WPA should check Disclosure Levels before generating IPC-1752A Class D material disclosures

WPA should check Disclosure Levels before generating IPC-1752A Class D material disclosures

WPA accounts for the Disclosure Level of supplier part data.  These may be either Full Disclosure or Pre-qualification (just compliance yes or no).  In cases where there is mixed data of both types, WPA allows the user to Generate IPC-1752A Class D material disclosure that is incomplete, according to the IPC requirements of Class D to include all homogeneous materials and their substances.

 

This means that the user must check, for every BOM, the Compliance Status Report and the Table of Supplier Parts before generating the IPC report.  It would be a significatn improvement if WPA could automatically check this table to ensure all the data is of the Full Disclosre type, otherwise, set a flag or generate a warning message so that the user does not generate an incompleted Class D disclosure.

 

It would be a further improvement if this Full Disclosure flag could be made available right away upon searching the BOM or list of BOM's.

 

It would be yet another useful enhancement to also indicate if a given Company Part has more than one Supplier Part all with Full Disclosure, as reporting this data can be confusing since all the Supplier Part materials and substances will be reported, which does not represent an actual product which would use only one supplier's part at a time.
