The benefit of such a project, is in reducing the cost of capital, reducing storage costs, as well as to minimize the cost of search. Professor Ulrich Manz, Darmstadt University, who moderated the master data day, was entered in a final post on the influence of master data on the working capital. This proven and at the same time very strong influence he sees as an important reason to write a strategic dimension to master data. Nico Michels, head of product data management of Fresenius Medical care, was the introduction of PDM-system PRO.FILE”before. The harmonisation of part of master data in advance is central for the introduction. These include for him: a Produktionsneutrales management of technical data about all Sites, redundant-free management of the technical characteristics with distribute Norn – short descriptions, version / revision-controlled joins the part of descriptive documents to the characteristic defined part tribes, integrated use of the classification and characteristics for the native CAD data management (M-CAD, E-CAD), integrated use of classification and characteristics for the production of technical documents of approval, consistent classification over the entire life cycle of the parts with views-related characteristics (technical, operational, etc.). The classification of construction elements is addressed in a next step of the project. Here is the reuse of design principles.
Further, a derivative to be developed by pivotal technical descriptions. Dr. Jorg Schumacher senior technical materials Manager, BASF SE, Member of the Board of the eCl@ss e.V., explained how at BASF SE the use of harmonised technical master data in business processes is realized. He showed an example of the asset life cycle of a plant the trade-off between the data requirements from the perspective of the operator and the supplier on. The presented concept of integrated master data in BASF SE largely implemented: relevant materials the functional specifications (planned as”) and the detailed descriptions of built-in materials (as built”) in a consistent, machine-readable form are available.
