YASH Technologies of East Moline Ill. has launched inREACH, an on-demand web-based tool for managing REACH compliance. YASH created the software as a means to simplify the complex REACH legislation into a step-by-step process.
inREACH integrates six core modules for REACH compliance:
Master data with product (substance) and supplier/customer management
Supply chain communication
SIEF & consortium management
YASH EVP, Kevin Jansen, notes that the company launched inREACH in the software-as-a-service (SAAS) model to offer customers an alternative to the implementation and operational costs of owning a REACH tool.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
