Cleaning up Maximo’s Item Master
Ontracks has created a process for cleaning up Maximo’s Item Master by using another IBM tool: SPSS.
The solution is designed to extract the Items’ relevant terms (e.g. colour, size, part number) using SPSS’ Text Analytics capabilities, then matching them across themselves to provide a list of suggested duplicates based on identical matching terms, significantly reducing the amount of data that the analyst needs to verify.
Your organization can customize the provided out-of-the-box dictionaries provided by SPSS to build their own and result in even better extraction results of your data.
