# The drawer

This sample image shows you the drawer of Production. The top-right once again shows the impact, in this case, of the selected process.

Process drawer

If the numbers are too big or small, they are shown using unit prefixes to make them easier to read. For example, a very small impact may be shown in milligrams (represented as mg) instead of in grams.

# Processes tab

By default the drawer opens with the “Processes” tab open, where you see inputs to the selected process. This tab shows you a list of inputs to the selected process (Production in the example).

You can edit here how much of that input your process needs. For the case shown, you can edit how much Plastics, at manufacturer you need for the production of a toaster. Each time you edit, the system will recalculate and update the diagram on the left. To see the specific numbers, the impacts of each process are shown on the right (and represented in the diagram).

By default the list is ordered based on your currently selected impact category (climate change in the example). You can change that order with the Order by button, or search for a specific process inside this list with the search button.

Inputs are themselves also processes, so you can navigate them by clicking on their name. If they have processes inside them, you will open a drawer like the current one.

Note: you might realize that some processes look a bit different. We will talk about different types of processes in a future section.

# Emissions and resources tab

Emissions and resources drawer

The “Emissions and resources” tab lets you edit the list of elementary flows that have a direct onsite impact on nature. The are the core of Earhtster's calculations (mostly behind the scenes, you only have to worry about your product's direct emissions).

As with processes, you can edit the values directly here, and see the effects on your cycle right away.

# Information tab

Information drawer

The “Info” tab lets you see and edit metadata, and perform actions on the selected process. The drawer will adapt to the type of process you have selected.

In the description you will be able to record any assumptions regarding this process (notes on why you selected it, how you gathered the value for it, any conversions, etc).

Here you also find buttons to perform the most common actions. We will talk more about those actions in a future section about advanced actions with processes
