EPESUS Industry Software is capable of identifying the material and energy ﬂows throughout the life cycle processes of products and determine the environmental impacts through LCA. It provides assistance in the fulﬁllment of environmental requirements and boosting the competitiveness of industrial establishments in the international domain.

How Epesus Industry Works
If pre-designed components do not fit with our needs, users can design components to model real life needs in platform data inventory. Moreover, Users can design system models to model different scenarios and flows between processes of real life systems. These system models will help us to store real life relations and to do before after cases, trend analyses, material flow analyses, network analysis. System models will help us to model networks of facilities, processes and other components in a graph manner. In this structure, we can describe System Model as a model of network of sub components of our focus. System models can include models or processes and defined material flows between processes.
Processes, flows, units to describe any process and its inner mechanism details are described according to LCA structure. For either single component LCA or complete network analyses, the same structure in used. The system models can be also used for network based LCA result benchmarking.
Users can perform analysis using different metrics and methods. Users choose proper KPIs and sustainability metrics to define proper measurement aspects for any model. Strongest aim and motivation of EPESUS, is to improve system based on chosen metrics. We also have some major functionalities about monitoring and measurement of success.
