4 Ways Cloud Benefits Life Sciences Businesses

What can your Life Sciences Company Accomplish in the Cloud?

In our new guide we’ll share the 4 reasons why life sciences and the cloud belong together!

In a life science business, there is no lack of data related to product development, clinical trials, production (in-house and contract manufacturing), quality assurance, costing, the supply chain and other areas of the operation. How do you make sense of it without investing in compliance, data processing and analytical technologies?

In the cloud, life science companies can take advantage of the most powerful analytical tools available today. The cloud also supports your growth with cost controls or profit erosion. As leading life science companies are undergoing transformation into digital business and other are preparing for transformation initiatives to become compliant, more relevant and more competitive, the cloud is the single most important enabling element.

“What-If” Costing using Dynamics AX 2012 R3

Microsoft Dynamics AX offers a nice set of tools for quickly performing a “what if” analysis on the impact of price changes (labor costs, material costs, or both) on the standard cost of manufactured items with multi-level bills of materials.

A high-level summary of the process is as follows:

  1. Setup a Cost Version of type = Planning that has a Fallback Principle = Active costs
    • This allows us to define “what-if” costs where applicable, while referring back to the current standards wherever a “what-if” cost is not entered.
    • This allows us to run the what-if analysis while only having to key into the system the incremental changes
  2. Make the proposed changes to the labor rates and/or raw material costs at any level in the product structure/BOM, assigning the changes to the new “What-If” costing version.
    • Update the price in the Cost Category form to perform what-if analysis based on labor rate changes
    • Update the cost price of an item on any level of the BOM/Formula to perform what-if analysis based on material purchase price changes
  3. Run a Cost Calculation for the “What-If” costing version on the top-level FG item.
