Does SimaPro Flow have database parameters and project parameters?

« Go Back


In SimaPro Flow, there are only project parameters. So, within your projects, you can create and edit the parameters you use there.

When importing a project from  SimaPro desktop, the database parameters will be excluded in the CSV file that was created via the 'Export to platform' function. This is because the database parameters are often unrelated to the project and create a lot of unnecessary parameters. Therefore, if you use database parameters in your model, you will have to add these manually in your Flow model as they will not be included in the exported desktop model. However, the project parameters will still be included.

Note! Please make sure to use the File>Export to Platform function when exporting a project from SimaPro desktop. 

If you need a lot of the same parameters from a different project, you can ask support to help you do this transition.
