Integrated Decision Support Framework

TRUST (TRansitions to the Urban Water Services of Tomorrow) Project
An Integrated Framework for the development of a Decision Support System (DSS) is described, facilitating strategic decision-making for the long-term city metabolism planning problem. A novel methodology for comparing and selecting alternative solutions is presented employing Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis and multiple scenarios handling resulting in a system able to deal with uncertain futures, complementing the modules developed in WP54 and using the same platform (AWARE-P) as the other software applications delivered in WA5. The DSS assists in the decision making process by managing problem definition, structuring/analysis and solving. This document outlines the Integrated Decision Support Framework upon which the DSS will ultimately be delivered. Succinctly, this is the software environment in which the DSS will be constructed, describing the concepts, data structures, data flows and associations that will be required to bring it to fruition.
