GreenData Manager with Component Disclosure Module (GDM w/ CDM)
A comprehensive solution to help Component Manufacturers manage their materials database and generate FMD data
Component manufacturers face a unique challenge in dealing with the substance data of materials in order to provide compliance declarations to customers.
As regulations such as EU RoHS, EU REACH (including the new EU REACH SVHC SCIP database), California Proposition 65, EU POPs, and others get changed and updated, your compliance team must continuously update and maintain your materials database. And when customers come back with repeat requests for updated compliance declaration reports, the process of providing customers with data can seem unending.
Establishing a Full Material Declaration (FMD) database is the best practice for component manufacturers to reduce the burden of providing updated compliance declarations to customers when regulations are changed.
Instead of providing individual compliance declarations for each package or component, give your customers FMD data and eliminate the need to re-issue compliance declarations every time a regulation is updated.
But how do you organize the substance make-up data that you have collected from your materials suppliers into an easily managed FMD database? How do you maintain the database to deal with updates and changes? How do you keep up with the constantly changing regulations? And how do you generate the package or component data to provide to customers?
GreenData Manager with Component Disclosure Module (GDM w/ CDM) software can enable you to meet your data management goals while reducing your manual burden.
GDM w/ CDM Materials Database Features
GreenData Manager with Component Disclosure Module (GDM w/ CDM) software allows you to establish your materials database with substance make-up data through bulk imports of package codes or component part number files.
Once imported, Full Material Declaration (FMD) data on each package code or component part number can be generated and exported to Excel, IPC-1752A XML, and IEC 62474 XML formats.
GDM w/ CDM features include:
- Establish a company-wide material database with substance makeup data, and track the changes on every material. Propagate the changes to final FMD data on package codes or component part numbers.
- Evaluation of the compliance status of your materials for 24 built-in regulations including EU RoHS, EU REACH SVHC/Annex-17/Annex-14, California Proposition 65, EU POPs, and China RoHS.
- Data entry accuracy checks by examining the deviation of aggregation of substance weight versus material weight.
- Accessibility by multiple users that share the same material database with real-time changes and edits.
- Ability to customize the Excel template export files with your company logo, address and other information.
- Available for GreenData Manager (GDM) Workgroup and Desktop Editions.
Intelligent Change Management System
With GreenData Manager with Component Disclosure Module (GDM w/ CDM) software, dealing with changes to substance data or materials becomes as easy as clicking a button.
The GDM w/ CDM intelligent change management system detects when the substance make-up file of a material changes, and a single click of a button will distribute that updated data throughout the database. You can then export FMD data files for only the components or packages that use the changed material, instead of having to re-export the entire database and manually determine which files contain the changes.
Automate the Fulfillment of Customer Requests
Additionally, GreenData Manager with Component Disclosure Module (GDM w/ CDM) software allows manufacturers to eliminate the process of fulfilling customer requests for compliance declarations completely.
FMD files exported from GDM w/ CDM software can be uploaded to your website to create a searchable online database for customers. When regulations change or customers need new information, they can simply visit your website and obtain the necessary information themselves, preventing your team from getting fatigued by repeat customer requests for data.
Because of the intelligent change management system in GDM w/ CDM, when materials are changed, your website developers will only need to upload files for packages or components affected by the changes instead of having to update the entire FMD database.
