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 high volumes of legacy data from our old software systems to our new digital landscape. This comprises IHC’s core software systems (ERP, PDM, CAD and Planning). The migration project is complex. We come from a situation of more than 10 different ERP systems, various PDM and CAD packages, as well as a variety of technical products. Our aim is to realise a single ERP and PDM system, along with a smaller number of CAD applications. Intrinsically, the data migration process is a significant undertaking, especially where engineering data is concerned. To strengthen our team, we are looking for a Parts Data Specialist. You will support us by interpreting and optimising the information on legacy parts to a level which meets the requirements of our newly defined standards.

In this role, your main responsibility will be to investigate (legacy) data sources for parts and convert it to the new data model.

  • converting, cleansing and verifying parts data into the new information model
  • importing/migrating the clean parts data to the new systems (ERP & PDM)
  • reporting progress to the team leader.

Your profile

To be eligible for the position of Parts Data Specialist, you must have: 

  • higher vocational education (bachelor) or/and an academic higher education (master)

  • desire to learn to operate new software solutions, motivated, proactive and disciplined attitude, with an eye for detail, and a passion for outstanding results and high-quality standards
  • flexible attitude towards working hours around key data migration deadlines
  • demonstrable skills in data manipulation and extraction techniques, for example, utilising SQL or other languages for scripting
  • preferably experience in a comparable position (especially with regards to parts data processing, cleansing, and conversion)
  • preferably experience with ETL tools, ERP and/or PDM solutions and/or with large datasets
  • good communication skills in English both verbal and written
