GreenSoft Technology Inc., a company that provides environmental compliance content management tools and services for the electronics industry, has released a white paper titled “Risk Management of RoHS/REACH SVHC: Green Compliance for Electronics OEMs.”
The paper offers ideas on how to address constantly changing green compliance regulations and directives such as RoHS, REACH SVHC for electronics OEMs. The paper details how risk is best reduced by collecting, whenever possible, full material declaration data, and by applying a scalable software solution that works for one person or in a companywide implementation.
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.
