Purchasing and Procurement
and Procurement people need information “demand data” to
start the planning. Do we build or Buy? They also need
product information to add items to stock, produce purchase
orders, verify and process receipts. These people rely on
demand from Sales and Marketing as well as Logistics
functions. They also need all the information contained in
the Standard Item Record (SIR) so they can provide the
information to the various functional areas that need it.

practices for improvements.
solving problems who need to know what standards and
best practices apply.
