Once the Kanbans have been assigned to a Work Cell they will then be visible to the users through the Kanban Board for Process Jobs and they will be able to report the jobs started and completed through a single screen.
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 report job updates through the Kanban Board for Process Jobs, follow these steps:
- From the Production Control area page, select the Kanban board for process jobs menu item from the Lean manufacturing folder within the Common group.
- When the Kanban board for process jobs opens, you will see all of the production jobs that have been assigned to the work cell.
- To start a job, just select the Kanban record, and click the Start button in the Production group of the Manufacture ribbon bar.
- Once the job has been completed, click the Complete button in the Production group of the Manufacture ribbon bar.
How it Works…
If we look at the inventory for the item, then we will see the inventory has been adjusted by the reporting of the item complete.
