Why choose SimaPro PhD?

Advanced modeling

SimaPro PhD supports advanced modeling with process and project parameters, scenario analysis and uncertainty calculation with Monte Carlo simulation. Furthermore, you can gain insight into unit processes and the allocation of multiple output processes, conduct a weakpoint analysis and model complex waste treatment systems.

Scenarios with parameters

Build scenarios with process and project parameters. Using parameters in your model simplifies your work and gives you the flexibility to easily change values or assumptions in your model.

Visualise results

SimaPro PhD has a powerful network view that will let you dig deep into your model and visualize your results. This way of presenting your results helps you easily find hotspots and investigate them further.

"We have been using SimaPro for over a decade now. Currently as a server application, which is much more convenient when you have several users. We often need to go deep into the inventory to see where specific impacts come from, with SimaPro this is possible. Also working with parameters makes SimaPro extra valuable."
