Green product design easy using MRPRO


San Jose, CA, Dec 15, ‘08- Papros Inc.’s leading solution for green product design MRPRO(TM) has been updated for complete footprint data exchange for parts/products/articles and/or raw materials. Data exchange is enabled seamlessly either in spreadsheet or XML formats per the latest industry standards. Complete footprint exchange includes all desired compositions at the desired levels (article, subproduct or component or raw material level) and comprises other characteristics such as power usage during operation, or energy used in manufacture or any other parameter of the user’s choice as identified by a unique code. The data collected by a user can then be optionally mined efficiently by MRPRO for various computations and the results are available for subsequent communications in similar formats.

Its rapid scrubbing of substances in products versus the intermediate list of (soon the final list, when it is released) REACH Pre-Registration substances will enable companies to rapidly identify substances which have been pre-registered. In addition, the software can also scrub for threshold exceedances of substances in lists such as the SIN list as well as the list of potential substances of very high concern (SVHCs). Moreover, the program can seamlessly combine concentrations of substances represented by CAS numbers as well those represented by EC numbers in the same procedure by uniquely identifying them in the program as well as for visual checks..

MRPRO’s BOM scrubbing capabilities are offered free for download in a limited version. Heavy duty users needing more advanced capabilities and ability to handle larger BOMs (free limited version has lower limits) can, if they desire, buy an upgrade. The limited version can also do rollups of parts compositions in a BOM. The download site is:

The free BOM scrub capability enables companies to closely protect their Intellectual Property by keeping their BOMs in-house. In addition to complete control of IP, market competitiveness in procurement is also greatly enhanced because the companies can now be in control of supplier interactions in terms of pricing, availability and strategic sourcing for parts. Moreover, as the supply chain greens, companies can thus build on their knowledge base and be green leaders rather than following the herd.

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.

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-101A), IPC, SAE and F2725.
