How to start to create a report with WF-RepTool?

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

Just click 'add report' in the bottom line of the list of available reports (>> see user manual - reporter level, point 2.1.).
Then identify the report 'for which material this report is done' (>> see user manual - reporter level, point 2.2.).
The INPUT fractions provided in the WF-RepTool are based on the collection categories of WEEE most used in Europe. They are structured from headline entries to more detailed sub-groups (>> see user manual - reporter level, point 2.2.1.1.). Follow the green arrows to come to the sub-groups.
A WF-RepTool report is a document/file of aggregated data about the treatment of WEEE in a / 'your' treatment company!
* 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
see How to come to data for a WF-RepTool report in general?
* 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.)
see How to come to 'my' OUTPUT fractions for a WF-RepTool report?
* 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.)
see How to come to data for a WF-RepTool report in general?
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
You have to provide information on the acceptors and technologies your OUTPUT fractions are delivered to (>> see user manual - reporter level, point 2.5.)
First priority: you may ask the WEEE system / WF-RepTool access administrator to register this company.
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.)
Enter several acceptors into WF-RepTool, use shares of daily deliveries in daily business (>> see user manual - reporter level, point 2.5.2.10.)
No, you may insert names of 'waste collectors' / 'traders' as additional information in a remark field but you should enter the physical treatment operators treating the WEEE and WEEE fractions (e.g. the shredder, the separation plant, the smelter etc.) as acceptors.
I you have no clear idea how to call the technology used, take e.g. any idea on the technology done (e.g. conditioning, separation, smelter etc.) and/or based on material you are going to treat (e.g. plastics, concrete, iron, copper etc. ) and use the searching option (>> see user manual - reporter level, point 2.5.2.6.).
You have to come to the results of final fractions forwarded to final technologies / processes - only this is the data source to classify anything as recycling, recovery or disposal.

To finish/complete the WF-RepTool report you may:
* 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

Depending on the kind of technology the acceptor runs, you have to:
* provide yield data for interim technologies
* provide composition data of final fractions delivered to final technologies
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 for first OUTPUT fractions (>> see user manual - reporter level, point 2.6.2.).
Ask the operator of the final technology on the use of fractions/components of fractions and use information; choose from options given in the WF-RepTool (>> see user manual - reporter level, point 2.7.3.); take care that you have chosen the correct component data (>> see user manual - reporter level, point 2.7.1, fractions <> residues), as there will be different options of use given.
(see also What can I do when I have no idea how to classify the use of any component?)
To check if you have finished data input for a report you may:
* 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
Set the report to 'done'; with this setting you give the message to the WEEE system / WF-RepTool access administrator that the report is finished and may be e.g. used for annual reports to the authority by them; the 'reporter' may not change data with this setting (>> see user manual - reporter level, chapter 4.).
Set your own internal campaigns to fill up 'gaps' of data and check data (structure of the report, internal OUTPUT fractions, acceptors, data from acceptors), fill in treatment results you get from partners as you get them in (i.e. during the year)
