Data Collection

Every data initiative begins with the collection of existing MRO master data. Whether digital data is extracted from a legacy system or requires on-site physical data capture, our resources ensure you get started on the right foot.


On-site Data Capture

For on-site data, IMA’s spare parts experts perform physical part identification, data capture, and data review. A dedicated team of our experts come to your storeroom location equipped with tablets to enter data and import it into a custom mobile app developed by IMA. A typical onsite capture includes elements such as Manufacturer Name and Part Number, Item Description, and Bin Number/Location.​​

Digital Data Extraction

If your company already has a current set of master data, then the IMA Data Specialists extract your current data and translate it into the IMA data schema. If needed, we can instead create a new taxonomy following your company's rules and requirements.


  • ​Search for, identify, and locate parts efficiently

  • Reliably know on-hand quantities

  • Avoid false stock-outs

  • Increase maintenance productivity

  • Identify excess and obsolete inventory

  • Manage assets efficiently and reduce inventory

If your company has any of the following problems, data collection with IMA can make a difference: 

  • Not aware of current inventory 

  • Frequently re-orders spare parts without knowing what is actually needed

  • Unorganized storeroom and unaccounted spare parts
