Part of: Computerized Decision Support Systems for Water Managers


Advances in computer hardware and software have provided the opportunity for development of powerful technical information systems (TIS) for municipal water supply and distribution services. Development of TIS provides opportunities for integrating important operation and control functions which have previously been conducted independently, including: automating water works, developing supervisory data, acquisition and control systems, mathematical modeling of complex water supply and distribution networks, relational data base management systems, digital mapping of urban networks, and implementation of expert systems for decision support purposes. Presented herein are two case studies on actual implementations of TIS for Paris and the Territory of Macau based on comprehensive packages developed by Safege Consulting Engineers.
