Dear LCA Community,


I need to run a fair number of Monte Carlos, which is going so slow with OpenLCA, and I`d like to hasten the process. I wonder is there any way more efficient than Monte Carlo in OpenLCA? Something like exporting from OpenLCA and run it in R or any other tool?

It would be really appreciated if anyone has any tips.

If you're running Monte Carlo out of the same database, I've found that you can run multiple simulations at the same time using the IPC. I've done this by just opening up several copies of a jupyter notebook and running them all using the one copy of openLCA. Of course you may run out of memory if you're doing a lot of iterations of complicated systems.
