Read Part 1: Managing a Data Cleansing Process for Material or Service Master Data - Part 1
Structured Master Data
After the cataloguing process, structured master data is generated, and this wil be your key to the data cleansing process. It is composed of identification and characteristic data. The identification data can be a manufacturer's number/name, part number and or drawing number/standard reference number.
In this part, both identification and characteristic data are represented in the form of property-value that are contained in the dictionary.
Rendering Names and Descriptions
The name that we entered manually is different with automated rendered name. Can be observed in the consistency of the terminology and the formatting of the name and descriptions. It is very expensive to build a search engine that is tolerant of a lack of consistency in names and descriptions. For example, "Ball Bearing" and "Ball-Bearing", simple space of change in character can cause items to be missed because to a computer these are very different.
Automating the process of creating names and descriptions through Application not only creates consistency in the use of terminology and formats but also consistency across the names and descriptions of all items that belong to the same class.
Item names and descriptions need not to be static, in the abilitito change them, as required is one of the more useful features of an item master. What does not change is the material number.
