Digital Product Passport
Issue Digital product passport associated with Digital Devices
The system allows users who have physical access to a digital device to be able to register and issue the new configuration of a device as a new Digital product passport (DPP). DPP is a structured collection of product-specific data conveyed through a unique identifier. Manufacturers can issue DPPs associated with their products, usually linked to the common characteristics of a product model or batch, and in the absence of model DPPs, the system gathers information from public sources to enrich the DPPs.
In our use case, the devices are serialized items, and custodians (users with physical access), are interested in registering their product items in their inventory system and customizing them with optional and modified components. The system generates DPP documents reflecting the hardware characteristics and environmental details of the devices. Each device has an individual QR tag with product information and information about the included components (memory, storage, network adapters, graphics cards, etc). As the devices undergo modifications, such as repairs or refurbishments, new DPPs can be issued for each modified device. Finally, during the recycling process, the electronic components will be disassembled, and the corresponding DPP for that individual product will also be recycled
Different stakeholders receive varying levels of information from the DPPs, according to your role you can access different information about a product item:
- Anonymous user: basic and public product details.
- Custodian: extended details, useful for maintenance and replacement.
- Repairer: extended details, repair-related information with repair manuals if found.
- Recycler: material composition and dismantling information if found.
The product passport information can be found as part of a product inventory in the "Digital Passport" tab, as in this example:
