General / New year - new Umberto update!
« on: February 08, 2017, 16:17 »
Just with the beginning of 2017 we have released a new Umberto Update on January 26th. So what’s new in Umberto NXT CO2 when you update?

Here you can find a quick overview:

Copy whole models (including net parameters)
  • New functions available in the project explorer to copy and paste whole models.
  • Select a model from the project explorer and use the context menu item 'Copy Model' to copy the desired model including its subnets and net parameters to the Windows clipboard.
  • You can now use the context menu of the 'Models' folder to paste the model from the Windows clipboard to your current or to a new project.

Usability Improvements
  • Result summary views are expanded and result details views are collapsed by default after a calculation.
  • When performing a calculation of a selection, LCIA data of intermediate exchanges will be excluded per default. This can be changed in the 'Options' dialog on the tab 'Calculation'.

Bug fixes
  • Fixed problem with automatic scaling in Windows for high screen resolutions (Ultra HD/4K).
  • Fixed exception when starting Umberto with outdated Model Migration Tool installation files.
  • 'Allocations' grid in the process specification now displays correct basic unit.
  • Process specification now correctly shows 'Reference Flow' in 'Material Type' column instead of 'Good/Bad' for reference flows at system boundaries.

A detailed description how to use the new features can be found in the Release Notes.
We recommend to install the update and always run the latest version.

The latest trial version of Umberto NXT can be obtained from our webpage.

Currently only the license owner receive update notes via e-Mail. If you are working with Umberto and like to receive these e-Mails, just send your name and your e-Mail address to marc.s.loebel@ifu.com

Data (ecoinvent v3, GaBi) / ecoinvent price change
« on: August 14, 2015, 10:18 »
Our database partner ecoinvent informed us that they will increase prices soon. The new ecoinvent prices will come into effect on October 1st 2015.

They apply for new ecoinvent licenses which will be purchased, updates of existing older ecoinvent versions to ecoinvent v3 and new list prices for our Umberto NXT licenses with included ecoinvent database (e.g. Umberto NXT LCA and Umberto NXT Universal). The Umberto license price itself stays on the same level as it is. As the price calculation of the Umberto Maintenance and Support service fee is based on the list price of all purchased Umberto and ecoinvent licenses per month and license, the fee will increase as well.

More information on the ecoinvent LCI database can be found here.

If you have any questions or would like any further information, do not hesitate to contact us at info@ifu.com or give us a call at +49 40-480-009-0.
