The Benefits and Costs Assessment (BCA) developed in the deliverable D6.1 is then implemented in a toolbox aimed at allowing an automatic application of the methodology starting from the scenario simulation files produced by the WP2 (in the format produced by the ANTARES simulator developed by RTE) and allowing a complete appraisal of the cost/benefit indicators, the elaboration of a scoring parameter and the creation of a final reporting, both in tabular and graphical form. The toolbox itself is the object of the present deliverable D6.2 and the present manual constitutes a “companion booklet” allowing a practical start-up of a new user. The e-Highway2050 BCA toolbox is entirely developed in Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) for the MS-Access 2010 platform, a widely used software. The motivation for this choice is for making it easy the testing of the toolbox within off-the-shelf PCs with a basic SW endowment. The D6.2 (SW and manual) is also conceived a public deliverable of the project, with the aim to allow everybody who can be interested to download and test the BCA toolbox.
