Within the Analysis results from an LCA calculation, a pedigree matrix is given by every result. How is this calculated from the pedigree matrices of the input data?

Thanks!

Hi Tom, the uncertainty is calculated based on the value in the Uncertainty column of the Inputs/Outputs table of a process. You can assign a value manually or use the value from the Data quality entry column (Pedigree matrix; when you have the Pedigree matrix open, scroll down and select Use as uncertainty value). You can define the uncertainties for the pedigree matrix under Indicators and parameters - Data quality systems - <the respective DQ system> - Scroll down to the section Uncertainties.

Sorry, - after re-reading your question I think my answer does not really match your question. Yes, the scores are calculated from the pedigree scores in the Inputs/Outputs table of a process. When you calculate the results of a product system select "Assess data quality". If you then click on "Next" before calculating the results, you can specify how the DQ scores are calculated.
