What did it take for item management in disjointed global ERP systems to become the “best process” at Metso Corporation, successfully providing current item data to global users in a standard format?
Olli-Pekka Tuikkala has worked at Valmet/Metso for more than 25 years, initially in designing duties and subsequently in various procurement and logistics capacities before becoming Senior Service Manager for global Master Data management and standardisation. He also leads Engineering Services, the second largest procurement team at Valmet, as a “work-related hobby”.
Valmet also features prominently in his leisure time. As an active member of his local live music association, he has often appeared with his guitar to sing at company and staff events.
