There are several projects of D/A/VE with different approaches to the selection process. Considering the functionalities of the resources selection model of our project, the main objective of this paper is to present the development of a prototype/demonstrator tool to support it. As result a tool, named Selec_E A/V_V0, was developed and providing following features: pre-selection of resources with and without integration of the value analysis (VA), and final selection of resources. This tool supports the development of BM_VEARM selection model and permits the validation of the importance of VA integration in the final performance of the resources system selected.
