Q Point Green Data Exchange (GDX) integrated with Arena automates and simplifies product compliance with regulations. GDX provides you a large repository of existing compliance information. In addition, it helps you connect directly with your suppliers to obtain real-time compliance information. GDX automates the full spectrum of the process. It identifies the appropriate contact at suppliers, allowing them to respond with information in a consistent, ready-to-use format. And it provides the tools to analyze data in real time and as often as your product changes. GDX can be configured to automatically provide compliance status and evidence to supplier parts in Arena.
How it Works
In Arena, create supplier parts with supplier name and number, as well as compliance requirements (e.g., REACH, RoHS, Conflict Minerals, and Full Material Disclosures). Your supplier parts will be automatically synchronized with GDX. GDX not only provides access to existing compliance data, it provides a comprehensive method to request compliance data from your suppliers when needed. With Arena and GDX, you have better compliance visibility around your entire product. In Arena, select a BOM, export it, and then import it into GDX to view compliance status. Drill down to analyze details. Search and filter parts in GDX to conduct analysis or identify parts requiring compliance information. View detailed information on any supplier part. In GDX, easily send an information request to a supplier for compliance information and/or supporting documentation. Utilize the GDX management dashboard to track the status of open requests. Finally, generate a product-level certificate of compliance (CoC) to share with a customer and record in Arena PLM.
