Life Cycle data has naturally different levels of preciseness. Generic data provided by the common LCA databases includes a range of data from different sources and different quality ranging from approximated or calculated data sets to data based on primary data e.g. association data.
However, when the data is used for your LCA the model(s), based on your data about your manufacturing (most precise data) it is used to, identify the main sources of impact and therefore focus areas for the improvement of the model.
The improvement can be done through data collection at suppliers, more detailed scenario analysis or n general research about the process.
