A Microsoft Dynamics AX application is typically upgraded several times during its lifetime. Upgrades may be made to the standard application, or to customized parts of the application. If the application is not designed according to some fundamental principles, upgrading can be expensive and very time-consuming.
This section of the SDK describes the relative cost of changing different types of application objects.
For information about the upgrade process, see the Microsoft Dynamics AX Implementation Guide.
