Augsburg, Mörfelden-Walldorf, 9th of August 2011. RS Components GmbH, a leading distributor in the areas of electronic and automation, is making its product data available in digital form for the strategic parts management PARTsolutions. PARTsolutions is a software solution designed by CADENAS GmbH, an Augsburg software manufacturer, and it contains a certified interface to SAP material management.
For SAP users, the manual creation of material master data is often very time consuming and defective. With the help of PARTsolutions, RS‘s product data is now made available digitally and can be used by PARTsolutions users directly without data loss. This saves RS SAP customers an enormous amount of time while simultaneously lowering costs.
The strategic parts management system PARTsolutions by CADENAS thus enables the master product data from RS to be seamlessly integrated into the SAP material logistics. The integration contains the certification "Powered by NetWeaver" and supports the creation, change and display of material master records.
The digital RS product data contains, among other things, master data such as order number, short and long description, packaging amount, planned time of delivery, European Article Number (EAN), and eCl@ss number. In addition to the general master data information, CADENAS PARTsolutions links directly to the online datasheet.
Creating master data optimally
Through the SAP integration material master data fields are filled automatically with PARTsolutions attributes. If a user selects an RS product dataset in PARTsolutions, the SAP material master data are automatically transferred into the SAP layout template.
Benefits for SAP users
- Significant reduction of effort and time saving concerning the creation of master data
- Automatic data transfer
- No input mistakes, optimization of data quality
- No data redundancy through visualization of duplicates
- Up-to-date master data through continuous catalog updates
- Due to the separated data management in the PARTsolutions catalog, the solution is independent of the functional database
