What people who have worked with us have to say
Our indirect item master had many issues. Bad data quality caused us to lose productivity and experience higher inventory values. Net Results Groups solutions helped us get back on the right track with better standards and methods for cleansing data, and they created a more efficient process to ensure we maintain the quality of our MRO data using their MRO3i tool for ongoing data governance. MRO3i is intuitive and easy to use.
My company wanted an asset hierarchy for its production facilities and establish an enterprise model at its largest location with multiple production buildings that can be used as the standard for the 27 other plant locations in the enterprise. We struggled to get this process working efficiently. NRG provided us with the expertise and the methodologies that we now use across the enterprise. NRG walked down the assets with our team of SME’s to create the hierarchies with a multitude of data using their MRO3i technology. This sped up the process and allowed us to then start creating equipment parts lists (BOM’s) for each equipment at the lowest level of the hierarchy. Because of NRG’s success with the development of the asset hierarchy, we engaged them to also work on the BOM’s.
We acquired several paper mills and box plants that had to be integrated into the corporate system. Integrating these operations into our enterprise required us to convert the acquired item master data from an antiquated enterprise system to our SAP enterprise system. We also wanted to avoid creating duplicate data between the two item masters. NRG’s team came onsite with their MRO3i tool to accelerate this process for us and meet the “go live” deadline for the new mills. During this process, we realized we had an outdated taxonomy of noun modifier templates to help standardize the data. Net Results Group their library of over 5,000 new templates to ensure we met ISO standards required by our corporation to give us a competitive advantage and lowering the cost per part for our inventory.
My company invested approximately $60 million in new equipment at three plants and needed to identify the required parts list for each of the equipment items to make sure they were added to our item master before the equipment went live. We had to establish critical spares identification for the parts and make smart decisions on what items to maintain in inventory. Net Results Group’s experts using their MRO3i technology created these parts list faster than we could have done. They also trimmed down the equipment manufacturer’s suggested list which was overkill. NRG also helped us avoid duplication by identifying items we already had in our item master. We saved money by not overbuying, and kept inventory values lower, with the right min/max levels for the applicable parts. NRG used its library of parts information to cross reference the manufacturer’s OEM items to a commercial equivalent spare, which lowered spend. NRG did a great job for us in many facets.
