i would like to make a foreground system depend on several parameters. Then, i want to calculate a LCIA for 1000 different cases (defined by different values for parameters) with same foreground system? Is it possible without typing in every case and calculate all 1000 cases by hand using olca ipc API?

Thanks for your help,

Yes, you can either define the input distributions for each parameter and run the native Monte Carlo simulations in openLCA, or you can modify the parameters using OLCA-IPC and record the results for each iteration (this is what I usually do as it allows me to track what inputs were used for each iteration). The end of the olca-ipc documentation hints at how to do this via the IPC, look at the "o.ParameterRedef" section of the code here.
