Grundkurs Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0: Die Business-Losung von by Andreas Luszczak

By Andreas Luszczak

Dynamics AX wird von Microsoft als Premium-Produkt für den Mittelstand im ERP-Markt positioniert und bei der Auswahl eines kaufmännischen structures von zahlreichen Unt- nehmen als substitute geprüft oder als Lösung implementiert. Gleichzeitig eignet es sich im universitären Bereich aufgrund seines hohen Integrationsgrades sehr intestine zum Studium der Möglichkeiten eines ERP-Systems. Dennoch gibt es bisher noch kaum praxistaugliche Literatur zur Abwicklung von Geschäftsprozessen mit Dynamics AX. Nachdem ich nicht nur als Projektleiter in zahlreichen Implementierungsprojekten tätig struggle, sondern auch Lehrveranstaltungen zu Dynamics AX an der FH Joanneum abhalten und an der Universität Linz vortragen durfte, entstand die Idee zu vorliegendem Buch. Mein Ziel ist es, damit einen kompakten Einstieg in Anwendung und Prozessabwicklung mit Dynamics AX zu bieten. Daneben soll über eine durchgehende Betrachtung der Ke- prozesse aber auch erfahrenen Benutzern die Möglichkeit gegeben werden, zentrale T- males rasch nachschlagen zu können. Der Aufbau wurde daher so gewählt, dass die durchgängige Darstellung von Geschäf- prozessen der Kernbereiche Vorrang vor der Behandlung von Teilaspekten hat. Eine e- heitliche Struktur der Kapitel soll nicht nur den Integrationsaspekt unterstreichen, sondern auch die Einarbeitung in Dynamics AX erleichtern. Am Beginn jedes Kapitels ist auch ein Abschnitt „Auf einen Blick“ enthalten, der eine Kurzdarstellung des jeweiligen Kernp- zesses enthält. Konsequent aufeinander aufbauende Übungsaufgaben unterstützen das Verständnis der Zusammenhänge.
