Abstract

A team of students from the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts (HSLU) is competing at the 2014 Solar Decathlon competition in Versailles, France. Using WPI’s 2013 Solatrium House as a benchmark, the purpose of this project was to observe, evaluate and document the HSLU team’s material selection process for their your+ house. We provided recommendations to improve the entirety of the dynamic decision-making processes. In addition, we created a manual for the Life Cycle Assessment software, SimaPro®, which can be used to assist inexperienced users. The recommendations we made will help improve team strategies for future competitions.
