International Material Data System: Advanced + Upgrade (IMDS2)
Course code: IMDS2
The IMDS (International Material Data System) is the automobile industry’s material data system. Initially, it was a joint development of Audi, BMW, Daimler, EDS (after acquisition in 2008 part of HP, now DXC Technology), Ford, Opel, Porsche, VW and Volvo. Further manufacturers have since joined the community and IMDS has become a global standard used by almost all the global OEMs. Talks are being held with additional manufacturers regarding their participation in IMDS.
In the IMDS, all materials present in finished automobile manufacturing are collected, maintained, analysed and archived. IMDS facilitates meeting the obligations placed on automobile manufacturers, and thus on their suppliers, by national and international standards, laws and regulations.
The concept implemented in IMDS uses Internet technologies that allow automotive manufacturers and their suppliers to standardize the process of exchange of information and its effective collection worldwide.
The course is designed for advanced IMDS users. It is used to expand knowledge from the IMDS 1 course.
The content of the training (IMDS2) is to familiarize you with the advanced features in IMDS version 12.0. Increase the efficiency of working with IMDS, REACH.
