Your job

The One IHC programme develops and implements uniform processes, enterprise-wide data models and state-of-the-art software systems within Royal IHC. As part of this, IHC is converting many legacy data from our old software systems to our new landscape, consisting of IHC’s core software systems (ERP, PDM, CAD, Planning). For this IHC employs an Extract/ Transform/ Load toolkit of Oracle, using both EDQ and EDQP. This combination ensures that the best possible quality of data is migrated to the new systems and ensures that multiple business units can be migrated in parallel.

EDQ is used to retrieve data from all legacy systems, check and/or convert the data and create load files for the new systems. EDQP is used to recognize (unstructured) part classification data (classes, features, etc). For this, it uses lenses which need to be created and trained to recognize certain texts (or combinations of texts) as classes or features. These classes and features are defined by class owners and subsequently created in the new systems by CDM (Corporate Data Management). The creation of lenses is mainly done with XML imports. The training of lenses is done with sample data of parts from the legacy system. This sample data is retrieved using EDQ. The resulting parts and parts information are further complemented by a cleansing team. This cleansing team also has a reviewing role for lenses.

At IHC the migration is quite complex: we come from a landscape of more than 10 different ERP systems, various PDM systems, multiple CAD systems along with a large variety of technical products. And we arrive at one ERP system, one PDM system and a much smaller number of CAD systems. As a consequence, the data migration (of part data, customer data, supplier data, resource data, transactional data etc) is a big undertaking, especially where engineering data is concerned. In the future, EDQ / EDQP will also be used for auditing and maintaining data quality. We need our new Product Owner to drive the further development of the EDQ / EDQP-platform, coordinate the development of data lenses used to properly treat existing legacy data, and prepare for the use of this ETL toolkit for data quality purposes.

You will work within the One IHC configuration team. We follow an Agile way of working. The scrum team consists of the Product Owner, engineering experts, data migration experts, data migration managers and the scrum master. As the Product Owner EDQ/EDQP, you liaise with the other Product Owners that are an expert on the various business processes. You report to One IHC’s Data Migration Manager.  

As Product Owner EDQ / EDQP you are responsible for the following: 

  • maintain and detail the backlog for gradually improving and expanding EDQ / EDQP at IHC
  • liaise with other Product Owners to secure fit between the EDQ / EDQP-platform and the software configuration of IHC’s core ICT systems (ERP, CAD, PDM, Planning)
  • drive the realisation of all the backlog items together with the scrum master
  • functionally test the scrum results to make sure that the ETL-toolkit performs correctly and efficiently
  • transfer EDQ / EDQP knowledge to the roll-out teams that use the toolkit to do actual migration
  • train the builders of part class lenses
  • coordinate the lens building process
  • validate the quality of the lens builders with the help of EDQ / EDQP
  • report progress on backlog completion, including lens completion.
