Process optimization 4.0: material master data at the core

The digital networking of the business world is taking off: productivity is increasing, new business models are developing. It is a matter of mastering complex processes and efficiently designing and automating procedures.

Digitization and automation: clear advantages

Take logistics as an example: Production and logistics processes should be more and more closely and intelligently networked in order to be able to produce more flexibly and efficiently, and thus cost-effectively. Material master data are at the core of this process. If they are flawed, the purchasing process, production, or customer delivery may falter, for example. Those are good reasons for optimizing your material master data management.
