Master data - the gold of your logistics

Master data for products

Master data is data that remains valid over a longer period of time and describes the characteristics of its carrier. This classically includes supplier, customer and article master data. If typical operational processes such as material procurement are viewed from the data perspective, it quickly becomes apparent that 90-95% of the information in this process is based on master data. Prices, packaging units, suppliers, contact persons, payment terms and delivery times are just a few examples. It is, therefore logical, that correct master data is the be-all and end-all for smooth business processes.

Article master data as the basis for smooth logistics processes

In addition to information on sources of supply and purchase and sales prices, the article master also contains a great deal of data that is highly relevant for logistics processing. This includes, for example, dimensions and weights as well as other attributes that are important for handling, such as fragility, stackability or hazardous material information.

Constant change is a challenge

Keeping product information and master data up-to-date throughout the enterprise resource planning and logistics system, is an increasingly challenging task. Articles, assortments and packaging are constantly changing.  In addition, there are dozens of ways to exchange data, hundreds of product attributes, and business partners who use different data management systems. A measurement discrepancy caused by manual data entry significantly affects many of the downstream processes and can lead to time and budget losses resulting in less profitability.
