The #1 CAMDS & IMDS Software Solution

Convert and anonymize your data sheets from IMDS to CAMDS in a highly automatized process.

Automate your ELV Processes globally


Our Solution


With iPoint’s CAMDS & IMDS software solution, you can convert and anonymize data sheets from IMDS to CAMDS in a highly automatized process – without having to reveal business-sensitive information about your supply chain, suppliers, etc. iPoint’s solution subsequently lets you send the created data sheet to CAMDS and the customer in CAMDS automatedly.


95.5 % automatic conversion


Based on the feedback from our customers, our IMDS-CAMDS converter manages to convert about 95.5% of the IMDS Material Data Sheets (MDS) without any manual interaction. For the few remaining MDS only small manual changes were required to complete the conversion.


Improve efficiency and quality through automatization

Speed up your CAMDS process by using existing IMDS data without having to wait for CAMDS data from your supplier

Reduce efforts for CAMDS datasheet creation – Based on the feedback of our customers, the efforts for creating CAMDS datasheets with iPoint’s solution are less than 20% of manual data entry processes

Build on existing data and processes


Minimize training effort due to similarly designed IMDS and CAMDS user interfaces in the iPCA module

Benefit from the know-how of the world’s number one provider of IMDS Inhouse systems

Conceal business relationships and business-sensitive supply chain data when using supplier data from IMDS in CAMDS

What is the China Automotive Material Data System (CAMDS)?


In late 2015, Chinese authorities issued a specification detailing the information automotive OEMs are required to deliver for a type approval. This means that OEMs now not only have to collect information on materials for the International Material Data System (IMDS), but also for the China Automotive Material Data System (CAMDS), a product data management platform developed by CATARC (China Automotive Technology & Research Center) and several Chinese OEMS.


In addition to IMDS data, every automotive manufacturing company also has to provide CAMDS data to the customers and authorities. However, the supplier data are not available, and the process has to be put in motion by the entire supply chain, from the bottom to the top. When IMDS was introduced, the learning curve of this process extended over a period of five years.


Although the learning curve is likely to be shorter in the case of CAMDS, since all the relevant data and processes are already in place due to IMDS-related efforts, companies are dealing with a duplication of efforts, since CAMDS-convenient supplier data are not available at short notice. As long as a company doesn’t have supplier data in CAMDS, these data can only be transferred manually from IMDS into CAMDS. This is a very cumbersome and error-prone process if not implemented by experienced experts.
