What are Material Clusters?
Similar materials or modules can be identified using analytical methods and compiled in so-called material clusters (material groups). This can be extremely helpful, e.g. with the substitution of materials. Furthermore, by introducing material clusters, pricing developments can also be made visible for similar parts. In the case of missing price histories, savings can be calculated with clusters in the sense of a MCV / MPV.
