by Gary F. Goforth, South Florida Water Management, District, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Critical Water Issues and Computer Applications


Once the decision was made to develop an advisory system for the operation of water control structures within the South Florida Water Management District, a schedule of activities leading to the completion of a prototype was generated. The initial element of the schedule was a prework conference which brought the system developers together with the operations experts, control system engineers, control room radio operators and District management. Subsequent tasks included formalizing a conceptual system design, assembling a detailed scope of work, allocating development work among internal staff and external consultants, taking an inventory of the data and data analysis tools used by the experts, documenting the various operational rules, and testing various knowledge representation paradigms.
