Master data management for better data quality

Data often takes many different paths within a company: sometimes it’s the business card of a potential customer, other times it’s different container sizes of a product or a change of contact person with your supplier – but it’s always important to have an overview and to be able to make the latest version of a master data record available to all parties involved. Reliable master data management is therefore indispensable. This is the only way to ensure effective and efficient processes – regardless of industry or company.

Master data management as a basis for Industry 4.0

Enormous amounts of data are generated these days, especially in production environments. In order to organize these and to get the maximum benefit from them, strategic handling of all data is required. These new processes place ever higher demands on the definition and quality of master data as a result of developments in Industry 4.0 and IIoT. In addition to the master data of products and the item master data, master data on the characteristics of the product over the entire life cycle is being generated increasingly. This serial number-related master data must be stored and evaluated in a structured manner.

It’s time to introduce a master data tool

Do you work with a rapidly changing product range or a short time-to-market period? Do your goods always have to be clearly identifiable and master data errors have major consequences for production and customers? Do you want to avoid unnecessary storage and provision costs due to duplicates and incorrect data? Or is complete and consistently maintained data the first milestone on your way to Production 4.0? Our solution for master data management will save you a lot of time and eliminates unnecessary errors in your production processes. This means that the investment pays for itself after just a few months.
