Project based manufacturing is the most complex when compared to other types of manufacturing. Projects often begin as a concept, which later transform to become a reality by combining several assemblies/sub-assemblies with several bills of materials and steering instructions. Project-based manufacturing entails taking the existing standard manufacturing process and segregating the value chain by control, execution and planning. It is used when there is a need for a complex, unique product that requires a specific process to produce efficiently.
Microsoft Dynamics AX provides a vehicle upon which your project could be controlled from concept through to delivery. The software keeps track of status of the project always, plans budget v/s reality, visibility, and calculates realistic timescale for completion. Thus, Microsoft Dynamics AX helps you to maintain an accurate running cost for keeping the project on track.
Program managers must obsessively monitor their budgets as they are faced with the additional costs of special-ordered products. It is key that they measure the differences between the estimated cost and the actual cost and record any variances. If this is done correctly, it benefits highly complex engineer-to-order business and capital projects.
