Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Manufacturing – Process Primer

Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012
Manufacturing – Process Primer
Purpose: The purpose of this document is to illustrate process manufacturing approach in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 on simplified example of Car tires manufacturing. This document will outline end-to-end functional flow for the scenario which includes setup (Section A), creation (Section B), estimation (Section C), scheduling (Section D), execution (Section E) and costing (Section F) aspects. Please review other documents in the series to compare traditional manufacturing approach to other manufacturing approaches in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012.
Challenge: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 out-of-the-box enables mixed mode manufacturing including traditional approach and process approach. Process manufacturing in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 has introduced number of new concepts such as formulas, co-products, by-products, etc. The idea is that the reader with understanding of traditional manufacturing approach will be able to adopt this knowledge in order to implement process manufacturing scenarios in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012.  
Solution: The simple but at the same time descriptive real-world example of Car tires manufacturing provides context for better understanding of manufacturing processes and their implementation in Microsoft Dynamics AX. In particular we will be dealing with single level formula, co-product and by-product, as well as straightforward sequential route in order to implement Make to Stock scenario. Make to Stock scenario was implemented for the sake of simplicity, however we can also apply this knowledge to implement Make to Order scenario if needed.
Scenario
In this scenario Car tire will be manufactured using process approach. Car tire ingredients will be put together in order to manufacture finished product. One team will be responsible for Car tire manufacturing.

One of the important requirements defined in this scenario is that all products are Standard cost controlled
Section A: Setup
 
Let's review the setup which is required to implement this scenario
Number of released products will be created in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 which will have similar characteristics for the sake of simplicity. All of them will be Standard cost controlled, Site and Warehouse will be used as Storage dimensions, default Site and Warehouse settings will be defined for released products and finally cost price will also be defined for all released products (not using Formula calculation for Formulas). Please note that in process industries we deal with Batch controlled products however for the sake of simplicity I didn't introduce Batch as Tracking dimension in this scenario.
 
For Car tire (AlexTire) manufacturing we will need the following ingredients: Rubber, Carbon and Zink oxide. Please note that as the result of Car tire (AlexTire) manufacturing we will also have Co-Slag co-product and By-Slag by-product.
 
Released product: Tire (AlexTire)
 
Car tire (AlexTire) released product will be created using decentralized approach
 
 
Cost price for Car tire (AlexTire) is 75$
 


Site "1" will be used as default Site for Purchase, Inventory and Sales
 


Within Site "1" Warehouse "11" will be used as default Warehouse for Purchase, Inventory and Sales
 


Car tire (AlexTire) will be manufactured that's why Production type = "Formula"
 


Released product: Rubber
 
Rubber released product will be created using decentralized approach
 


Cost price for Rubber is 3$/Lbs
 


Site "1" will be used as default Site for Purchase, Inventory and Sales

Within Site "1" Warehouse "11" will be used as default Warehouse for Purchase, Inventory and Sales
 
 
Released products
 
When all released products are created you can see them on Released products list page
 


Please note that Car tire (AlexTire) has Production type = Formula, Co-Slag has Production type = Co-product and By-Slag has Production type = By-product
Car tire (AlexTire) will be manufactured using 3 operations routes. Before we can define routing we will need to define the list of operations in the system
 

Operations
 
 

Car tire (AlexTire) will be manufactured by one team
 
 
Resource group: AlexTire
 
 
Car tire (AlexTire) will be manufactured by Alex Tire Team 1
 

 
Resource: AlexTire1
 
Alex Tire Team 1 will consists of 1 worker: Arnie Mondloch
 

 
Please note that Alex tire Team 1 will be responsible for Car tire (AlexTire) manufacturing
From costing perspective the cost prices for different types of labor will be defined through Cost categories
 
Cost category: Setup
 
Cost price for Setup labor will be 18$
 


Cost category: Run time
 
Cost price for Process labor will be 15$
 


Cost category: Quantity
 
Cost price per Quantity manufactured will be 2$
 


Costing sheet
 
The structure of manufacturing costs will be defined in Costing sheet
 


Please note that Costing sheet is also used to define and calculate different types of overheads such as material overhead, labor overhead and plant overhead 
 
Car tire (AlexTire) formula will consist of Rubber, Carbon and Zink oxide ingredients. Please note that the formula also defines Co-Slag co-product and By-Slag by-product as secondary outcomes from production process
 
Formula: AlexTire – Designer view
 
Designer view provides a visual representation of Car tire (AlexTire) formula
 

 
Please note that Co-Slag co-product and By-Slag by-product are listed under Co-products in Designer view
 
Formula: AlexTire – Lines view
 
Designer view provides a grid representation of Car tire (AlexTire) formula
 

 
Formula: AlexTire – Co-Products
 
You can define secondary outcomes from production process such as co-products and by-products on Co-products screen. In the case of Car tire (AlexTire) formula they are Co-Slag co-product and By-Slag by-product
 

 
Car tire (AlexTire) route will consist of Mixing, Building and Curing operations which will be executed sequentially
 
Route: AlexTire
 

 
Please note that different Cost categories are specified for Setup, Run time and Quantity for all route operations
 


Please note that Curing operation requires Queue time before (0.25 hours) and Queue time after (0.25 hours) as well as Run time (1 hour)
 


Please note that Resource requirements are specified for all route operations
 

Section B: Creation

 
In Make to Stock scenario we will create Batch order for Car tire (AlexTire) manually
 
Batch order: AlexTire
 
Batch order is a document which in process scenario controls manufacturing process of certain quantity of goods within defined timeframe
 


Production orders
 
When batch order is created you can see it on Production orders list page
 


When batch order is created the system will copy product’s active Formula and active route in order to create production Formula and production route
 
Batch order: AlexTire – Production Formula
 
Production Formula is a list of ingredients to be used for this particular Batch order
 


Please note that you can change Batch Formula to meet specific requirements for particular Batch order without affecting product’s active Formula
 
Batch order: AlexTire – Production Co/By-products
 
Production Co/By-products represent secondary outcomes from production process
 


Please note that you can change Batch Co/By products to meet specific requirements for particular Batch order without affecting product’s standard Co/By products defined on the formula if you allow for Co-products variations
 
Batch order: AlexTire – Production cost
 
You can also define a cost distribution between your formula and co-products as well as burden related to disposal of by-products
 
 

Batch order: AlexTire – Production Route
 
Production Route is a list of operations to be used for this particular Batch order
 
 

Please note that you can change Batch Route to meet specific requirements for particular Batch order without affecting product’s active Route
At this moment we only have 1 inventory transaction representing batch order receipt for Car tire (AlexTire)
 
Inventory transactions
 
 

Section C: Estimation

 
The next step in Car tire (AlexTire) batch order life cycle is to estimate batch order
 
Batch order: AlexTire – Estimate
 
It’s important to mention that during estimation the system will create inventory issue transactions for Formula ingredients, create inventory receipt transactions for Co/By products, calculate estimated cost of manufactured product and create related Batch orders for manufactured sub-ingredients if needed
 


Once estimation is finished you can see the list of batch orders on Production orders list page
 
Production orders
 


From costing perspective after estimation the system calculated estimated cost of batch order based on production Formula and production route
 
Batch order: AlexTire – Price calculation
 


Please note that the system segregates consumption of materials from consumption of labor on Overview estimation tab. Also different types of overhead costs were added based on Costing sheet setup
 


However on Costing sheet tab you can also see an aggregated Total as well as breakdown based on Cost groups defined in Costing sheet
 
You can also review Price calculation details for co-products
 


In this particular example no cost will be allocated to co-product. Please see Appendix A for different examples of cost allocation
 
After estimation the system created all necessary issue inventory transactions for Formula components for Car tire (AlexTire) and receipt inventory transactions for Co/By products
 
Inventory transactions
 

Section D: Scheduling

 
The next step in Car tire (AlexTire) batch order life cycle is to schedule batch order
In this particular scenario I’ll execute Job scheduling which will generate number of jobs and provide exact dates and times for them
 
Batch order: AlexTire – Job Scheduling
 


Production orders
 
Once Job scheduling is finished you can see the list of batch orders and their statuses on Production orders list page
 


Please note that the system scheduled batch order and generated number of jobs based on times defined on route operations
 
Batch order: AlexTire – Jobs
 
As the result of Job scheduling based on Batch Route the system generated a number of jobs
 


Batch order: AlexTire – Gantt chart
 
Gantt chart provides visual representation of production schedule, ability to reschedule for the user by dragging and dropping bars and much more
 


Please note that Gantt chart provides 2 views: Order view and Resource view
 


At this moment no changes happened to inventory transactions, however by the result of scheduling the system did appropriate capacity reservation for resources involved
 
Inventory transactions
 

Section E: Execution

 
The next step in Car tire (AlexTire) batch order life cycle is to release batch order which releases batch order from top floor to shop floor and indicates that batch order can be started
 
Batch order: AlexTire – Release
 


Production orders
 
Once release is finished you can see the list of batch orders and their statuses on Production orders list page
 


At this moment no changes happened to inventory transactions
 
Inventory transactions
 


The next step in Car tire (AlexTire) batch order life cycle is to start batch order
 
Batch order: AlexTire – Start
 


In this case I’ll pre-flush materials and labor consumption which means that material and labor consumption will be posted up-front. Please notice “Post picking list now” and “Post route card now” checkboxes which are marked. I assume that there’s enough on-hand for the ingredients to be consumed
 


Please note that you can also back-flush materials and labor consumption which means that material and labor consumption may be posted at the time when you report your batch order as finished 
 
Infolog
 
As the result the following message will be displayed informing that Picking list journal and Route card journal have been posted for the consumption of material and labor 
 


Production orders
 


Picking list journal is used to post material consumption
 
Batch order: AlexTire – Picking list journal

Section F: Costing

 
The next step in Tire (AlexTire) batch order life cycle is to end batch order
 
Batch order: AlexTire – End
 


Once you ended batch order you can see the list of batch orders on Production orders list page
 
Production orders
 


From costing perspective after ending batch order the system calculated actual cost of batch order based on actual material and labor consumption
 
Batch order: AlexTire – Price calculation
 


Please note that the system segregates consumption of materials from consumption of labor on Overview costing tab. Also different types of overhead costs are represented based on Costing sheet setup
 


However on Costing sheet tab you can also see an aggregated Total as well as breakdown based on Cost groups defined in Costing sheet
 


You can review production variances on Production variances screen
 

 
You can also review Price calculation details for co-products
 


You can review production variances for Co-products on Variance screen as Summary
 


Or you can review production variances for Co-products on Variance screen in Details
 


In this particular example no cost will be allocated to co-product. Please see Appendix A for different examples of cost allocation
 
Inventory transactions
 
At this moment the system financially updated all receipt and issue inventory transactions related to Car tire (AlexTire) production
 


Please note that the system recorded financial costs for inventory transactions according to posted material and labor consumption as well as all applied overheads, and also it calculated adjustments to predefined standard costs. Adjustments to standard cost were needed because initially I didn’t use Formula calculation to calculate cost price of manufactured products and specified their cost prices manually. Please note that the system didn’t record any financial costs for Co/By products because in this simplified setup the cost of production is not allocated onto Co-Slag Co-product and the cost of By-Slag by-product doesn’t add burden to the cost of production. Please see Appendix A and Appendix B for examples of different setups as it relates to cost allocation for co-products and burden cost for by-products. The system didn’t record any financial costs for Co/By products, however standard cost adjustments were made to Co/By product inventory transactions as usually
  
Batch order: AlexTire – Production posting
 
The result of ending Car tire (AlexTire) batch order is reflected in Production posting details
 


Please see details of Production posting for Car tire (AlexTire) batch order in the table below
 
Costing
 
Costing amount 88.50$ reflects the actual cost of batch order which includes material consumption, labor consumption and various overheads applied
 
*Inventory transactions
 
All inventory transactions related to Car tire (AlexTire) batch order will be displayed on Voucher transactions screen for costing
 
<![if !vml]><![endif]>
 
*Voucher transactions
 
Ledger voucher provides details on which account was credited for “Production issue” and which account was debited for “Production offset account issue”. Similarly which account was credited for “Production offset account receipt” and which account was debited for “Production receipt”.  Cost adjustment is reflected in “Production substitution variance” posting.
 
<![if !vml]><![endif]>
 
Please note that when batch order was ended the system reversed all previous postings for WIP (Work in process) including material consumption, labor consumption and all applied overheads
 
Costing (Co-product)
 
Costing amount 0$ reflects the fact that production cost is not allocated to co-products in this scenario
 
*Inventory transactions
 
All inventory transactions related to Car tire (AlexTire) production order will be displayed on Voucher transactions screen for costing
 
<![if !vml]><![endif]>
 
*Voucher transactions
 
Ledger voucher provides details on which account was credited for “Production issue” and which account was debited for “Production offset account issue”. Similarly which account was credited for “Production offset account receipt” and which account was debited for “Production receipt”.  Cost adjustment is reflected in “Production substitution variance” posting.
 
<![if !vml]><![endif]>
 
Please note that when batch order was ended the system reversed all previous postings for WIP (Work in process) including material consumption, labor consumption and all applied overheads
 

Appendix A: Co-products

 
Please see different scenarios for cost allocation for co-products described below. For the sake of clarity in these scenarios only co-product (and no by-product) is the secondary outcome for production process
 
Scenarios
 
<![if !supportLists]>1.       <![endif]>Cost allocation = None
 
In this scenario the system doesn’t do any cost allocation for co-products
 
Formula: AlexTire – Co-Products

 
Please note that Cost allocation = None for Co-Slag co-product. This means that the system will not allocate cost onto Co-Slag co-product
 
Inventory transactions
 

 
Please note that financial cost for Co-Slag co-product inventory receipt transaction is 0 (Zero)


<![if !supportLists]>2.       <![endif]>Cost allocation = Manual
 
In this scenario the system will do cost allocation for co-products in accordance with Cost allocation percent specified manually
 
Formula: AlexTire – Co-Products
 

 
Please note that Cost allocation = Manual and Cost allocation percent = 50% for Co-Slag co-product. This means that the system will evenly (50%/50%) allocate cost onto Co-Slag co-product and Car tire (AlexTire) product based on total production cost
 
Inventory transactions
 

 
Please note that financial cost for Co-Slag co-product inventory receipt transaction is 44.25$ which equals to financial cost for Car tire (AlexTire) inventory receipt transaction
 
<![if !supportLists]>3.       <![endif]>Cost allocation = TCA (Total cost allocation)

In this scenario the system will do cost allocation for co-products in accordance with TCA (Total cost allocation) principle
 
Formula: AlexTire
 

 
Please note that Total cost allocation checkbox is selected for the formula to enable TCA (Total cost allocation) for co-products
 
Formula: AlexTire – Co-Products (Estimate cost)
 

 
Based on TCA (Total cost allocation) principle the system calculates the cost as a weighted average between the quantities that are reported as finished for product and co-products. On Estimate cost screen you can calculate Cost allocation percentages for co-products using Allocate cost percentages function.
 
Formula: AlexTire – Co-Products
 

 
As the result Cost allocation percentages will be calculated for co-products. In this scenario Cost allocation percentage = 0.1332%
 
Inventory transactions
 

 
Please note that financial cost for Co-Slag co-product inventory receipt transaction is 0.12$ which was calculated as percentage based on total production cost

Appendix B: By-products

 
Please see different scenarios for burden cost for by-products described below. For the sake of clarity in these scenarios only by-product (and no co-product) is the secondary outcome for production process.
 
Scenarios
 
<![if !supportLists]>1.       <![endif]>Burden = None
 
In this scenario the system doesn’t add burden cost related to by-products to total production cost

Formula: AlexTire – Co-Products
 

 
Please note that Burden = None for By-Slag by-product. This means that the system will not add burden cost related to By-Slag by-product to total production cost
 
Inventory transactions
 

 
Please note that financial cost for By-Slag by-product inventory receipt transaction is 0 (Zero) and total cost of production was not increased (no burden)
 
<![if !supportLists]>2.       <![endif]>Burden = Per (Percent)
 
The system allows you to add burden cost related to by-products to total production cost based on Percent, Per series and Per quantity. In this scenario the system will add burden cost related to by-products in accordance with By-product burden amount (Percent) specified manually
 
Formula: AlexTire – Co-Products
 

 
Please note that Burden = Percent for By-Slag by-product. This means that the system will add burden cost of By-Slag by-product as 50% percentage of total production cost into total production cost
 
Inventory transactions
 

 
Please note that financial cost for By-Slag by-product inventory receipt transaction is 0 (Zero) and financial cost of Car tire (AlexTire) inventory receipt transaction increased to 130.57$ because burden cost applied
 
When you End the batch order the burden value is calculated automatically and posted in Route card journal adding to the cost of the batch order
 

 
Production order: AlexTire – Route card journal
 
Route card journal header references Batch order for Car tire (AlexTire)
 

 
Route card journal lines have details of burden cost applied for Car tire (AlexTire) production
 

 
Batch order: AlexTire – Production posting
 
The result of burden cost applied for Car tire (AlexTire) batch order is reflected in Production posting details
 

 
Please see details of Production posting for Car tire (AlexTire) batch order in the table below
 
Route consumption
 
Route consumption is 41.25$ based on burden applied for Car tire (AlexTire) production
 
*Inventory transactions
 
Inventory receipt transaction for Car tire (AlexTire) will be displayed on Voucher transactions screen for route consumption
 
 
*Voucher transactions
 
Ledger voucher provides details on which account was credited for “Production WIP issue”, which account was debited for “Production - WIP” because of burden applied
 
 
*Route transactions
 
Route transactions show the details of burden posting (41.25$)
 
 
Summary: This document describes a primer of process manufacturing approach to Car tires production in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012. The scenario operates with single level formula with co/by-products. Batch order is a main document in process approach which controls manufacturing process and provides a context for cost accounting. In this scenario I highlighted all aspects of manufacturing process including setup, creation, estimation, scheduling, execution and costing. Most importantly I’m giving a detailed practical example of how to implement typical manufacturing scenario using process approach in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012. This provides a foundation for comparison between traditional approach and process approach in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012. Please review other documents in the series to compare traditional manufacturing approach with other manufacturing approaches in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012
