WP1 - Requirements and System Architecture Specification

This work package will plan all critical elements of the project. The system has the potential to touch a vast array of businesses, governmental organisations and consumers, all utilising this consistent ecological accounting system, so a detailed map of all scenarios (interactions) between every class of user is to be mapped out. It will define the means by which product models can be developed to reflect business added value in ecological terms by studying the existing practices of the industry partners (farming, manufacturing & retailing). This WP will devise the first “primitive” eco-cost of manufacturing the products in the collaborative study involving industry partners, without the availability of a recursive value chain. All ICT functional interactions and the core ecological accounting module will be specified.
