Expert system to control MMBW network

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The Melbourne and Metropolitan Board of Works has started development work on a metropolitan-wide expert system that will give advice to the controllers of Melbourne's water, drainage and sewerage network. The system is expected to be fully operational within five years. The basic function of the system, called WAL, is to give advice on what action is to be taken following a fault at any of the MMBW's water, drainage or sewerage monitoring points, according to Michael Prior, project manager with the MMBW. The system's aim is to send the right person at the right time to attend each fault. This simple goal has considerable benefits in terms of improved service at a lower cost.
