Data integrity can be under-regarded by managers. So, too, is the impact of data being wrong. Material and parts are routed to the wrong locations. Inventory is not available in the volume the computer says is on hand. Bills of material are incorrect, and materials are not purchased as needed.
For more than 50 years, Oliver Wight’s experts have taught this course on how to maintain the integrity of master data. Participants learn how to keep master data accurate in planning systems. They also learn how to create ownership and accountability for the various master data elements in a company.
When master data is accurate, it is the foundation for creating valid plans and schedules. Companies see improvements in productivity, supplier performance, and on-time customer deliveries.
