Set up sequence groups

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

Use this procedure to create sequence groups that are used to schedule production. You can assign sequences to a sequence group and then rank these sequences in the order of preference. For example, in the paint industry, color-based paints can have color properties and other attributes, such as latex or enamel. You can create a sequence that contains values for colors that are ranked according to preference in which these colors are ordered or sorted. You can create another sequence that contains values for the type of paint, so that latex is preferred to enamel. You can then assign these sequences to a sequence group, and then rank the sequences so that all the colors that are available for a specified type of paint are sequenced, or all the types of paint that are available for a specified paint are sequenced, according to the ranks of the sequences in the sequence group.

  1. Click Master planning > Setup > Sequencing > Sequence group.

  2. Create a sequence group.

  3. In the Sequence group ID and Description fields, enter an identification code and a description of a sequence group.

  4. In the lower pane, click New to assign a sequence to the specified sequence group.

  5. In the Sequence field, select the identification code of the sequence to assign to the sequence group.

  6. In the Rank field, enter a rank for the specified sequence.

  7. Repeat steps 4 through 6 to add more sequences to the sequence group.
