Hello,

I would like to perform the Monte Carlo analysis in OpenLCA, I have a question on input data on the uncertainty distribution. In particular, I would like to know in which unit has to be reported the standard deviation, in the unit of the flow or in percentage (like in Gabi)?

And then I have another question, is it possible to performe a sentitivity analysis in OpenLCA to assess the most important parameters?

Thank you very much,

Simona

Hi Simona,

1) When choosing an impact category for which you would like to display the results of the Monte Carlo Simulation, the unit is indicated on the right hand side. For flows, you have to check the respective flow property manually.

2) A tutorial on how to use parameter for sensitivity analysis is available on our website: http://www.openlca.org/learning/

I hope this helps.

I don't find the "2) A tutorial on how to use parameter for sensitivity analysis is available on our website:". Could you put the link for the direct file, please?
