Decision Support Systems: Water Resources Planning by Daniel P. Loucks, Joao R. da Costa

By Daniel P. Loucks, Joao R. da Costa

Numerous optimization and simulation types are actually com- monly used to aid water source planners and bosses determine, assessment and expect themultiple affects from va- rious activities or judgements you could make concerning the deve- lopment and administration of a region's water assets. Cur- hire advancements in machine expertise are making it pos- sible to hyperlink those types to courses that offer an in- terface betwe- en the choice maker and their versions and compu- ters. the quantity discusses how those so-called deci- sion aid platforms might be most sensible constructed and used bythose considering water assets making plans and administration.

Putting Technology into Practice The reasons for accepting any new technology encompass the basic motivating factors of money, power and status. Managers and agencies may adopt new technology through fear of obsolescence and concern for the loss of an existing advantage or status in the profession. The more conscientious may fear the loss of an opportunity to do their job better. Companies may see opportunities for increased profits by quickly applying the new technology before market conditions and competitors can adjust.

Because computer technology is developing at such a rapid rate, it is possible to quickly become out of date unless a conscious effort is 40 made to keep abreast of new developments. These developments often mean a task can be carried out faster or cheaper or in a different way that was previously considered possible. Contrasting this is a perception, often held by those decision, makers not involved in day-to-day use or developments of decision support systems, that anything can be achieved at the press of a mouse button or keyboard key, and at minimal cost.
