There are a couple of codes that need to be configured before we can start building our Lean Manufacturing processes. The first is a Value Stream, which allows you to segregate out your Lean Manufacturing processes.
NOTE: This is part of the Configuring Lean Manufacturing blueprint series where we show how to configure production processes using the Lean Manufacturing functionality that is built into Dynamics AX 2012.. If you want to see all of the other posts in this series, click here.
How to do it…
To create a new value stream, follow these steps:
- From the Production Control area page, select the Value streams menu item from the Organization folder within the Setup group.
- When the Value Stream maintenance form opens up, click on the New button to create a new Value Stream.
- All you need to fill out in the Value Stream is the Name and the Search Name fields.
- After you have done that, click the Close button to finish.
