The cost analysis workspace in the new Microsoft Dynamics AX

I was catching up watching a couple of videos last night and spotted a new workspace which is being shown in the new Microsoft Dynamics AX (aka AX7): the Cost analysis workspace.

Once again we’re seeing functionality that’s been missing (in my case sorely missed) from earlier versions of Dynamics AX – inventory turns and slow moving inventory:

Scroll to the right on this workspace and a couple more graphs appear:

‘Inventory value over time’ – that’s neat, when we marry that up with customer service level we’ll have a great overview of the health of our supply chain.
