ISO 8000 Master Data

Does your material master comply with ISO 8000?
Do you receive the specifications of the materials you buy from your supply chain?

Why ISO 8000

ISO 8000 is the new and powerful standard for data quality! For the first time, the world has a complete standard for data quality that covers the exchange format, provenance, accuracy and integrity.

Data and quality of information are widely recognized problems in large and small companies. Incomplete or duplicate records, descriptions of poor quality as well as inaccurate information cause inefficient allocation and use of resources. This can mean up to a 20% increase in direct and indirect costs.

Poor quality data are an obstacle to effective commercialization and the main cause of transparency problems that raise the cost of regulatory compliance.

The roots of ISO 8000 are based on cataloging, the process of describing an article based on its characteristics, as opposed to its identifiers. Descriptions based on characteristic data allow to understand why things are the same or different, and if so, to what extent.
