Driving Operational Excellence
Data standardization is a quintessential practice in the world of MRO. Bad data leads to bad decisions as MRO items described inconsistently, inadequately, or incorrectly can lead to maintenance delays, production downtime, expedited shipments, duplicate item creations, excess stock, and unauthorized purchases. This problem is common to all industries and the solution is to clean, standardize and enrich existing data. Leading practices indicate that once data standardization is achieved, a structured catalog process must be implemented and adhered to. Catalog management enhances sustainability and data governance within an organization. Using the MRO3i™ application’s item profiler is the technology to quickly identify all parts with certainty, and populate any missing part attributes critical to ensure enriched data.
