In Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2 CU6 we expanded the item tracing functionality to provide consolidated, and more actionable, visibility into the source and destination of items and raw materials in the supply chain.
For example, manufacturers can trace items, raw materials, or ingredients back to the vendor, and forward through the production and sale of the finished product.
Item tracing can help manufacturers comply with regulatory requirements, and helps quality officers and production managers analyze and take action to address variances in the quality of products and materials.
Here is a short list of the new capabilities:
- Determine how much of the item or raw material has been shipped, and to which customers.
- Identify any planned shipments that include the item or raw material.
- Locate production orders that use the item or raw material.
- Find out which vendor the item or raw material was purchased from.
There is a more documentation available on TechNet, so please continue reading from there :o).

Please note, that the basic item tracing functionality was always available inside all previous versions of Dynamics AX and is still available in Microsoft Dynamics AX R2 CU6. The new item tracing functionality is an addition to the existing system, to provide an easier overview of the source and destination of items, and facilitate business actions from one place.
