Some integration and high volume ramping challenges, particularly with BizTalk and SQL Server, but getting sorted out. Outages over time appeared to be more dependent on integration complexity than AX MES.

Microsoft did a reasonably good job supporting the deployment efforts to multiple factories and ongoing stabilization. I don't think that MES was intended for the large enterprise volume and complexity levels our operations required.

Users in some cases were busy and not engaged, so those areas went slower. Configuration by the consultants was good, but at time complicated.
