Supplier Materials Compliance Engineer ()
Supplier Materials Compliance Engineer enables suppliers to create and submit material declarations. It comes with a simple web user interface for suppliers to view their assigned material declaration requests, review the customer’s reporting deadlines, create declarations, and upload completed material declarations to be reviewed by users of Materials Compliance Manager.
A critical aspect of determining product compliance is gathering material declarations from the supply chain for outsourced parts in products. Materials Compliance Manager provides tools to allow compliance engineers to 1) determine which outsourced parts are unreported, 2) generate Material Declaration Requests for these parts, and 3) import material declarations once suppliers provide them.
Supplier Materials Compliance Engineer facilitates the data collection process by providing a web site for suppliers to:
- Log in and view material declaration requests
- Download parts in an industry-standard data collection format such as IPC-1752, JAMP AIS, JAMA/JAPIA, or Compliance Connect
- Interactively create IPC-1752A declarations using an on-line editor
- Upload completed material declarations
As a standalone web application, Supplier Materials Compliance Engineer can be installed on a separate application server outside the firewall. It communicates with Materials Compliance Manager through a secure web service interface. It can be configured to automate the import of material declarations once they are uploaded, and also show suppliers whether their material declarations have successfully imported, and have been accepted or rejected by the compliance engineers. Supplier Materials Compliance Engineer also includes the Compliance Connect spreadsheet, which is an industry standard tool for data collection and certification of material composition of supplier parts.
