Lihir Gold has recently been acquired by Newcrest Mining. This data is held on a Mincom Ellipse Materials Management System and needs to be amalgamated with the existing Newcrest data held on SAP. Similar to services provided to other mining organisations the catalogue data records need to be checked for duplications and then standardised for names, description formats and encoding prior to their application to SAP Materials Master. One aspect that this project will also undertake is to standardise the Attribute Sets or Identification Guides for like items with the same item name within the existing Newcrest item data file. This will ensure like items are structured consistently in their descriptive content making it is easier for system user to readily identify the items required.
