Life Cycle Thinking is day by day spreading outside scientific circles to assume a key role in the modern production system. Rewarded by consumers or ruled by governments an increasing number of firms is focusing on the assessment of their industrial processes. ENEA supports the adoption of such practice in small companies supplying them with simplified LCA tools; extending their database with value and up-to-date data published by the European Commission is of primary importance in order to provide effective assistance. This paper presents and demonstrates how the MOMIS (and RELEVANT) systems may be coupled and extended to actually provide a time and effort effective support in developing and deploying such an integration solution. The paper describes all the stages involved in the Extract Transform and Load process, with strong emphasis on the benefits the integration designer can achieve by the means of the semi-automatic definition of inter-attribute mappings and transformation functions [1,2] on a large number of records.
