One of the most important aspects of any Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) or Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) implementation or upgrade projects is the foundation of Master Data. Quality Master Data is at the core of these systems, whether focused on Maintenance and Operations (as an Enterprise Asset Management system typically is) or on the Finance and Supply Chain (as an Enterprise Resource Planning system tends to be.)
PiLog has the data cleansing and classification experience to start your implementation off on the right foot with clean, complete, and de-duplicated data. When evaluating your data strategy for your ERP or EAM implementation, ask these questions:
- Is data for these systems coming from multiple sources?
- Is it likely that there are duplicates among the materials, services, vendors, and customer data?
- When were the data linkages last validated for completeness and correctness?
- Are you adding new functionality that requires the addition of more fields for common data, such as materials and services?
Data conversions are often the most tedious and risky portions of an ERP or EAM implementation. Many times, system integrators will push that task directly onto the plate of the client team. Don’t go it alone. Leave nothing to chance. Engage The Master Data Experts™ at PiLog.
