order need to be balanced to accommodate the amount of material that is required for production, Restrict inventory reservation/selection for customers based on Customer specific batch attributes / values or calculate batch attribute pricing, take the purchase price and divide it by the batch attribute target to get a price per unit at 100% concentration. Then multiply by the batch attribute actual value.
How many times have you have demand out strip supply for a bulk product, and spend hours of days trying to balance out the packing schedule, Or just having tanks of product for packing in various container, then after packing finding you still have product remaining in the tank and having that rush of trying to work out what you have packaging available for, and is it the product with demand.
Dynamics AX 2012 Process manufacturing, for example Food processing, chemical, and pharmaceutical companies, produce and quarantine bulk items for quality inspection. After quality approval, the inventory of the bulk items is transferred to a temporary storage tank or dispensed directly into different pack sizes. The packaging is designed into different size containers or into containers with different labels according to the customer's requirements. By grouping the bulk and packed orders together, the total bulk produced and consumed can be calculated and adjusted at the bulk and/or packed orders levels displaying displays a running totals, the total yield for the process can also be determined. With the use of product sequencing for the packouts setup times can also be reduced.
The following clip is a quick demonstration of the power of Containerized Packaging.
