Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

Product models are created in almost the same manner as standard bills of materials and standard routes. The product model is displayed in the upper part of the Product model form. Use the lower part to specify the items for which the selected product model should be valid. You can create models manually or use the Product model wizard.

NoteNote

This information applies only to Product builder.

  1. Click Product information management > Common > Product builder > Product models. On the Action Pane, click the Models tab. In the New group, click Product model.

  2. In the upper pane, press CTRL+N to create a new line.

  3. In the Name field, type a unique name for the product model.

  4. You can select an item group for the product model in the Item group field.

    If you do this, the items of the selected group will be shown on a separate tab when looking up items to attach to the current product model.

  5. Click Approve to approve the product model.

    The Approved by field will be filled in automatically with the initials of the selected approver, and the Approved check box will be selected. To remove the approval, select the Remove approval check box in the form that appears after you click Approve.

    The Approved by field will be filled in automatically with the initials of the selected approver, and the Approved check box will be selected.
