Standard and reference data (SRD) is a core of the common information space of the enterprise (organization), which includes a set of directories, classification codes, standards, regulations used in the operation of the enterprise. The concept of creation of the common information space of a company or a holding assumes that this company uses one item of one system which has sufficient capacities for classification, cataloging, search and restriction of access to the SRD.
The solution ETE: “C&M ECC” (electronic classification code of commodities and materials) gives the possibility to create the effective automated standard and reference data management system within the formation of a single information system of the enterprise.
The use of C&M ECC Automated Information System in the enterprise (corporation/holding company) gives the possibility to:
Centralized storage of basic data on C&M gives the possibility to function in a single information space both to users of this information and to all accounting systems of the enterprise.
The selected subdivision or the group of support of C&M ECC holds responsibility for the actuality of SRD of the enterprise with observance of generally accepted corporate standards of classification and coding. Both the Center and subordinate divisions are able to “speak” the same language ..
C&M ECC subsystems
Users and rights management subsystem
The subsystem is a tool for distribution of roles and permitted functions and rights among users. This is a mandatory tool for data protection and control of behavior of users.
C&M classification subsystem
The subsystem includes all sorts of tools enabling to add, to correct, to update the classification code and the directory of commodities and materials, to track the history of changes, to create various data selections and to export data required (e.g. to Excel).
C&M classification subsystem is based on communications of the C&M directory with the C&M ECC basic classification code (mandatory communication) and with existing classification codes of state, European and global levels (non-mandatory communications). Number of classification codes, including additional ones (classification codes of users), is not limited.
Basic classification code
Basic classification code (BCC) is a tree representation established on the basis of customer needs, in which C&M are divided into classes / subclasses / types / subtypes, etc. (nesting level is not limited). The purpose of partitioning is to place nomenclatures with the same sets of properties, unchangeable property values and the same rules of generation of fields in the same BCC element.
C&M directory includes the list of C&M, services and products manufactured by the enterprise.
Information on any material is presented in the C&M directory in the form of a card with the following structure:
The subsystem is used for grouping and organizing (sorting) nomenclatures based on lines of classification codes and properties of C&M. Nomenclature groups are being used as a basis for generation of reports in other modules of the system.
C&M inventory subsystem
The subsystem is used for the prevention of recording of inauthentic, duplicated and irrelevant C&M in the C&M directory.
The business process of approval of C&M cards is adjusted in accordance with the regulations approved by the company.
Benefits of C&M ECC
C&M ECC system gives the possibility to provide the following in the enterprise:
