While Microsoft Dynamics Ax is a direct fit for discrete manufacturing products like Apparel, Retail etc. It is not the same when it comes to the multi dimension market. It is really a challenge. The Innovites solution is something that aims at offering an out of the box solution that will help fit this multi dimensional products in to the inventory model of Dynamics Ax. But this article is not certainly about our solution..which you can see here if you want to know more (Product Demonstration).
Recently one of my colleague shared with me an interesting link where Mike Randle an independent Ax consultant has neatly explained the challenges involved in implementing the Dynamics Ax solution for a multi dimension industry. It’s an interesting document to read through… http://lilmikey.com/?p=278
It also makes me to feel proud look at the way we have addressed these problems in our Innovites 4 Cable solution.

Whenever I go for a customer demo i try to align my data with their portfolio. It can be tedious if we try to create the entire data again. What i do is I smartly rename all the existing items instead of recreating the data. Ax has a handy option that lets you do this easily. Through this option you can even rename primary key’s not just item Id. Watch the video below to understand more.
Guess you will find it useful tooooo…..:)

This dimension setup decides how issues are grouped based on dimensions
But just this setup wouldn’t be enough to achieve grouping when you run the scheduling engine.
Make sure you also setup the “Coverage code” in the Item Coverage group to “Period”. If this setup is not done then you will still find issues getting created individually or based on Min Max
