Understanding Inventory Dimensions In Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

Microsoft Dynamics Ax 2012 gives us the ability to assign a good level of detail to our inventory.

Following are the 9 inventory dimensions that are available in Ax 2012, you can always customize to add more upon your needs :

  1. Size
  2. Color
  3. Configuration
  4. Site
  5. Warehouse
  6. Location
  7. Pallet ID
  8. Serial number
  9. Batch number

To assign these dimensions easily they have been broken down into three dimension groups which can further have the choice of activating/deactivating any particular dimension for that group. The three groups are:

Inventory dimension groups Dynamics Ax

Inventory profile, Owner, GTD number were all added for this client after customization. I have purposely shown you screen shots that have more than just the default inventory dimensions so it can be clear that inventory dimensions can be customized to add more dimensions as needed.
