Program Product Installations across multiple LPARs

I would like to get some feedback from installations on how they handle product installs across multiple LPARs that are not participating in shared DASD full sysplex environments. In our shop, this means a half-dozen or so people coming in our change window and running installation and IVP jobs for program products. I was wondering if anyone was using any commercially available products that would handle the distribution and setup required for installation? (aside from zOSSMF) We are thinking of writing ISPF dialog that would generate jobs to distribute and install product libraries and then with automation and CA7 handle the change window tasks.
