The importance Of Having Strong Foundational Data 

Foundational data refers to the basic, primary data that feeds into your supply chain planning software, upon which all subsequent analyses and decisions are based. This could include information about your suppliers, products, logistics, customer demand, and more. 

The quality and accuracy of this foundational data can significantly influence the efficiency of your supply chain processes, the reliability of your forecasting, and the profitability of your operations. If this data is flawed, inaccurate, or incomplete – often described as ‘dirty’ – it can lead to misguided decisions, operational inefficiencies, and ultimately, a compromised return on investment in your supply chain software.

The Effects of Dirty Data on Supply Chain Planning Software

Supply chain planning software, regardless of how advanced it is, cannot deliver a robust ROI if the foundational data is dirty, riddled with inaccuracies, inconsistencies, and errors.

AICA  specialises in product data cleansing, enrichment, and comparison, enabling businesses to maximise the potential of their supply chain planning software and improve their overall supply chain efficiency.

Where Dirty Data Comes In

Dirty data, characterised by errors, duplicates, and missing information, can obstruct supply chain operations, leading to inaccurate demand forecasts, inefficient inventory management, and compromised vendor relationships. Therefore, proper data management is essential for businesses aiming for an optimised and cost-effective supply chain.
