There is nothing like uniform master data management. A solid database is an absolute requirement for every entrepreneurial success. With production locations, business units with various histories, and development centers whose activities span the globe, the question is asked very quickly about how master data can be kept in multiple SAP systems and possibly also non-SAP systems in a uniform way.
With HPC master data management, uniform SAP material numbers and transparent management, as well as master data monitoring, can be defined. Therefore, it is first determined which objects are relevant for distribution and which data on the object ultimately should be distributed to what system. If the routines for this are clear, the planning for the initial transfer as well as the routine regarding the cycle and extent of the transfer of data changes can be determined.
A cockpit serves as a better overview in which the transfer of data changes can comfortably be seen: You will retain an overview of the objects, whether, for example, updates in the target systems can lead to master data changes not being transferred, or whether a routine has cycled through.
Operating under the name Caterpillar Energy Solutions, the Mannheim-based company MWM GmbH has replaced a self-developed MS-Access based application for master data with the proven HPC solution which allows for an inter-divisional management of master data (from change request over master data maintenance to After-Sales-Support.)
