One of the biggest challenges that manufacturers run into when addressing product compliance requirements is having the ability to efficiently collect and process supplier declarations. Read on to discover how Teamcenter can help.
Successful manufacturers realize the benefits of creating sustainable and compliant products. Most companies understand that compliance to environmental and social regulations like REACH, RoHS and Conflict Minerals will help to achieve green brand recognition in the global markets. However, one important area around addressing compliance that manufacturers find especially challenging is supplier declaration processing. The process of requesting, gathering and validating supplier declarations can be tedious and error prone without the help of a proven, automated solution.
