To solve this problem, we leveraged AI Data Cleanser to –

                          • Identify and tag obsolete materials in ERP systems based on transactional/inventory/PO analysis.
                          • Identify and tag duplication of materials within each ERP and across ERP systems; assign duplicates to a master record.
                          • Match these to existing masters in MDG if they exist or add them to MDG if they don’t exist.

                          KEY BENEFITS

                          • Cleansed and corrected material master data to allow the business stakeholders to rationalize materials and suppliers.
                          • Obsolete materials were tagged and made non – available for further use/ordering, thereby improving procurement processes.


                          • Out of ~1.5M material records, ~0.5 materials were tagged as obsolete, and ~120-150K master golden material records were created.
                          • Around 12% in downstream cost savings were observed due to reduction in material duplication and supplier rationalization.
