XFT Material Creation

Mastering Materials Management

Create High-Quality Material Data

The central material master data in your SAP system is the basis for all logistical processes, including warehousing, procurement, and manufacturing. While this is particularly convenient, there is one issue. Before you create a new material master data entry, you should check if it already exists for the corresponding component. Otherwise, redundant entries can easily occur, which may result in double records for a single component. This isn’t just confusing, it can also be very expensive. An example of this would be if your procurement department orders the same part several times without knowing or unnecessarily creates unnecessary extra work for your warehouse.

XFT Material Creation enables you to immediately check if material data is necessary as you create it. All data can be comprehensively prepared, checked, and approved. Only once this is done is the real master data automatically generated. In this way, you improve data quality, work faster, and avoid costly duplicates in logistics.

How It Works

XFT Material Creation enables you to create trial versions of materials and only accept them once they have been tested. You begin by entering the basic material data as usual, but you can also add data sheets, classes, characteristics, and plant allocations. You can then use full-text search to check whether similar material data already exists. As soon as the new data is approved, XFT Material Creation converts the sample data set into real material master data. If required, the software can then create additional, supplementary plant views for new materials.

Benefits

Improved data quality: Redundant materials will no longer be created, and duplicates are avoided completely. This enables you to mitigate errors in subsequent processes.

More cost efficiency: New master data can be created more quickly, efficiently, and securely. Precise material master data enables you to accurately plan resources for storage and to profit from price benefits in procurement.

Integrated workflows: Process steps are allocated with workflows so that all required material views are promptly created in the system.

Greater transparency and compliance: Thanks to a guided process, no entries are forgotten and compliance with legal requirements and standards is supported. Necessary documents are always available, and every action and decision is comprehensively documented in the system.
