MCat 2.2. Features

Standardisation Capability

Mcat 2.2 is compatible with various standards for maintaining MRO master data, including Auslang, NATO Codification System (NCS) and United Nations Standard Products and Services Code (UNSPSC).

Multiuser and Roles

MCat 2.2 allows regulation of user’s roles and access. Without disrupting the MRO master data, security clearance can be gradually raised to enable new users to gradually familiarize themselves with the system.

Multi-Projects

MCat 2.2 accommodates multiple projects with separate MRO master data and cataloguing standards and allows companies to maintain their supply catalogue information for each site or industry separately.

Bulk Change

Often due to various user needs, bulk data needs to be changed. Bulk change can be used for multiple functions, such as assigning catalogue items to cataloguers, naming processes, processing quality assurance, etc.

Customizable Descriptive Pattern

MCat 2.2 allows users to customize and maintain the descriptive patterns that will be used to keep the data consistent by creating their own or using available cataloguing standards.

Duplication Validation

During the catalogue cleansing process, duplication can happen when users assign a new name and when the process re-sequences MRO master data. This feature ensures that there is no duplication in the cleaned data.

Paving the Way to Optimized Inventory
Studies have shown that companies with more than 10,000 line items of stock, who have never seriously addressed Supply Cataloguing Standards, will have up to 1500 duplicated items. That is a lot of capital tied up in unnecessary stock.

Based on user requirement

Material cataloguing is not a complex discipline. Simply put, cataloguing is a means of unambiguously describing materials.

The process is called data standardization or data cleansing and comprises the following 5 simple steps:

  • Sort alphabetically
  • Place the noun first and re-sort
  • Format data, re-sequence qualifiers and re-sort
  • Apply encoding standards
  • Conduct full research, i.e., examine actual item and use standard names and abbreviations
