The Project Accounting module within Dynamics AX is a great module for anyone that is trying to track time and costs against projects within the organization. It is especially useful because it is fully integrated with all of the other foundation areas of the product like Payables, Receivables, Inventory, the General Ledger and much more so that as you track costs within them they are automatically applied to the project and as you create transactions within Project Accounting, then they are automatically updated within the foundation modules.
When you add in all of the additional functions that are available within the module like collaboration workspaces, worker assignment and scheduling, integration with MS Project and also time and expense entry through portals, then this is definitely a module that you need to get to know.
To help you all, I have published book #12 in the Bare Bones Configuration Guide series that lays the foundation for Configuring Project Management And Accounting Within Dynamics AX 2012, and it is now available for download. The book covers all of these areas related to Project Management:
- Configuring Project Management And Accounting Controls
