Adaptation of Siec® Software for evaluation and selection of materials in complex products

This publication aims to describe the methodological innovations of Siec® around a concrete case. For LCA Conference, we selected the product as air conditioner to show the results of this software. In this item we are going to present the results of the simulation for the life cycle of the air conditioner in Siec®.

Toward the design of a generic model of interoperability for Siec Siec : Eco-Design Information System (In French : Système d’Information pour l’Eco-Conception)

Abstract: Faced with the need to take into account environmental impacts, life cycle analysis (LCA) should emerge as an engine of innovation and eco-design. It is clear that there are many barriers to their deployment. There is a need in terms of tools to facilitate their integration in the trades. So these LCA tools must be compatible
with different existing information systems. In addition, it’s also necessary that the coupling of the different data sources helps to make a decision. This article shows the needs of the company ACV Plus in terms of interoperability and HCI (Human-computer Interaction) so that the Siec could easily adapt to various
business sectors. Various peripheral tools have been developed to define data exchange formats to meet specific needs. This research aims to develop a generic bus in order to have an easier maintenance of process and avoid having an application for each need. Two thesis have been started in ESEO that one focuses on aspects of HCI and the other on aspects related to interoperability. More generally, the project aims to develop a new system with interoperable design tools
