Optimizing the Greenback and the Green Environment
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) October 29, 2009
Green leader Papros Inc. yesterday announced a new version of MRPRO for Windows 7, the new operating system from Microsoft Corporation. Immediately upon release, it was greeted with strong enthusiasm from users. As a typical example of the responses, Mr. Ron Carter, Director of Quality at Adaptec Corporation in Milpitas, California had this to say "MRPRO is the top product to buy now. I am able to meet the entire gamut of tasks needed for my electronics product eco-compliance: BOM control, compliance lists management, parts master lists and APLs, vendor master lists and AVLs, supplier interactions and qualification, downstream reporting, obsolescence management, lean sigma analysis, alternate scenario evaluations, record keeping trails for potential audits and so many more like these. I am able to do this robustly, easily and in a cost-effective manner. This last part is important in the current economic situation, as most companies would agree".
MRPRO supports Design for the Environment by easily exchanging product footprint, obsolescence information and due diligence communications in the realm of Montebello Agreement, REACH, RoHS, RoHS-like (China, Korea), JMOSS, WEEE, EuP, AB 32, Green Chemistry Initiative, Extended Producer Responsibility and other emerging regulations. MRPRO enables compliance by full support for data conforming to EIA, JEDEC, JIG (supports the latest JIG), IPC, SAE and F2725 and for individual company specification based survey sheets (such as from OEMs).
MRPRO offers the spreadsheet interface for product footprints in addition to industry and W3C compliant XML formats for the data. By easily exchanging data on the web or the desktop, the entire web is the database for MRPRO and the spreadsheet is the interface.
In addition, Papros Inc. offers free downloads of a new and updated AJAX viewer for multi-part survey sheets for compliance information, product safety sheets and other safe use information. The required communication of safe use data to downstream users necessary for REACH compliance will need a large and concerted outreach effort by companies. The free AJAX viewer, as it offers direct web-based links from the product material declarations to the product safety datasheets and other safe use information will play a big role in helping companies in their outreach and information dissemination efforts, as deployment costs will be minimal and carbon footprints for most of of the energy used in the data usage/viewing is shifted to the user of data. Thus a company can put information on its website, and if access to view all this data is restricted to downloads or viewing using the AJAX viewer, there will be minimal carbon footprint for the company irrespective of the number of authorized users/viewers. This helps the company ramp up its communications outreach while keeping costs minimal.
