Connect your products with scenarios to calculate a full life cycle (cradle to grave) in an easy way!
What is it?
The importer allows you to connect your products with scenarios by using an XLS importer. This saves a lot of time if you want to calculate a full life cycle for your products.
How to add it?
Step 1. Go the scenario page
Go to Input → Use & EoL stage → Products or click on this link.
Step 2. Export Excel file
Click on the 'export' button to export an Excel file
Step 3. Open the Excel file and edit the document.
The products and scenarios are shown respectively in the first column and the first row.
It's possible to insert a value in the empty area. Insert '1' if you want to link a product with a scenario. Insert '0' or leave it empty if you want to unlink it.
In the example below, Product A is linked with Scenario 1, 2 and 3. Product B is linked with Scenario 3 and Product C is not linked to any scenarios.
Save this Excel file.
Step 4. Import XLS file
Go back to the scenario page and click on the import button.
A pop-up will appear where you can upload the saved scenario Excel file by clicking on 'Select an xls file'. Click on 'Preview changes' to verify.
Step 5. Review the final changes
On the preview page, you can review the changes. And change the XLS file if needed. Click on 'Save' if you agree with the changes.
Your products are now linked with the chosen scenarios!
