The best thing about this software is that it is very easy to use, even for someone with no prior experience to this type of program. There is no need for tutorials since the process is mostly just pluggin in the data needed for case comparisons. It is a useful program especially during the initial design process because it helps you narrow down your options to strategies that are specifically helpful to your design specifications and conditions. The only draw back I found with the information provided, is that the graphics (the graphs) did not reflect the most accurate or detailed analysis possible. I found myself having to guage most of the numbers because there was no meter for its exact count. Also, because the data entry process was so easy and very rudimentary, I found that it was very easy to overlook the slight changes made for the different scenarios.
Regardless, I still highly recommend this software to anybody wishing to integrate sustainability strategies in their designs, especially during the preliminary stage. The analysis you will get can only help you and narrow down your options.
