Possibilities of using expert methods for sewer system maintenance optimisation

Dino Obradović, Marija Šperac, Saša Marenjak

Abstract

This paper provides an overview of the state-of-the-art research on the possibilities of using expert methods (artificial neural networks, genetic algorithms, expert systems, decision trees, Markov chains, and ant colony algorithm) for optimising maintenance of sewerage systems. Timely maintenance of sewerage systems is significant as it ensures their proper functioning, repair cost reductions, basic operation of the system, drainage of waste water from households to wastewater treatment plants, and discharge to the receiving water body. Possible uses of expert methods for optimising maintenance of sewerage systems, aimed at reducing maintenance costs, are presented.
