Optimizing SAP® master data
Efficient creation, maintenance and administration of material master data
Reduce errors in master data management
A solution for your material management
Improve the quality of your SAP master data with EASY
Fully automated material management in four steps
An employee – an engineer, for example – requires new material and fills out the basic data 1 & 2. They see only the fields which are important to them in their customized view. If needed, they can attach documents to the request.
The master data center receives a “work item,” checks the request, and can return it to the requester if there are errors.
The system proactively indicates potential duplicates. The material descriptions and drawing numbers are used, among other things, for the check. The check can be individually expanded entirely according to your requirements.
Basic data, classification data, and document links are created completely automatically for all company’s plants, not just one.
Different plant views can be defined through a control table, independently of the material type. The system creates the relevant views for the defined plants completely automatically. Individual departments, such as Purchasing or Dispatch, can also be custom controlled to maintain plant views manually.

The quality of the master data is crucially important, particularly in global plant engineering. Because only through optimized SAP master data and high transparency – in the form of quickly “purchase requisitionable” materials in the system, for example – can critical advantages be generated. In the case of this EASY customer, that includes, among other things, an annual reduction of process costs in the high six-figure range and significantly reduced personnel costs.

In a large cosmetics company which markets in 23 countries around the world, the material master system and material destruction process take on whole new dimensions, because new products are added depending on the season and herbal medicine products have a limited shelf life as well. The EASY solution used here for automated material master systems and material destruction shortens the cycle times and provides transparency through efficient process documentation.

The expense of product changes is generally very high, since all departments, from development to purchasing, check if materials were ordered, if a change is technically feasible and if it is economically profitable. The customer had to struggle with several phone calls, e-mails and five different order forms. Thanks to the EASY solution for digital change management in SAP, the process is now coordinated and flows quickly.
