Advanced product life cycle modelling with product stages
Wide range of impact assessment methods included
Inventory and Input/output databases included
Analysis of groups

Define how life cycle impact assessment results are presented. Instead of presenting results per process or product stage, they can be presented per function, such as transport, energy, production, etc.

Save inventory data as system processes

This feature allows you to create a system-level process from a unit-level process, which can anonymize data and significantly improve calculation speed.

Library switch

This function allows you to switch between unit and system libraries in the calculation setup without having to change your model. Systems are precalculated inventories and using these will speed up calculation time.

Interactive network view
Import data in .csv and SimaPro format

You can import data into SimaPro in .csv and SimaPro format.

Export data in .csv and SimaPro format
Export data in .xlsx and .txt format

You can export all your data from SimaPro in .xlsx and .txt format (not for re-import).

Import and export of EcoSpold 1 data

You can import EcoSpold 1 data into SimaPro or export from SimaPro.

Export of ILCD data
Edit system descriptions
Interactive tree view

With the interactive tree view, you can present your results as a process tree, where each process or product stage is shown individually. This is unlike the network view, where every process or product stage that is used will be presented only once, even if it is used by multiple processes or product stages. If a system is looped (process A uses B uses A) only the network view can be shown.

Parameters/scenario analysis

Using parameters in your model simplifies your work and gives you the flexibility to easily change values or assumptions in your model. You can also use parameters to do extensive scenario analysis.

Monte Carlo/uncertainty analysis

SimaPro allows you to calculate uncertainty in your inventory results using a Monte Carlo analysis. A Monte Carlo analysis gives you an indication of how reliable, complete, and representative your results are. The ecoinvent unit libraries come with uncertainty data based on the “pedigree matrix”.

Export to matrix

This feature allows you to export processes as a matrix to excel for external processing.

Copy chart to Excel

This feature allows you to copy a chart to Excel with the underlying data included.

Multi-user version with shared database

Some SimaPro plans are available as a multi-user version. SimaPro’s multi-user feature facilitates collaboration by allowing several people to work simultaneously on the same project in one shared central database from different geographical locations.

Hide confidential data

Allows you to protect confidential data libraries or projects with a password and define the level of detail shown to external parties.

Two-way COM interface

Using the two-way COM interface, you can link SimaPro to other software (such as CAD/ CAM, ERP and Product Lifecycle Management systems). This opens up the possibility to use LCA results in other tools, or to receive useful data in SimaPro (please note that you need to program your own interface).

Direct link from inventory to Excel and SQL database

This feature will save you time and reduce the margin for error when it comes to data entry. It also ensures that all your linked data is always up-to-date; any changes made in the source data will be automatically updated in SimaPro.

Excel scenario calculator

Import parameter sets that you defined in an Excel spreadsheet and save a lot of manual work in the modelling phase.

SimaPro Explore
Set up an Explore project

Each project is linked to an LCA model and a questionnaire. An LCA expert sets up the project and invites Business users to it.

Create a baseline scenario
Build a large number and variety of scenarios

With SimaPro Explore you can investigate a larger number and variety of scenarios compared to SimaPro Share.

Copy, edit and compare scenarios
Calculate and analyze impact assessment
