Integrated Product Support for Defense (IPSD) is a content management system for armed forces to import and maintain the master data of complex military systems such as aeroplanes, helicopters, tanks and ships. This data is delivered by the systems manufacturer to enable its customers (the armed forces) to maintain their systems during the in-service phase. For this, a large number of master data entities must be created and maintained in the customer’s ERP system.
The focus of IPSD is to import, validate and review spare parts master data according to the specification ASD S2000M and to generate change requests in SAP Master Data Governance (MDG) in order to create or update product / material master records in SAP ERP or SAP S/4HANA. This ensures a high level of data quality with only a minimal level of manual effort.
