MRPRO offers data center carbon footprints for network designers


San Jose, CA, November 17, ‘07 / /- Network designers can now easily optimize networks for the least carbon footprints by being able to evaluate different configurations of devices, switches and other peripherals, and estimating the combined carbon footprint for each configuration. This is a direct application of the many features of MRPRO that had been announced over the last few months; most notably in a press release dated the September 7. In it, Papros Inc. had discussed the tracking of the complete environmental footprint of any product. This includes energy usage, greenhouse gases produced, and multimedia waste quantification during the phase of production, during normal usage of the product and in the ultimate disposition of the product at its end-of-life. By easily aggregating the carbon footprints of individual devices, switches and peripherals using the program, be they in a normal mode of operation, standby mode or in off position, network designers are able to accurately evaluate the carbon footprint. This will enable network designers to optimally configure their networks for the least carbon footprint. This is consistent with MRPRO’s role in supporting Design for the Environment in the realm of RoHS, RoHS-like, REACH, EuP and other emerging regulations.

Papros Inc.’s products offer robust performance, scalability and efficiency for tracking green chemistry in products. Papros Inc.’s flagship product for RoHS and REACH compliance tracking is MRPRO. A very easy-to-use program, MRPRO prepares a Product Material Content Report in conformance with WEEE, RoHS (EU, China, California etc.), EIA, IPC, JIG, JGPSSI and JEDEC and other similar evolving standards. MRPRO incorporates a full array of functions including aggregation, maximum rollups, use tracking, BOM scrubs, read-ins from test data or one hundred percent disclosures, direct importation and write-outs of hundreds of product/part files in IPC 1752-1 and 1752-2 formats in a single batch and many other useful functions. MRPRO can be deployed across the corporate intranet and internet for information access across the enterprise and the entire supply chain using the latest AJAX enabled web client that optimizes data transfer and increases throughput robustness. It shows the lists of region/ issue specific compliance criteria and the product’s/part’s status per the criteria. It also shows End Of Life (EOL) timeline, disposal method at EOL and any other comments by the due diligent authorized issuer/maintainer of the data. A separate form also opens up IPC 1752 xml data over the web and displays maximum compositions for all JIG substance categories. Another form can access all due diligence communications. It is designed to work for all commonly used web browsers. The latest features allow easy quantification of listed substances in products or mixtures, aggregation of shipped quantities and tracking of all information related to the substances and all mixtures of substances sold or shipped as parts or products, or if needed, for calculation of amounts of manufacture, process or other use. Standards based data queries and data integration of data from the supply chain enable seamless management of product data for companies subject to EU REACH, or for traditional US applications such as Form R calculations, or other various State or Local compliance needs.

MRPRO’s report generator, the optional web client and other accessories provide a complete environment for Product Environmental Lifecycle Management for companies of all sizes, large, medium or small. By enabling reports to be generated at key specified points, while enabling the deployment of the results across the internet or corporate intranet, and supporting efficient access to the data, MRPRO is thus a strong and sufficient platform for compliance management.

The scalability of MRPRO ensures that MRPRO can be deployed across enterprises of all sizes and everywhere in the enterprise. Its user interface is easy to use and understand. Additionally, MRPRO can work efficiently with supply chain management data to easily interface with existing processes at enterprises and for multi-enterprise integration. Its abilities to fit in and be necessary at different levels and places in the supply chain enable it to be powerful in use as a tool for eco-compliance with regulatory requirements.
