›DAD‹ objectives and principles
The ›DAD‹ data-update-service provides as a link between manufacturer/supplier
and dealer/food service consultant the close in-time gathering, preparing, updating
and distribution oftechnical planning data as well as grafic-, price- and product-
information in a standardised format.
The ›DAD‹ data-update-service pursues the following principles:
The update-service is provided continously every quarter by the distribution
of 4 ›DAD‹ DVDs per year to every ›DAD‹ user as well as by a ›DAD‹ FTP-Server,
which alllows updating via internet. Hereby a regular and in-time data-updating
is guaranteed. The agreement for ›DAD‹ data-usage is concluded for a minimum
period of one year. Single updates are not possible.
The integraion of the data and the finalising of one standardised format is carried
out by the ›DAD‹ data-update-service. Because of lack of information concerning
e.g.technical data or because of delays in receiving the information a difference
between the validity dates of the pricelists and the publication date in DAD are
possible. An in-time update ist targeted and mostly this can be attained. By the
FTP-update intermediate update independent from the ›DAD‹ DVD can be obtained
directly after the data has been finalised at SWS.
3. ›DAD‹ Data-topicality
By regular contacts with DAD-manufacturers and ›DAD‹ users an in-time knowledge
about product-changes and -developements can be assured. But there are no
sanction-mechanisms in order to obligate manufacturers to keep the data up-to-date
in time. This means that similar to print media all technical and price information is
valid subject to changes and errors. The correctness and validity of the data cannot
4. Personal responsibility
Every ›DAD‹ user has the possibility, to use the ›DAD‹ Data-Installation completely
or partially or to keep outdated data for his own purposes. Hence the ›DAD‹ has no
automatism to assure by an obligatory update the topicality of the database.
5. Agreement for usage of ›DAD‹ data
