MRO Material Master
Maintain ongoing Material Master data quality and compliance using IMA’s advanced web-based Data Governance solution.
Getting your Material Master clean is only half the battle, keeping it that way can be just as challenging without the proper tools and process. Fortunately, IMA offers an innovative web-based Data Governance solution for maintaining long-term data integrity, consistency and compliance. Through a user-friendly web-based interface called uManage, users simply login and submit new item creations and modifications using customized request forms, which follow a role-based workflow to provide efficient data governance and duplicate prevention.
Based on business processes, customer preference and corporate system security policies, IMA offers two Data Governance service options:
The Gatekeeper service model is web-based and non-system integrated. The Gatekeeper process enables completed items (cleansed records) to be returned to Customer via email notification through the uManage portal in a pre-defined load-ready file format (.xls, .txt, .csv).
The Turnkey service model is web-based and requires enterprise system login access for a designated IMA Data Governance Specialist. The Turnkey process enables the designated IMA representative to directly access the Customer enterprise system to directly upload completed items in the live system.
User Roles and Workflow
Populats and submits New Item Creation, Modification, Extension or Suspension request forms within uManage.
Reviews and Accepts or Rejects pending requests within uManage.
IMA Data Governance Team
Receives pending request(s) upon Approver acceptance and performs standardization, enhancement, validation and formatting in accordance with pre-defined corporate standards. Depending on the service model (Gatekeeper or Turnkey), the Data Governance Team will return completed items to the Downloader in a load-ready format, or enter them directly into the live enterprise system (ERP, EAM, CMMS, etc.).
Using the Gatekeeper service model, the Downloader receives completed items in a load-ready file format, which they will enter into the live enterprise system (ERP, EAM, CMMS, etc.).
