IHS, SAP expand MRO offering

Software deal targets maintenance, repair and operations and supply chain management.

IHS has obtained SAP certification for its Struxure 5 offering which is now ‘seamlessly’ integrated with SAP’s enterprise asset management (EAM) solution. Customers can now access maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) item and classification data from their SAP ERP and supply chain management applications.

Struxure 5

Struxure 5’s catalog management software leverages IHS’ Standard Modifier Dictionary (SMD), a widely used cataloging methodology for pipes, valves, bearings and other plant equipment. Struxure 5 communicates with SAP via standard BAPI programming interfaces and/or iDOCs.

Go To Market

SAP North America has signed a ‘Go To Market’ deal with IHS covering marketing, communications and training. IHS was also recently appointed to serve on the EU’s eCl@ss steering committee and to act as its US representative. eCl@ss is an international standard for supply chain classification.
