The position ensures that all master data that need to be supplied by SCM are supplied for all ES EMEA products in a consistent way into the appropriate platforms, thereby enabling complete data supply for EWS, Order Center, Product Data Hub etc.

Finally, the position ensures that the product data is consistently managed during the NPI processes and throughout the entire life cycle of the products.



Your key deliverables :


  • Harmonize the way SCOE-relevant product data are supplied across all the distributions centers in ES EMEA: Meckenheim/Germany, Brno/Czech Republic, Coalville/UK, Turkey, Ukraine, Russia, Dubai and South Africa.
  • Harmonize the way SCOE-relevant product data are aligned with the distribution centers in the AMER and APAC region.
  • Ensure that there is one single place for data entry for each product no matter in how many different distribution centers the product is handled, including those outside EMEA.
  • Identify the data that are supplied by SCOE on behalf of the divisions but must be originated out of the supply chain processes: all measures and weights that are not manageable in the manufacturing plants.
  • Identify those activities traditionally managed by SCOE that in fact are in the ownership of the divisions and drive for a change process to have the data management done in the right place, e.g. the determination of device weights to the manufacturing plant.
  • Drive for changes in data management habits that can improve and ease the existing processes, e.g. the introduction of style numbers for easier clearing of stocks.
  • Describe situations where inconsistent definitions of roles and rights in ERP systems hamper a sustainable and reliable data management.
  • Address habits in the manufacturing plants that burden the supply chain, e.g. supply of devices that do not correspond to their specifications, e.g. devices described as packed being supplied without package.
  • Drive for a better alignment of packaging units and delivery units in order to eliminate waste of resources caused by considerable manual efforts required by sale of quantities that collide with the packaging, e.g. the most sold Eaton item in the world being packaged by 50 off while the delivery unit is one.
  • Address inconsistency in the unique identifiers which, as a consequence of unaligned ERP systems cause the SCOE organization to manage satellite processes.
  • Define the metrics that enable the SCOE organizations to document the efficiency of its data management.
  • Gradually take over the lead for local (former REGI) products traditionally managed in the CSOs without leadership in the divisions.
