Does your company suffer from poor data quality (duplicates, incomplete data records)? Does the search for materials fail due to missing system? Are there no clear rules on who is allowed to create and maintain data records? Is there a lack of processes for cross-departmental data creation and maintenance? If you answer “yes” to at least one of these questions, you should take a closer look at your master data.
In our MDM Excellence Workshop 360 Degree, we provide you with an overview of the potential of your master data from its creation in engineering/maintenance to its end-of-life status. In this workshop, you will learn how to use a modern MDM (master data management) to generate sustainably high data quality, which then has a positive effect on the efficiency of your processes and ensures cost savings throughout the company.
Many companies face similar challenges in optimizing the data quality of their material and product master data. Which ones are you facing?
There is an Excel workbook, or an Access application – employees often use their own tools to search for and maintain their material master data. The tool may help individuals complete their work, but it is the source of data inconsistency and that may cause losses of information.
Provide your employees with a tool that combines all relevant information into a single point of truth and is directly linked to your ERP system. If your employee simply finds his material via your ERP system, he will not retain any shadow systems. This way, you will create transparency in all departments while reducing administrative efforts.
Different employees have different views of designations for materials or for entering master data. This results in individual designations, spelling errors both in the material short texts and in the units of measurement and quantity, in materials, etc. Furthermore, duplicates are created in the system.
Defined workflows and processes speed up the entry of new materials while also ensuring the desired quality. Modern MDM solutions such as product databases can also create your data in the system with exact designations and information.
Insufficient material groups or missing data structures impede strategic initiatives for maintenance, warehouse, purchasing, leading to poor processes. This can cause high costs all along the supply chain.
Standardized classification systems such as ECLASS, ETIM, UNSPSC provide you with a uniform structure. Classification provides a common basis for your processes and turns data into information. This way, procurement, marketing, sales and corporate management benefit equally.
Together, we will build a cross-departmental understanding of the MDM challenges ahead.
Based on the status quo (ACTUAL analysis), we will develop, together with you, strategies, goals and specific measures for your master data management project considering your goals and our experience.
