Creating an application for global management of material master data. This application is filled in part automatically with SAP data (parent plant) and in part manually (branches via intranet/ASP pages).
The following specific functions are provided: automated transfer and conversion of global master data from SAP R/2 and R/3 to an SQL server database; maintaining the master data and intranet settings via Access; displaying global master data via intranet/Internet; entering global master data via intranet/Internet. As part of the support project, the application is expanded after the functional remit was altered.
The application is based on an SQL 7 Server database. Branches and customers can access their data in the intranet/Internet. The intranet/Internet settings and internal management and maintenance are carried out by the specialist departments via an Access 97 application.
