Mr. David Liphshitz worked at Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) from mid-2004 to early-2006 in the capacity of a leading SAP PP Consultant. The project, a ‘Big Bang’ very large and complex SAP project, was initiated to replace an array of legacy systems with SAP. This project incorporated different business lines and different types of manufacturing sites. David led the PP module implementation and the related integration issues and also did a wonderful job coming up with original solutions to the issues at hand. Additionally, I would like to indicate that the go-live phase of the PP module, at all manufacturing sites, was smooth. From early-2006 to end-2006 David worked as PM/MRO consultant on the maintenance plants SAP implementation. David made a significant contribution to this project. I am happy to highly recommend David without any reservation.
