Hitachi Solutions America, Ltd., a leading provider of global industry solutions based on Microsoft Dynamics AX and Microsoft Dynamics CRM and US Reseller Partner of the Year, today announced SYN//AX, a new add-on solution designed to maximize the benefits of Microsoft Dynamics AX for the manufacturing industry.

As a component of the company’s new Enterprise Productivity Suite, the new SYN//AX solution includes pre-built functionality and controls that automate and streamline manufacturing systems and processes. It’s flexible and cost-effective compared to other market solutions, and is key to optimizing resource capacity, scheduling resources effectively, and modeling production flows.

Hitachi Solutions' partnership with Microsoft continues to grow as Microsoft encourages partners to develop industry specific solutions. “Our strategy with Microsoft Dynamics AX is to provide a robust platform for game-changing solutions like SYN/AX from Hitachi,” stated Morgan Wheaton, Director of Global Partners for Microsoft Dynamics. “With 100+ years of experience in manufacturing, Hitachi is ideally suited to rapidly and cost-effectively develop line-of-business solutions that drive accelerated business value for their customers through our Global ISV initiative.”

SYN//AX offers Microsoft Dynamics clients the ability to:

  •     Segment production plans to allow multiple planning teams to plan simultaneously
  •     Simulate changes in production quantities, replenishment orders, transfer orders, as well as supplier orders
  •     View a dashboard for the production planner and enable “What if” plan analysis, as well as have a comparative view of the different simulations for better decision-making and firming orders
  •     Get perspective on the different sites and their production capacities enabling them to schedule available resources taking into consideration while managing backlogs of orders

“Advanced planning and scheduling can be complex, and most existing solutions inflexible. SYN//AX offers an innovative perspective on efficiently managing production resources, easily reacting to changes, optimizing planning and scheduling, and speeding time to value,” said Rachael Wonson, Vice President of Business Development, Hitachi Solutions America, Business Solution Group.

Hitachi Solutions will be highlighting SYN//AX and other Hitachi Solutions Enterprise Productivity Suite modules at Microsoft Dynamics Convergence 2014 to be held March 4-7 in Atlanta. See Hitachi Solutions in Booth 2301 to find out more, or visit
