Master and Transaction Data Management

Automated processes simplify many areas of order management, logistics and production. Most process steps are recorded by computer and filed with the corresponding times and quantities (e.g. throughput times, restocking times, batch sizes). However, results are only as reliable as the quality of the data recorded. Especially when it comes to planning, disposition and supply processes, data stocks are often complex and not kept up-to-date in such a dynamic market environment. As a result, they do not often meet the requirements made of them.

Particularly due to the fact that master and transaction data form the basis of all company processes, it is imperative that information is flawless, complete, up-to-date and absolutely accurate. Faulty data could cause disruptions, resulting in high costs, impaired processes, errors or even defective components.

Appropriately-designed analysis and optimization processes offer companies additional advantages and also generate new knowledge. For example, they can be used to identify previously-unknown correlations in production. Improvements in the parameters of a production planning and control system (PPS) can then be made on the basis of this information or specific production improvement measures implemented. However, the advantages have to outweigh the effort required to manage master and transaction data effectively. We have developed efficient methods and tools to obtain the quality of data you need:

  • Specific addition and administration of lacking master and transaction data to ensure that you make the right decisions in order management, materials management, planning and production
  • Methodical evaluation and validation of mass data to identify inaccurate and incomplete data sets
  • Definition, structuring, preparation and migration of data before changing over, merging or installing new IT systems
  • Mass data analyses and data mining to identify potentials for improvement in order management, materials management, logistics, planning and production
  • Implementation of efficient business rules and processes to ensure the necessary quality of data in the long term.

Your advantages:

  • Data administration and data quality with a balance between the effort required and advantages gained
  • Minimized effort regarding order management, logistics and production through the avoidance of delays and downtimes due to unrealistic planning
  • The ability to take prompt and systematic action instead of costly ad-hoc measures
  • Regained and increased trust in an automated and accurate data acquisition system. Assurance of a reliable workflow in order management supported by IT
