Advantages of correct master data
Today, every ERP and WMS requires master data.
The previous, manual entry of article master data has potential sources of error due to the measurement and transmission of results by hand. Correct master data simplifies the entire logistics process in the warehouse many times over: Exact measurement in length, width, height (thus also the volume) and weight optimizes the use and utilization of each warehouse, the capacities are fully utilized. Correct article master data is also very important for shipping: exact measurement allows the optimal means of shipping to be selected. This avoids high postage costs and the use of means of transport (such as trucks or similar) is made more efficient by making the best possible use of space.
Due to the precise detection of the article via laser scan, fewer skilled workers are required: The automated transfer of data to the WMS simplifies warehousing by directly specifying storage locations, warehouse boulders can be cleared immediately and warehouse tourism with tedious searches for articles is avoided. Employees who have previously accompanied these long-lasting processes can now increase their productivity or be deployed in other areas. Economic evaluations are automated and therefore more efficient: Which articles are returned most frequently? Which parts have the greatest longevity?
