The Scenario Creation Tool provides a structured method for the earliest stages of design in technology development. The core function of the scenario creation tool is to generate and rank scenarios of potential Wave Energy Converter (WEC) attributes and inform the user on the areas of the parameter space that are most likely to yield commercial success.

This user guide provides an outline for how the tool should be set up by the user, definitions of its features, and an overview of the inputs and outputs that the user should be aware of when running the Scenario Creation Tool.
