In the Production module, run the work centers, ledger setup report.
Without selecting "accept error," when can a production order be reported as finished?
When reporting on the last operation from a route or job card journal.
What can task groups on work centers identify?
Alternative work centers
When is 'Operation scheduling' used?
When a rough estimate of the time frame for production is required.
Which of the following statements reflect the differences between 'Operation scheduling' and 'Job scheduling' in Microsoft Dynamics AX? Choose the 2 that apply.
Operation scheduling is date scheduled and Job scheduling is date and time scheduled.
When an operation specifies a work center group, Operation scheduling schedules to the work center group, Job scheduling schedules to a specific work center.

What tool can be used to evaluate existing inventory transactions and calculate minimum inventory levels?
Safety stock journal
There are 100 units of an item on hand. A sales order for 40 units with a delivery date in 20 days is entered. Why would Master scheduling create a planned purchase order to cover the sale, instead of using the existing inventory?
Positive days is less than 20.

The ledger accounts specified on cost categories attached to the operations.
What best describes the difference between Master planning and Forecast planning in Microsoft Dynamics AX?
Master planning is usually a short term plan, referred to as net requirement. Forecast planning is typically a long term plan based on estimates.
All items in inventory have a batch number. The batch number is not being printed in the production picking list journal. What can be done to ensure the batch number is printed on the report?
Set it up when printing the production picking list journal.
Intercompany often involves 'make or buy' decisions. Which of the following is NOT true of the activities surrounding these decisions?
The decision to make must be made before Intercompany master planning principles can be implemented.
What reduction principles can be applied to the Forecast plans?
Open order, percent
Production orders are currently being assigned using a number sequence. However, the company you are working for wants the production order number to be ten digits in length, with the first four digits representing the current year. How can this be accomplished?
Update the format of the production number sequence to '2007######', where 2007 is the current year. The format will need to be manually updated each year.
Which of the following is affected when specifying scrap for an operation on a route? Choose the 2 that apply.
Which of the following actions is NOT possible in the BOM Designer?
By clicking on the operation in the route, all related items can be seen.
When manufacturing prototypes, it is desirable to have all ledger transactions posted to separate ledger accounts specifically created for prototype accounting. Which of the following is the best practice to accomplish this?
Create production groups with separate accounts for prototype production orders.
One of your company's work centers is going to be used for two hours in each eight hour shift for training. What adjustment needs to be made for this work center so only six hours of production work is planned for this work center shift?
Set the operations scheduling percentage to 75.
Using an 'Assemble to order' manufacturing strategy; a company assembles vendor supplied components into the products it sells. Item coverage plans are used to manage adequate inventory levels of the vendor supplied components. What BOM line type should be assigned to these vendor supplied components in the BOM of the deliverable product?
When substituting an item in a BOM on a started production order, it is necessary for the production planner to delete the material consumption from one of the BOM lines. Material consumption is reported and posted on the production order. What should be done to properly record the actual material consumption?
Create a new production picking list journal and create two lines one to decrease, and the other to enter consumption on the new item.
What occurs if a production order is released and it has not been estimated or scheduled?
The estimation and scheduling steps are performed automatically.
Which of the following are rules for creating the operation numbers for a simple network route? Choose the 3 that apply.
The last operation in the route must have zero in its next operation field.
The first operation in the route must have the lowest operation number.
The operations are linked together by the next operation field, which contains the operation number of the following operation.
Which of the following is the most accurate way to describe the work center structure in Microsoft Dynamics AX?
The companys work centers are divided into two levels consisting of work center groups and work centers.
During scheduling, what is the best method to account for the extra use of capacity due to material scrapped?
Set up a scrap percentage in the route.

It may be split up until the total scheduled quantity is started.
What setup determines whether items for a production can be automatically reserved?
Production order setting
When setting up prerequisite work center groups and work centers in the Microsoft Dynamics AX Production module, what is true?
The work center group must be created before the work centers in that group can be created.
When running Master scheduling, reduction keys are used to reduce the forecast sales and purchase requirements. How is the reduction key applied to the item?
By the coverage group.
What type of planned order is NOT possible after running Master scheduling?
A company has limited capacity on its' machines, but the capacity of the operators is unlimited (already set on the work center). The team manager wants to plan on the machinery and see the required staff hours in the production plan. What setup BEST meets the managers requirements?
