Currently SoftNis’s has more than 4,0000, unique Noun modifier combination in the dictionary. The Noun modifier dictionary is a two-tiered classification schema with consistent naming convention. Each Schema consists of Noun/Class and Modifier/Sub-Class with associated characteristics that describes the general part attributes.
Each noun modifier is having minimum of 8 attributes and maximum of 27 attributes with attribute type, descriptions, sample values, Unit of Modifiers and attribute priority. As per each client requirement, the Noun-Modifier Dictionary can be modified and/or rearranged as needed.
Several unit of measure standards were considered in establishing the standard UOM list. The standard UOM list is developed with the consideration of following UOM standards in the industry. They are,
The abbreviations are the standard short form representation of the Noun, Modifier, attribute name and values. The abbreviated names are used to generate the short description with the intention of accommodation of more values.Example: BEARING - BRG, CLAMP - CLMP
Complete specification of material is captured as per the schema from the manufacturer website or catalog.
Long Descriptions are generated with the combination of Noun, Modifier, and Specification Name Value Pairs. Long Description are non-abbreviated and Length of the descriptions vary depending on the specification values.
[Noun], [Modifier];[Attribute 1 Name] [Attribute 1 value]:[Attribute 2 Name] [Attribute 2 value]:[Attribute 3 Name] [Attribute 3 value]:
Short Descriptions are generated with the combination of Noun, Modifier, and Specification Values. The specification values are the priority values of the product. The short description is a 40-character in length generated using the Abbreviated form of noun, modifier and specification values.

The UNSPSC is a global reference taxonomy or classification framework for all products and services. The UNSPSC is a hierarchical classification, having four levels Segment, Family, Class, Commodity. Each level contains a two-character numerical value and a textual description.UNSPSC classification for Pressure Gauge.
|41000000 - Laboratory and Measuring and Observing and Testing Equipment||41110000 - Measuring and observing and testing instruments||41112400 - Pressure measuring and control instruments||41112412 - Pressure gauge|
Product Data Deduplication is a process of identifying and removing the redundant items. The Duplicate Items are identified based on same manufacturer and part numbers, or may be different manufacturer but same functionality. This duplicate identification process will be processed after completion of the complete Material Master Standardization process.
