ECCMA Master Data Validator
The eMDV or ECCMA Master Data Validator, is a web-based cataloguing application, which supports a well documented standard industry process to drive business performance through improved definition of what is bought. The functionality of the eMDV is based on the ISO 8000 and ISO 22745 standards.
Simple, improved visibility and search, combined with the ability for requisitioners and procurement staff to use web-based cataloguing to efficiently create standardized purchase order descriptions and classifications, is often all that is needed to start realizing supply chain cost efficiency in preparation for a larger and more comprehensive MDM software initiative.
The eMDV provides a consolidated material and service catalog to help improve visibility across multiple, disparate and disconnected ERP systems, and offers an efficient method to browse for parts information, with detailed search of the material master database for existing or similar items previously ordered or in inventory. The application also incorporates a process to request and validate data from the supply chain.
The eMDV is linked to the ECCMA Open Technical Dictionary (eOTD) and ECCMA Data Requirements Registry (eDRR).
