Simapro 7.3

Function equations are also supported by SimaPro when the user adds new parameters or elements. Meanwhile, the user can modify and add elements into database and apply them when new lifecycle is to be modeled. The size of the colour bar indicates the scale of the impact:

Software Update Instructions (from 7.0.0 to 7.3.3)

Graphical construction of the life cycle of a product is an unique feature to others. Function equations are also supported by SimaPro when the user adds new parameters or elements.

The package requires the user to build a life cycle of simapeo and fill details in each stage of product life cycle such as material, process, transport, recycle, reuse and disposal; and then, the results of product life cycle network and ecological impact are presented.

Meanwhile, the user can modify and add elements into database and apply them when new lifecycle is to be modeled. Gabi 6 is a well-recognized software tool for modeling products and systems from a life cycle perspective.

Try SimaPro - SimaPro

The life cycle modeling in Gabi 6 is in a very clear way to illustrate and represent the whole life cycle of the product. Also, the graphic function is limited. Furthermore, the database can be modified and extended based on customer's requirement. However, the results chart and inventories is not easy to illustrate because so many data are listed and not visible in the table.

This function is helpful for designer to compare the LCIA of different products, which is particular useful for eco-design optimization. At the right side of each element of the presentation network, ecological impact indicator is illustrated as a red color bar.

About In data simxpro stage, the user can input the amount of material, processes and relative data available in the huge databases built in the package see Table 2which are collected from a large number of sources related to variety of assessment methods as listed in Table 3. The results provide detail data chart and inventories similar to those in SimaPro.

The Gabi database has been widely applied in various areas in Europe. Before LCA process, the user should build a life cycle of the product in a graphic diagram as shown in Figure 6. It is similar to SimaPro which uses life cycle framework and generating network.

In data collection stage, the user can input the amount of material, processes and relative data available in the huge databases built in the package see Table 2which are collected from a large number of sources related to variety of assessment methods as listed in Table 3.

About The Gabi database has been widely applied in various areas in Europe. In addition, the interface of Gabi is complicated to use and not user-friendly, which looks like an out of date version of Visual Basic programme's interface.

The breakdown network of processes and materials is shown in Fig.

Figure 5 shows an example that the comparison between the initial design of gearbox red colour with its optimized eco-design green colour. It contains all major impact Assessment methodologies as listed in Table 3.

Based on the life cycle, the user defines inputs and outputs of material and energy for each stage; and then a sustainability report including resources and emissions is generated. The size of the colour bar indicates the scale of the impact:
