DPA-System is an independent, non-profit organization which is responsible for managing the producer responsibility for the electrical and electronic equipment, batteries and accumulators and end-of-life vehicles under the Environmental Protection Act.
Central to DPA-System's management of this public task is the responsibility for the development and operation of the statutory, national producer responsibility register. The system supports a complex business logic with a vast of processes and integrations for a wide range of systems that combine the communication between many different stakeholders such as accountants, environmental management, DPA, producers, municipalities, etc. In addition, DPA today is dependent on several business-critical workflows that are manually executed - in and out of the system.
Ambitious modernization project in collaboration with Kruso
Together with Kruso, DPA has launched an ambitious modernization project where we create the next generation "Producer Responsibility Register" that to a greater extend simplifies, streamlines and automates workflows, ensures more stable operation, and provides greater flexibility in terms of further development and minimizes sources of error.
In the winter of 2017/18, we took over the existing system that we keep running while we began the initial technical analysis work to get a detailed picture of the current system and the surrounding technical landscape. At the same time, through the technical and organizational clarification phase, we have formulated the technical vision of the future system, developed system architecture and defined scope for the first version of the new Producer Register system.
