To solve this problem, we leveraged AI Data Cleanser to –
- Identify and tag obsolete materials in ERP systems based on transactional/inventory/PO analysis.
- Identify and tag duplication of materials within each ERP and across ERP systems; assign duplicates to a master record.
- Match these to existing masters in MDG if they exist or add them to MDG if they don’t exist.
- Cleansed and corrected material master data to allow the business stakeholders to rationalize materials and suppliers.
- Obsolete materials were tagged and made non – available for further use/ordering, thereby improving procurement processes.
