Manufacturers must ensure products are safe and compliant with complex, varied environmental regulations like RoHS and REACH by assessing each component against a constantly growing list of regulated substances so they can be properly disclosed. This currently requires thousands of emails across the supply chain; it is still a manual, time-consuming process. Delays can result in loss of revenue and risk proper compliance.
SAP Product Stewardship Network (PSN) is an online collaboration community for product manufacturers and their supply chains to efficiently collect and manage product sustainability data. Companies of all sizes, whether they use SAP or not, can leverage this network to save time and cost.
“Connecting to our ecosystem in the cloud will reduce costs and increase productivity for our employees and supply chain partners,” said Torger Trenner, environmental manager, Weidmüller Group. “We create more than 40,000 distinct products and components for industrial connectivity and have a business presence in over 80 countries. We constantly get requests from customers for detailed product information. Our business relationships depend on getting the answer quickly and correctly. That’s why we decided to help SAP’s development of the product stewardship network. It will enable everyone in the supply chain to enter and maintain their own information. This will help us — and all participating companies worldwide — amass and provide the information needed much faster and more efficiently.”
