Review

This book represents the first valid attempt to take all the ideas that the market has pulled and put them in one place with a degree of structure. The book enables the reader to see how lean and ERP can work together, and provides a platform to help readers in their waste reduction ventures. I commend it to you. --Andrew Rumney, Solutions Director, eBECS Limited (England)

A tremendous resource for understanding the core concepts and software functionality involved in lean manufacturing. --Arijit Basu, Principal Consultant, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Microsoft MVP for Dynamics AX (India)

Invaluable advice for those deploying lean manufacturing practices with Dynamics AX. --Andy Hafer, Director, Dynamics AX User Group

By Cindy L. Hitt on August 14, 2009
Format: Paperback
Our client wanted us to investigate the new Dynamics AX functionality that supports lean manufacturing, so it was a pleasant surprise to find a relevant book on the topic. This book walked us through the conceptual differences between traditional and lean approaches to supply chain management, and provided detailed step-by-step solutions to typical lean scenarios. The explanations for using kanbans to manage lean manufacturing were straight-forward and very helpful, and the numerous diagrams and screen examples really helped us understand how AX could be used. The book provided a short learning curve, which was especially helpful given our time constraints and other consulting responsibilities.

Format: Paperback
The book was well structured and full of helpful hints, recommendations and useful illustrations to assist the reader with understanding how to setup AX in a Lean Manufacturing environment. The index and TOC enable you to quickly zero in on a specific topic of interest. The illustrations and tables were very helpful in communicating concepts. The author identifies the relationships between various lean components, parameter settings, concepts and draws comparisons to traditional SCM approaches. I would recommend this book to anyone considering Lean Manufacturing in an AX environment.

Understanding how to take the core lean manufacturing concepts and apply them to any Dynamics AX implementation in a manufacturing environment is a challenge given the complexities of the manufacturing industry. This book helps lay the foundation on how Dynamics AX can be used for handling kanbans and the different maturity stages of lean. I found the cases studies particularly helpful and would recommend this book as a must read for any organization intending to use Dynamics AX to better manage its supply chain.
