VERSION 7.0P (06/04/2009)
Avoid Publishing of MDSs
A new User profile "User (publish)" is introduced so that the Client Manager can grant publishing rights to a limited amount of users in the company. This implies that some existing user profiles will not be allowed anymore to publish MDSs. Furthermore, the client manager needs to define which type of MDSs (component, semi-component, material) may be published by which OrgID inside his company.
Please note: The administration is NOT possible in the IMDS-a2 but in the IMDS Online application.
In IMDS, only the data of chemicals which are present in the final product should be entered. Therefore, process chemicals used during the manufacturing process are not to be entered and the system should prevent the user from adding those chemicals. There will be a new basic substance group "Process chemicals".
When a Semi-Component is added on the same level with a Component this would violate IMDS Recommendation 001 (in one structural level only the same kind of elements may be used). In order to avoid this, a new Component node for this Semi-Component will automatically be inserted.
The system will guide the user to replacements for deactivated or hidden substances after copying a material which contains this kind of substances. When replacement substances are available for deactivated or hidden substances, a hint will appear in the substance details. The user can then use the replace function to use the suggested substance instead of the old one.
The Certificate of Expenditure screen will be enhanced in order to find (selected either by rule-based selection or by non-standard selection) all MDSs with a special Application Code (e.g. Lead in Bearing Shells) within a group of MDSs.
After the implementation of a new version of GADSL an IMDS process shall scan all MDSs containing substances with a confidential flag which refer to a newly flagged GADSL substance.
Default setting is "open requests".
|Development Sample Report Check
|Iterates over the MDS tree and flags development sample MDSs or Modules.
|New version check
|Check for new versions of referenced MDSs. Every referenced MDS or module in the tree is checked for new available versions. The newest version for own, published or received references is mentioned in the information message.
|Duty-to-declare substance reference check
|Check if duty-to-declare substances are referenced over a defined limit. This check iterates over every substance in the MDS tree and compares its proportion (in %) with the amount of the complete MDS/Module. If the proportion exceeds the percent value in the parameter "Limit (in %)" an information message is displayed.
|Prohibited substance reference check
|Check if prohibited substances are referenced over a defined limit. This check iterates over every substance in the MDS tree and compares its proportion (in %) with the amount of the complete MDS/Module. If the proportion exceeds the percent value in the parameter "Limit (in %)" an information message is displayed.
|SVHC substance reference check
|Check if SVHC substances are referenced over a defined limit. This check iterates over every substance in the MDS tree and compares its proportion (in %) with the amount of the complete MDS/Module. If the proportion exceeds the percent value in the parameter "Limit (in %)" an information message is displayed.
|Verify MDS references against a Microsoft Excel Sheet.
|Verifies if MDS references are or are not contained in a Microsoft Excel Sheet. Every MDS or module reference in the tree is compared to entries in a column in an Excel Spreadsheet. The file can be selected with a file open dialog. Either the Part/Item/Mat.-No., the module ID or the node ID can be compared. Additionally it can be defined if the reference should occur in the excel sheet or not. Depending on the selection, an information message is displayed if the reference was or was not found in the excel file. The column in the sheet is specified by a column number, starting with 1. A column header should not be used.
|ELV heavy metals Check
|Check if substances of the ELV heavy metals group are referenced. This check iterates over every substance in the MDS tree and displays an information message when a substance of the ELV heavy metals group was found. Related substance groups are: Lead or its compounds, Chromium(VI)-salts, Mercury or its compounds, Cadmium or its compounds.
|Parts Marking check
|Check for correct Parts Marking. This check verifies if the Parts Marking question has been answered when the Component MDS/Module is relevant for Parts Marking. In case it was not answered an information message is displayed, independent from the weight of the relevant material. Remark: In case the weight exceeds defined thresholds the IMDS Default Check displays an error message when executed. NEW: The entire MDS tree structure is checked for polymeric marking, not only the top node.
The Examiner profile screen was rearranged in order to place all relevant functions in one screen.
The icons in toolbar and menus as well as main application windows have been reworked.
Internal search mechanisms were improved - the Favorites list is displayed faster.
For hidden MDSs and basic substances in the product structure tree, the detail panel has a remark "hidden" in the field "Type".
PDF Security settings were adapted, so that only printing is allowed.
Detailed information can also be found in the IMDS-a2 User Manual.
