Smart Materials/Smart Reference Data Version

To improve the performance of business intelligence reports, some of the reports use separate database tables. To ensure that the reports use current data, synchronization jobs must be run on the database to synchronize the database tables. Synchronization jobs must be created and run for the following reports:

  • Adherence to Delivery Dates (-> uses Expediting data)

  • Agreement Supplement Comparison

  • Agreements and Line Items

  • Commodity Codes (Catalog Search)

  • Expediting

  • Idents (Full Listing)

  • Inventory List

  • MRRs per Day

  • On-Time Delivery

  • Procurement Progress

  • Procurement Status

  • Purchase Order Closeout Status

  • Shipment Tracking
