The IMDS is an external database maintained by Hewlett-Packard in which materials or parts used in vehicle manufacture are archived and managed. The IMDS is a joint development by EDS (now part of Hewlett-Packard) and Audi, BMW, Daimler, Ford, Opel, Porsche, VW and Volvo. Other car manufacturers have since joined the group.
