IMDS ADVANCED INTERFACE - PRICING
The IMDS-AI service fees are structured into different upload levels. Your company can select the level which best fits to the amount of MDSs that you think will be uploaded in the coming year. If you wish assistance in determining your level, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and they can report to you the number of modules you have created in the last time period. The level f package in the table below is only available as an add-on to a level a-e package. It only includes up to 999 additional modules to an existing contract of level a-e.
The fees are based on the number of successfully uploaded MDSs or modules to the IMDS. MDSs and/or module uploads leading to an error message are not counted for this purpose. For each newly created MDS or module and the creation of a new version of an already existing MDS or module, the counter of available modules (set by the contract value) is decremented by one. Furthermore, changes in Chapter 1 "Ingredients" in existing MDSs/modules are counted. However, the deletion and any status change (release, accept, reject, ...) for existing MDSs/modules as well as the entire request processing are free of charge.
The amount of downloaded data from the IMDS is not relevant for pricing.
IMDS-AI fee structure
A small number of HPE Level 2 consulting hours is included in the fee structure. This includes answering questions on the documentation, resetting IDs, generating specific files, and various other inquiries to the Level 2 contact.
The following examples provide further explanation as to how the IMDS-AI licensing works.
Over the past years, IMDS Company X had annual upload volumes between 3,150 and 3,870 modules. The IMDS Company X estimates that during the next contract year, their need will be slightly more and buys one package from fee level "d" with 2,000 - 4,999 modules. IMDS Company X pays EUR 8,400 for the contract duration from June 15th, 2015 to June 14th, 2016. Until June 14th, 2016 he uploads 4,380 modules. The remaining 619 modules available expire at midnight June 14, 2016 (CET).
Over the past years, IMDS Company Y had annual upload volumes between 4,120 and 4,950 modules. IMDS Company Y estimates that during the next contract year, they will have a decreasing requirement and buys one package from fee level "D" with 2,000 - 4,999 modules. IMDS Company Y pays EUR 8,400 for the contract duration from June 15th, 2015 to June 14th, 2016. By February 15th, 2016 he uploads 4,760 modules, and, contrary to the first estimation, he's now expecting an annual upload volume of more than 6,000 modules. Therefore he buys an additional package from fee level "E" with up to 1,999 modules for EUR 5,250. Now the upper limit is 6,998 modules. At the end of the contract year, IMDS Company Y has uploaded 6,720 modules. The remaining 278 modules available expire at midnight June 14, 2016 (CET)
