Experience has shown that master data maintenance is a weak point with negative side effects for many companies. For instance, weak master data can often lead people to bypass planning in the SAP system. As a result, the SAP system is no longer used as the principal system and its benefits to the user are lost.
The GIB Suite is fully integrated into SAP and therefore has access to the data in the standard SAP system, including data from material documents, MRP runs, BOMs, task lists, and so on. As a result, the implementation does not require a special depth of master data. Since well maintained master data is an important factor for success in optimizing supply chain processes, the GIB Suite assists with continuous updates.
