MRO Data Audit

The MRO Data Audit is the first and very important step to assess a company’s data quality and it’s fitness for a given purpose. Data Audit is a multilayered discovery process that involves multiple stakeholders, so we can take a deep dive into the MRO material master data. Steps involved in the Data Audit process are:

  • Identify business pain points
  • Acquire and analyze material and vendor data
  • Segregate the data based on quality and nature of issues
  • Determine corrective and preventive steps needed
  • Develop a report with findings and recommendations

The Audit will answer questions such as: 

  • How bad is the data?
  • What are the main problems?
  • How is bad data affecting the business?
  • How can the issues be resolved?
  • How can you prevent bad data from entering the systems?

Vendor Data Analysis

During the preliminary Data Audit, we also review the Vendor Master to detect duplicate records, incorrect / inconsistent descriptions, or outdated vendor information. Some vendor classification codes, such as NAICS codes, aren’t available, making it hard to build a comprehensive vendor portfolio and to consolidate vendors.

MRO Data Audit Methodology

Partlinq’s data audit is powered by a proprietary methodology that yields accurate analysis and valuable insights. A sample of material master data will be analyzed statistically to determine error types and inconsistent patterns. This will help us identify the broad range of MRO spare parts data. Beyond identifying data quality issues, data quality analysis can reveal their underlying causes.
