Weilrod, 20.05.2014 - It is mandatory for automotive manufacturers the world over to comply with the statutory requirements of the End-of-Life Vehicles Directive 2000/53/EG and to verifiably document all the materials that the vehicles consist of. This entails meticulous recording and entry of often more than 10,000 components used per model.
The internet based International Material Data System (IMDS), an electronic database system developed by HP enables automotive manufacturers (OEMs) and their suppliers to comply with the statutory requirements by archiving and managing materials used in vehicles in a database. Material data can be entered in the system easily, presented in a transparent manner and safely forwarded across the length and breadth of the supplier chain. Use of the IMDS in the automotive sector is increasingly gaining currency throughout the world. Proper use of the IMDS, however, calls for sound knowledge of material data entry and of prevailing laws and directives.

In future, seminars will also be held at other locations in Brazil. imds professional is the first and only authorised training partner of HP in Brazil.
