Parameter and its functions

Post by balintsimon » 30 Jan 2012 10:35

Hallo Everybody,
how can be linked the parameter value to the differnet input or output values? (I´ve used GaBi till now, and there it was really symple, but in openLCA don´t find neighter in dokumetation nor with browsing the functions)
Many Thanks for the answer!
Kind Regards
Bálint Simon

Hi Simon,
in openLCA, you specify parameters on the parameters page, e.g. for a process, and can use the so defined parameters then, for a process, on the input/output sheet. This means that you cannot cross-reference from input to output, e.g., for modeling non-linear relations. However, what you can do is define a parameter that influences both input and output, and can enter values for this parameter, which has often the same effect as when you have a direct non-linear relation between input and output.
Otherwise, I'd be interested if you could post an example where this approach does not work.
Best wishes,
Andreas

Hallo Andreas,
I could not good explain my problem. It is only a basic problem: how could connect the parameter to an input or output value which will be ruled by this parameter. I can tell an example from GaBi. In GaBi in the input/output table are given an extra column where the name of parameters can be inserted so the flow value will be ruled by the inserted parameter. But in openLCA I donot find the how can set this connection between parameters and I/O flows. I hope this explanation is OK English does not belong to my strenghts :)
Sincerely
Bálint

Hallo Andreas,
the solution have been found :). One of the co-researcher of the Istitute has explained me (She use openLCA since longer time). (sound really easy: only insert the name of parameter in the value filed of flow instead of absolute value) 1000 Thanks!
Sincerely
Bálint
