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

Just click 'add report' in the bottom line of the list of available reports.

Then identify the report regarding 'for which material this report is done' - see the overview video How to identify a report? or individual cut outs under Videos for reporters.

They are structured from headline entries to more detailed sub-groups - see video How to choose the input fraction for a report?.

* 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 (see video What means yield and what means composition?) 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?)

* 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 the overview video How to fill in data on first fractions? or individual cut outs under Videos for reporters.

Options to come yield data (see video What means yield and what means composition?) 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 e.g. to avoid double registration):

* to add the acceptor as 'personal acceptor' to the 'list of acceptors' (see video How to add an acceptor to list of acceptors?)

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

To finish/complete the WF-RepTool report you have following options:

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

* if this is a new OUTPUT fraction and/or you have plans where to delivery this OUTPUT fraction to, insert plans of technologies to be used and do best estimations, mark as estimation (e.g. add to stocks: estimation)

* 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, mark data as this (e.g. add to stocks: worst case scenario)

* provide yield data for interim technologies

* provide composition data of final fractions delivered to final technologies

See the video What means yield and what means composition?

For internal further separation you may use own yield data (see How to come to yield data for 'my' OUTPUT fractions for a WF-RepTool report? = the figures!).

For external further separation you have to ask the acceptor for data. You have to insert yield data like you did it for 'your' first OUTPUT fractions - see also video Output / yield from next treatment steps and individual cut outs under Videos for reporters.

(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?)

Ask the operator of the final technology on the use of fractions/components of fractions in his technology and use this information. In case use your own knowledge on the use of fractions/components of fractions in technologies.

Choose the use from options given in the WF-RepTool - see video Fractions to final technologies II - choose the use and individual cut outs under Videos for reporters.

Take care that you have chosen the correct component data as there will be different options of use given (see video - Choice of component - fractions vs. residues vs. mixed fraction - disposal )

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

In general you should:

* 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

* check entries under 'Inspect'
