The maintenance of the material master in SAP is a special challenge in every company. Since correct material master data is the basis for correct business processes, this master data is also particularly critical. Incorrect or incomplete material master data leads to high efficiency losses, as processes can be executed incorrectly and subsequent corrective measures are necessary, which results in time and cost losses.
In order to avoid problems in the master data, central master data teams are often used for maintenance. These teams must ensure that the right information is provided by the relevant departments at the right time. The information is often only communicated via uncontrolled processes, such as e-mails, and without explicit inquiries in the specialist departments, it can happen that corresponding data is not delivered or is delivered too late. This can result in the entire process suddenly stopping because data is missing or incorrect, because there is always an acute need for action, which in addition to the resulting loss of time also increases the risk of errors.
The software solution Coristo SAP Material Master Management (Coristo MMM) allows role-based display, creation and maintenance of material masters in SAP to ensure the protection and provision of correct material master data throughout the entire life cycle of a material master.
