Improve the SAP material master data creation process

Material master, a critical piece of master data, is often created by multiple people in an organization in an ad-hoc manner. The manual process involves more than 25 different screens, consumes a significant amount of time, often suffers from poor coordination, and can introduce significant errors in data that can lead to failed orders or shipments.
