At the same time the usage of these techniques involves the thorough understanding and proper implementation of sophisticated methods which demand well coordinated work of the company staff, suppliers and retailers. Any glitches occurred in the work of any sections of the chain can lead to the failure of the whole system.
Worldwide implementation The most important success factor for the project was the capability of Simatic IT Interspec to simultaneously enable benefits at both an operational and strategic level.
At a single site implementation level it provides users with a single point of reference, saving them time and avoiding data having to be entered twice with the associated risk of errors being made.
This made Simatic IT Interspec very attractive to users who run the day to day operations of operating companies. At the same time, by linking site implementations using common structures and language, data could be collated and aggregated to get the bigger picture, for example to support global procurement.
It was this strategic capability, that attracted senior management attention and support. Both elements were necessary to deliver a project of this nature.

Through this now operational network, common formats are defined and updated from a single point passed across the network, and international specifications exchanged. Its implementation has been supported by continuous improvements of the Simatic IT Interspec software over a two year period which has involved three major releases of the software and the development of a web-enabled version.
Printed in Germany Europe helpline: As a second and more functional challenge, there is the human and cultural aspect of formulating agreements about common structures and terms in the glossary to develop this common language across a business the size of Unilever.
