    Solteq to improve the quality and usability Normet’s data classification

    Solteq has launched a project to harmonize the data classification of the Normet Group, which manufactures underground mining and tunnel machinery and equipment. The cooperation agreement was signed in June 2012 and the project is expected to be completed in spring 2013.

    The aim of the harmonization project is to improve the quality and usability of the data content of Normet’s data system and thereby facilitate work and enhance productivity.

    “A stimulus for the project was that there were defects in our data classification, and the user guidance also needed unification. Wrong data had been stored in wrong places and the result was that the daily use of the system was difficult. We wanted to clean up the whole system to be able to get the right information right when it is needed. We chose Solteq as our partner because we knew how deep expertise and wide experience they have in data management,” says Normet’s Masterdata Manager Mikko Muona.

    In the project, Normet’s data items are categorized in a logical order, and clear rules and standards are created for future data classification. When the project is completed, there will be no duplicate data and the data will always be up-do-date and in a uniform format, which will improve the usability of the system significantly.

    ”High-quality data content of information systems is the cornerstone of a company. It provides a solid basis for decision making and everyday routines. High-quality data also makes it easy to use the system and retrieve data, which facilitates people’s work and enhances the company’s operations”, Mikko Muona continues.
