Security and transparency in your master data processes

Our Fiori solution for the integration of your customer-specific wishes into the SAP environment (in ECC / S/4Hana). The user-friendly interface increases acceptance, significantly reduces errors and makes you fit for the future.

Building classification structures (ECLASS and others) and hierarchies in SAP, made easy. This solution not only creates your complete classification data in SAP but also all the requested basic material data. You can conveniently decide between single and mass data creation. Pure SAP module.

The Synchro module synchronizes your material data, classification structures and content from two systems. It enables automated success control and offers specific options regarding the export quantity or the export period.

The classification module provides you with independence as you can manually classify data completely on your own. It allows you to build your classification using your know-how, “human intelligence” – consisting of classes, properties, property values and evaluations for your materials. Available as web and offline version.

The ticket system is a module for processing global material master data requests in the form of tickets. Each request generates a ticket (single ticket, multi-ticket). Workflows are secure and logical. Statistics and archiving of throughput times provide excellent transparency. In addition, the use is possible internally as well as externally, i.e., D&TS can also process your tickets and handle your classification.

The knowledge database includes numerous supplier catalogs and is constantly growing. For both existing and newly created materials, it provides classified standard and catalog parts and enriches your material master data. An integrated mapping system connects customer data with catalog data. The integration of additional customized catalogs is possible at any time.

Our Optimizer is the generic term for integrated and customer request-based sets of rules. Using simple keywords, the system recognizes which class the materials belong to, fills in the attributes independently, harmonizes the attribute values and displays the filling level. In addition, the system has a duplicate check function.

In the supplier portal, your suppliers themselves can process their data as desired and enrich it with information. Through a password-protected access, the supplier only gets access to his delivered products, enriches them and allocates the class if necessary.

Finding data instead of searching for it. Using Search, you can quickly and smartly find – based on a search algorithm similar to Google – your materials in the cloud. Search’s word analysis detects spelling errors and suggests the correct spelling.

* Potential duplicate query in the customer system by full-text search or differentiated property search
* Searching and finding material in the knowledge database (classified standard and catalog parts) by full-text search or differentiated property search
* Automatic material creation in SAP

SAP S4/HANA Conversion Scenarios

New implementation

NON- SAP ERP-SYSTEM
SAP ERP-SYSTEM
Cloud
On-Premise

Greenfield approach

In the so-called greenfield approach, the existing ERP system is abandoned and a completely new system is implemented. Therefore, the company starts from scratch – or on a greenfield site. The relevant business solutions and data from existing SAP and/or non-SAP ERP systems are transferred step by step.

Upgrade to a new platform

SAP ERP-SYSTEM
On-Premise

Brownfield approach

The so-called brownfield approach, on the other hand, is suitable for companies that want to maintain their individualizations and changes. Here, the existing systems get an upgrade to the new version of the business suite. In the process, they will be converted to S/4 HANA step by step.

Landscape transformation

SAP ERP-SYSTEM A
SAP ERP-SYSTEM B
Cloud
On-Premise

Landscape transformation

In this approach, several, already existing SAP systems are technically consolidated in a newly built S/4HANA system.

It is never too early to prepare

A lot of work in the preparation phase is independent of the selected conversion scenario. Above all, this includes adjusting your material master data to the new system. This task can be addressed before deciding on a specific path to SAP S/4HANA which facilitates the subsequent conversion phase.

How much attention you devote to this topic entirely depends on your requirements for data quality (and quantity) and ultimately also influences the time required for the conversion. Keep in mind that data in SAP S/4HANA is stored in precious main memory, and here you want to see only the important and current data. Older (and outdated) data or even duplicates should be cleansed or archived in advance.

Prepare now before it’s too late and start with high data quality in the new SAP system. We will clean up your data.

it.mds

The master data tool it. master data simplified considerably simplifies data maintenance and increases data quality at the same time. All information on rules and dependencies as well as on process control is managed in it.mds – this way, the intangible knowledge is no longer stored in the minds of the employees, but is always available independent of them.

 

D&TS will be happy to support you with the implementation

Contact us

The tool maps all rules for creating and maintaining master data in a company: Who is allowed to create, release and change which data? How can you make sure that only allowed fields are changed? And how can this be documented? Evading the rules is impossible. The amount of master data information to be maintained manually is also reduced by up to 90%. If a material has 3615 fields at 60 locations, it.mds reduces the number of fields to 200. This minimizes errors while increasing data quality and integrity – across all locations: In just 60 seconds, a material can be created at 60 locations. At the same time, master data is more closely linked to company processes.
it.mds can be connected to external systems such as PLM or CAD and can be used for data migration and cleansing via LSMW.

Material short text generation

Everybody knows this: The first search for materials in SAP is often performed using the material short text. And why not? The search function can quickly be called and the first results can be examined immediately. A major challenge is to describe an article with only 40 digits. The Material short text generation tool supports this by automatically deriving the material short text from a set of classification attributes.

D&TS will be happy to assist you from implementation to customer service.

Contact us

With the material short text generation, you can create consistent material short texts, rule-based per class:

  • In the desired language
  • On the selected material type
  • And according to the rule definition, for example, prefixes and suffixes can be used for enrichment.

For ongoing operation, the material short texts can be generated in the background on a class-wide basis. Whether the rules are correct, can be tested in advance by simulation. Likewise, the same functionality can be used to create the “Size/Dimension” field or the “Purchase Order Text” uniformly. This should make different article descriptions a thing of the past, even in external presentation, e.g., in spare parts catalogs or web stores.
