- Direct BOM Import into LCA Software

0

GaBi DfX is the professional software for compliance and sustainable product development with a view to the end of life phase. If you want to consider different regulations during product design, such as the EU Directives for end-of-life vehicles, for waste electrical and electronic equipment, energy using products or for the restriction of hazardous substances and at the same time want to keep the environmental performance of your product in focus - then GaBi DfX is your tool. Of course GaBi DfX is compatible with GaBi LCA models.

With GaBi DfX you can…

  • act on to the requirements of directives, laws and clients
  • ensure your enterprise's cost effectiveness
  • use one, transparent product model for all life cycle considerations
  • economically manage product-relevant data and models with a single tool

Import directly from Bill of Materials

GaBi DfX is ideal for analysing very complex products such as from the transportation, aerospace or electronic sectors. It includes a standard interface to import LCA-relevant data directly from Bill of Materials (BOM). This very easy to handle and extremely powerful feature allows complex products or a large number of products to be analysed with in almost no time.

Customized solutions

We are happy to discuss customizing solutions for you to integrate GaBi DfX into your company-specific IT landscape.

  • Visualisation of the order of disassembly
  • Demonstration of information on the joining technologies used
  • Display of the material flows according to the Sankey-Diagramm

  • Logging of the defined disassemblies in the end-of-life model
  • Reporting of the disassembly order
  • Display of material flows and the respective recycling method

  • The ISO rates are created automatically by GaBi DfX based on the information given in the product model
  • Verification of the required rate calculation according to the EU ELV directive
  • Implementation of additional forms on demand possible

  • Concise and transparent display of parts and components
  • Visualisation of the material composition of the product or component
  • Enumerating of the materials and traceability of individual components
  • Tracing of hazardous materials / illegal substances

  • Cost analysis for End-of-Life scenarios
  • Breakdown of flow costs, disassembling costs, machine costs and personnel costs
  • Identification of cost driver in the recycling

  • Modelling of disassembly and recycling scenarios
  • Incorporation of individual efficiencies of the recycling processes
  • Easy modelling of input-output-dependencies through variable flow quantities
