The Project PiReM is divided in three parts:
Task 1: further development of the long-term rehabilitations strategy
Task 2: further development of the mid-term rehabilitations strategy
Task 3: upgrading with a hydraulic net analyses / scenario analyses
The existing software PiReP - Pipe Rehabilitation Planning System is a decision support system for supporting the planning of rehabilitation steps on water pipelines and will be upgraded in the project. PiReP supports by using two modules, the long-term rehabilitations strategy and afterwards, but separately, the mid-term rehabilitations strategy by calculating rehabilitation priorities.
In Task 1, the long-term strategy will be upgraded by using new statistic and macroeconomic developments for optimization of the rehabilitation steps.
Task 2 focuses on implementing business management aspects for optimizing re-investigations into the decision support. By adding the economic to the technical data as well as a connection to a geographical information system, PiReP can be used as an integrated tool for rehabilitation management.
In Task 3 the developments focuses on the influences of hydraulic capacity compared with scenario analysis like essential supply to the rehabilitation plan.
