BOM import

BOM Import

  • Automatic creation of GaBi models
  • Consistent allocation of materials and processes
  • Transfer of your existing product structure into the GaBi model

The required
data to create an LCA flows into a table prepared for the import into the GaBi software. The existing bill of materials (BOM) for the selected product serves as a basis and is usually used and supplemented.

The final version of the bill of materials to be imported contains 
information not only on the components used, but on the materials and their respective mass fractions in the overall product. In addition there is also information about manufacturing processes and transport routes.

The material information of the bill of materials is linked in a mapping process with the corresponding environmental profiles of the GaBi database.

When importing, the hierarchical structure of the bill of material is also transfered to the GaBi model.

The life cycle assessment of the product model generated in this way can then be calculated at the push of a button.
