New costing features in Dynamics AX 2012 R3


Dear Readers,

There are couple of nice videos available to show case the new costing features in Dynamics AX 2012 R3. Enjoy!

1: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3 – Inventory aging report

The new inventory aging report works independent of inventory valuation method. It allows users the flexibility of defining aging buckets in preferred intervals and does not distinguish between physical or financial inventory. Aging is computed based on a FIFO algorithm on physical inventory movements. Values in monitory amount are obtained by multiplying with current unit cost as of reporting date

2: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3 – Price compare report

Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3 - Price compare report​

The Price compare report allow users to analyze the economic consequence of adjusting the current active cost or with a proposed pending cost. The built in breakdown capability provides the option to compare cost at a segregated level, allowing insight to which cost group type or cost group are causing the net change of cost. The report allows comparison of Purchase price, Sales price and Cost

More nice features

    Now that InformationSource is decommissioned, could you update the links to the two videos? That 30 minute video on the Inventory Ageing report was the best resource on the topic, and I can't find the it any more.

  2. Sorry for the delayed response Guy. All of the old InformationSource material has been moved to this page:…/IS_HowTo_OtherVideos. These two videos were missing from that page, but they have now been tracked down and uploaded. I have updated the links.
