I would like anyone to help me with how to speed up the calculations in openLCA.
openLCA calculations were slow in my old laptop despite increasing the memory to 8 GB. I recently purchased a new laptop (16 GB, i7) and increased the memory allocation to 16 GB and downloaded the some libraries to speed up the calculations (shown on the welcome screen).
However, the speed is still slow for many product systems when I use 'analyze' rather than 'quick' result. For example, I created a product system of 7 unit processes representing electricity generation of 7 countries. Ever after running for 15-20 mins, the calculations were not complete. I had to close openLCA and restart to stop the calculations.
Is openLCA this slow when doing 'analyze' feature? What am I doing wrong?
