PackageSmart User Types

PackageSmart Access TypesPackageSmart utilizes a role-based user model, which allows three different levels of access to the application:Administrator – The Administrator role has full access to the application to create, change or delete models, add materials and processes to the inventory and change the number of levels in the model. Administrators can also create report templates, which other user roles can use when creating reports. Administrators are typically the team members best versed in LCA but, don’t worry — if you don’t think you’re an expert - EarthShift Global is here to help.User – User-level access is designed for engineers, designers, and other professionals who aren’t specialists in LCA but who wish to create models or iterations of existing models. User-level privileges are similar to Administrator privileges, with the exception of being able to add to the inventory and change the number of levels.Viewer – The Viewer role is “read-only” - the person can interact with existing models, run analyses and scenarios (similar to a calculator) and run reports, but cannot make changes to the underlying models. Viewers are often managers, but can also be engineers or designers who are new to PackageSmart and want to ease into the LCA process.
