This study aims to construct a practical forecasting model for the seismic damage restoration of city water supply functions by using experts empirical knowledge as well as the functional data of the characteristics of water supply networks. The model itself is so simple and tedious computational time for the complicated network interlinkage analysis can be avoided. This forecasting model has been designed for the practical use that it can not only present a solid output of information required for planning for seismic damage prevention but also be a useful training device for personnel engaged in water supply operations.
