first steps to create a WF-RepTool report, key issues

Then identify the report 'for which material this report is done' (>> see user manual - reporter level, point 2.2.).

* go through the treatment process / plant

* make a process flow chart with process steps and OUTPUT fractions achieved

* use available yield data for the process and fill in to WF-RepTool report

* look for the regular documentation on yields of fractions (e.g. paper/IT documentation)

* look at fractions of treatment and check the internal name = the name normally used and/or

* look at fractions, you may describe them, and determine/estimate the composition of the fraction

>> with this information you may do a list of 'your' fractions

>> with this information you may choose OUTPUT fractions for the WF-RepTool report (continue with How do I find the correct names for 'my' OUTPUT fractions in the WF-RepTool?) (see user manual - reporter level, points 2.3.1. / 2.3.3.)

* take the internal material oriented name for the fraction (e.g. cables x) or the main component of the fractions (e.g. iron, plastics)

* with this name or component (or any part of it) you may search in the name of OUTPUT fractions or in the remarks to OUTPUT fractions of the WF-RepTool

(see user manual - reporter level, point 2.3.2.)

Options to come yield data are:

* use the regular documentation on yields of fractions (e.g. paper/IT documentation, e.g. shift reports or daily/weekly reports or aggregated annual reports)

* if not available: if possible adapt the process and documentation procedure to get separate yield data for WEEE input categories

* if not possible: run a batch to determine data

Other options are (but not recommended = to avoid double registration):

* to add the acceptor as 'personal acceptor' to the 'list of acceptors'

* to - only as a 'last option' - write the name of the acceptor into the field for 'other'

(>> see user manual - reporter level, point 2.5.2.2.)

* if this OUTPUT fraction had been already delivered to any treatment partner and you plan to use the same one, insert data of last delivery

* if this is a new OUTPUT fraction and/or you have new plans where to delivery this OUTPUT fraction to, insert plans of technologies to be used and do best estimations

* if you have no idea where to deliver and how to treat this OUTPUT fraction, use the worst case scenario of e.g. landfilling / municipal waste incineration

Hint: call the acceptor 'stock' and you may sort the list of final fractions to find this 'stocks' and to adapt results when data are provided

* provide yield data for interim technologies

* provide composition data of final fractions delivered to final technologies

(see also composition data, What is the difference between yield data and composition data? and What can I do if I do not have yield data/composition data from next/final treatment steps?)

(see also What can I do when I have no idea how to classify the use of any component?)

* check the bottom lines of 'Final' (>> see user manual - reporter level, point 3.3.) or 'Calculation' (>> see user manual - reporter level, point 3.4.) if you have reached 100 % of final fractions

* check in the 'Overview' (>> see user manual - reporter level, point 3.2.) if you have no red frames and/or shades
