In addition to many disadvantages, system changes also have one advantage that should not be neglected: They offer the opportunity to "cut old habits", i.e. to clean up and optimize old material data. This process can also be done as a preparatory activity during the "freeze phase" outside of the SAP system. Typical data optimizations are:
- Optimization / introduction of a new commodity group system
- Optimization / introduction of a classification (with feature-based description)
- Harmonization of material short and descriptive texts, also in connection with the use/creation of a company-specific dictionary
Class.Ing has carried out or is currently carrying out a relevant number of such data optimization projects in recent years. Normally, ECLASS is used as the classification standard, often in a reduced and/or adapted way. Class.Ing would be happy to present the process model to you in an individual webinar and share experiences. If you are interested, please arrange an individual appointment at email@example.com.
