Report Maker

SimaPro Report Maker is a tool that allows you to create graphs and tables in MS Word and MS Excel and keep them up-to-date as you change your model and data in SimaPro. It is included in the SimaPro Power, Expert and PhD plans.

Only compatible with MS Office 2010 and later.

Why choose Report Maker?

SimaPro add-on

Report Maker is an add-on for SimaPro that automatically updates tables and graphs in Word and Excel documents. This is achieved by simply copying and pasting an ‘item descriptor’ link from SimaPro into Word or Excel. The ‘item descriptor’ link contains all information needed to redo any calculations with the right amounts, methods and filter options.

A time-saving solution

Report Maker saves LCA practitioners a lot of time when creating reports with graphs and tables. When you make changes to the life cycle model in SimaPro, you can simply update the results in Word or Excel documents by clicking a button in the SimaPro Ribbon bar. You can also edit certain aspects of the layout of the graphs and tables.

Quickly create reports

If you use SimaPro Developer, you can also use Report Maker in combination with the ‘Import Scenarios’ feature to quickly generate Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) or other recurring reports.
