This week I wanted to share some information on creating new Products in AX 2012.
The Product structure in AX can seem a bit confusing at first, but there are two main components: Products and Released products. A Product defines the physical attributes of an item, is shared across companies, and is assigned a Product number. A Released product defines the company specific financial, production, and warehousing settings of an item and is assigned an Item number.
In this video, the creation of the item is done from the Released product form. By starting in this form, both the Product and Released product are created at the same time.
More details on this and other processes are available in the AX 2012 Trade manual.
