Balancing compliance, sustainability and profitability can be hard
Complete compliance and sustainability analyses, in minutes
To help our client answer these questions, Makersite designed a Full Material Declaration (FMD) importer alongside with an AI-supported engine to establish complete supply chain models of the products. This allows to predict manufacturing burdens associated with the use of certain raw material as well as parts used in the production of electronic equipment. Our system connects the Bill of Material (BOM) of a product – a document stating the parts involved in the building of a product, their composition and the amount needed – and the FMD stating the provenance of the parts and their compliance status to create a digital twin of the product.
Compliance and sustainability teams can then precisely calculate the amounts of fees to pay, access a complete model of the product supply chain, as well as full LCAs with unparalleled accuracy, all of this in minutes instead of months. Designers can now see the cost of their choices dynamically and make changes accordingly with the help of a smart suggestion engine.
This way, key insights are accessible right away, and teams don’t have to wait an eternity to make more sustainable and compliant choices.
Transforming sustainability and compliance into business drivers
Automated compliance assessment
Makersite helped our client to save up to 8x on compliance assessment with minimal effort: all that is needed is to drag and drop a BOM on the platform.
From months to minutes
Our client reduced the time of LCAs analyses from 6 months to minutes while increasing the accuracy, giving them the opportunity to innovate and correct mistakes faster.
Complex questions, simple results
Our platform helps our client answering complex questions such as material choices according to multiple criteria to make the best decision for the broadest range of stakeholders with clear and actionable insights.
