GANetXL is an optimisation add-in for Microsoft Excel®


The Centre for Water systems is committed to the practical application of its work. For example, the CWS sewer deterioration modelling tool based on a novel data-mining approach, evolutionary polynomial regression (EPR), has been validated through an industry funded project (UKWIR). The tool has recently been used to model clean and wastewater asset deterioration at Anglian Water (in collaboration with Mouchel), to model the natural rate of rise in leakage at a UK water company (in collaboration with RPS Group), and to model discolouration risk at another UK water company.

Our optimisation software and expertise has been used in practical applications such as to tackle the operational management of the water supply system in Moravia (Czech Republic) in association with the DHI-Hydroinform.

Our work on spatial ordered weight averaging in decision-making is used as a training resource by the GIS software company ESRI, and was awarded the 2006 best paper award by the Environmental Software and Modelling journal.
