Description

We propose an instrument to aid in the decision-making process that allows for the prioritization of needs for the water distribution network renewal planning and to identify these priorities applying the methodology Multicriteria Decision Support Systems (MDSS) and Genetic Algorithms. We consider the various influencing factors involved in decision-making. The instrument developed proposes an acceptable sequence of interventions in the water network, identifying the hierarchy of the groups of pipes before renovation work beings and takes into account all factors associated with the endogenous and exogenous factors and the technical constraints of functioning of the water network for a given planning horizon.
