A Decision Support System for the Prediction of Wastewater Pumping Station Failures Based on CBR Continuous Learning Model
Nowadays the communities are facing the problem of waste and wastewater. While wastewater systems have become more complex, the need for development of sustainable solution for wastewater management emerged. Therefore, the development of a Decision Support System (DSS) for wastewater disposal management became necessary. This paper presents a new DSS for predicting the failure of wastewater pumping stations, the system architecture and its implementation. The prediction model is based on the Case Based Reasoning (CBR) classification method. The standard CBR classification technique has been upgraded with an algorithm for continuous learning. The paper describes the system structure, its connection to the wastewater system, the internal processes involved in the prediction process and the implemented algorithm for continuous learning. Furthermore, the features used in the prediction are indicated along with the achieved results and the method of results evaluation. The test and obtained results indicate that the proposed DSS is efficient and capable of providing very good results in the prediction process.
