6 1 Introducton The CARE-S project s funded by the Europen Communty nd ms to develop methods nd softwre tht wll enble engneers of the wter undertngs to estblsh nd mntn n effectve mngement of ther sewer nd storm wter networs, rehblttng the rght sewers t the rght tme. The results shll be dssemnted s mnul on Best Mngement Prctce (BMP) for sewer networ rehbltton. Ths project s orgnsed n the followng Worng Pcges (WP): WP1: Constructon of control pnel of performnce ndctors (PI) for rehbltton; WP2: Descrpton nd vldton of structurl condton; WP3: Descrpton nd vldton of hydrulc performnce; WP4: Rehbltton technology nformton system; WP5: Soco-economc consequences; WP6: Mult-crter decson support; WP7: Elborton of CARE-S prototype; WP8: Testng nd vldton of CARE-W prototype; WP 9: Dssemnton; WP 10: Project mngement TUD s responsble for WP6, whch s dvded nto three sub-tss, ech one wth ts specfc objectve, schedule, delverbles nd methodology. Ts 6.1: Choosng the rght sewer rehbltton technque, n economc s well s techncl terms, s done from set of cnddtes fulfllng the requrements under specfc locl condtons. Drect rehbltton costs wll be systemtclly nlysed nd documented for vrety of open trenchng nd no dg rehbltton technologes. Beyond these drect costs, the support system wll hve to te nto ccount multtude of other fctors, whch re usully collected by wstewter compnes preprng publc tender on specfc rehbltton project. Although from fnncl vewpont, the wste wter compny would choose the lowest bd, t hs lso to consder externl costs tht re not chrged drectly to the wste wter compny, such s ncresed opertng costs nd trvel tmes for rod users. These costs re elborted n WP5. Sub-ts 6.1 s scheduled for the frst yer of the project. Ts 6.2: Selectng cost-effcent rehbltton projects s requred becuse the totl cost of ll vble rehbltton projects usully exceeds the vlble budget. So the projects must be rned by effcency crter n order to spend the money on those projects promsng the most postve effects. Cost reductons from shred costs due to smultneous rehbltton of dfferent systems wll led to n erler dte for optml cton. Other rehbltton projects my hve to be postponed due to lower cost-effcency. The more effcent the projects re the more cn be spent on other rehbltton projects thus ncresng overll cost-effcency. Wth regrd to the publc nterest, rehbltton projects should be rned on the bss of comprehensve set of crter nd procedure s well s results should be trnsprent nd esy to understnd by poltcl decson mers nd the publc. Mult-crter methods wll be prepred for wstewter networ rehbltton projects, tested nd ncluded n CARE-S. Sub-ts 6.2 s scheduled for the second yer of the project. 5

7 CARE-S D16 report Ts 6.3: Rehbltton progrmmes nd strteges re developed n n nterctve lernng process, where lterntves re compred, evluted nd mproved wth respect to ther costs nd effects n the short nd long run. Ths process needs support from specl longterm forecstng nd mult-crter evluton tools. The forecstng tools developed n WP2 nd WP3 for the mterl nd hydrulc deterorton of sewers wll be complemented by forecstng procedures for the effects of specfc rehbltton progrmmes nd technologes on wde rnge of performnce ndctors s specfed n WP1. A procedure wll be estblshed tht llows forecstng nd evlutng the effects of sewer rehbltton progrmmes tht re defned for tme perod of 10 to 20 yers wth respect to nnul mlege nd technologes of rehbltton of specfc types of sewers. The procedure wll llow the clculton of the monetry nd non-monetry, drect nd ndrect long-term effects. Rehbltton progrmmes wll be evluted ccordng to dynmc nvestment plnnng methodology. Whle the pre-defned lterntve rehbltton progrmmes my not fulfl ll networ performnce stndrds t mnmum rehbltton costs, some prmeters from the set of rehbltton optons my hve to be re-defned n order to meet the performnce stndrds t cceptble costs. Ths wll be fcltted by n nterctve procedure to be ncluded n the CARE-S prototype. Sub-ts 6.3 s scheduled for the thrd yer of the project.

11 CARE-S D16 report 2.2 Development of crter ctlogue The frst objectve s to compre vlble nformton on rehbltton technologes reltve to descrpton of the project(s) proposed. Informton on rehbltton technologes wll come drectly (or v the CARE-S rehbltton mnger) from the ctlogue estblshed n WP4 by CLABSA. The project descrpton s ten from vrous sources (WP2, WP3, WP5 nd end-user s dt bse) n pre-defned formt v the CARE-S rehbltton mnger Survey on current prctce nd vlble technologes In close co-operton wth the prtners from TU Brno nd CLABSA, survey mong the ssocted end-users ws ntted, sng for the documentton of two or three recently termnted rehbltton projects n ther networs (see Appendx 1). Ths ws crred out due to the followng resons: 1. To fnd out whch decson crter re/were used by our end-users for choosng rehbltted sewer sectons. 2. To obtn descrptons of ppled rehbltton technologes nd resons for ther selecton. 3. To evlute the costs of the used rehbltton technology. Summry of survey results Co-opertng end-users from 9 countres hve returned 11 flled questonnres provdng 27 descrbed projects (cse studes).

Rehbltton technologes Informton on the new technologes s comng from the ctlogue of rehbltton technologes (WP4), ncludng more thn 40 currently vlble rehbltton technologes (WP4_Rtchrt_v2.2.xls, posted on the BSCW server on the 6 th June 2003; the ltest verson of the RT chrt s consdered for the softwre). Hydrulc solutons for the rehbltton of the sewer networ must be ntegrted nto the ctlogue of rehbltton technologes. The optons for hydrulc rehbltton re the result of the hydrulc nlyss n WP3. Approprte descrptons of these rehbltton optons must be ntegrted nto the structure of the rehbltton technology ctlogue. 10

12 CARE-S D16 report In Tble 1, nformton stored n the rehbltton technology dtbse (WP4) s set n relton to requested nformton (ccordng to the lstng bove) for the descrpton of the projects. So fr, no cost nformton s vlble n the ctlogue of rehbltton technologes. Bsed on the fndngs documented n ppendx 2, Economc Evluton of Rehbltton Technologes, the ntegrton of cost-fctor mtrx s proposed for the pplcton of the dfferent rehbltton technologes under specfc envronmentl condtons. The cost-fctor mtrx wll be spredsheet developed by CLABSA under WP Cost evluton In generl, cost evluton should gve n economc justfcton of the rehbltton decson. Dfferent optons should be compred wth respect to the rto between costs nd servce lfe prolongton for repr, nd deprecton plus nterest for renovton nd replcement respectvely. Accordng to the three felds of nterest n the decson frmewor for sewer networ rehbltton, costng pproches wth dfferent levels of detl must be ncluded nto the decson process. The choce of the rght rehbltton technology requres very detled cost estmtes, potentlly lredy ten from dfferent prevous bds. For the prortston of projects, estmtes of men costs for dfferent rehbltton technologes under specfc condtons my be dequte. For the development of long-term strteges for nspecton nd rehbltton, unt costs for nspecton nd men costs for dfferent rehbltton technologes should be vlble. The most mportnt nfluencng fctors on the unt costs re, for exmple, dmeter, densty of servce connectons, lnd use bove nd under the ground (Fg.3). Fgure 3: Comprson of costs for lnng nd open-cut technology under specfc condtons (MUV-BW 2000) The cost comprson should comprse drect nd ndrect costs. Indrect costs of sewer rehbltton re mnly due to trffc devton nd busness nterruptons, or envronmentl mpcts, whch could be ether cptlsed by cost estmtes or drectly consdered, s s possble n the mult-crter decson support methodology mentoned n secton 3. 11

18 CARE-S D16 report 3 Mult-crter Evluton Methodology The objectve of mult-crter methodology for choosng the best rehbltton technology s to fnd trnstve 1 overll fnl order of fnte set of optons. Here, decson support method s sought whch selects the best rehbltton technology for sewer whch hs lredy been selected for rehbltton. Best, n ths context, could be nterpreted s the most cost-effectve, or most prctcl or lest dsruptve method, or some other such crteron. The set of optons, ll rehbltton optons ncluded n the rehbltton technology (RT) dt bse (WP4), must be compred wth respect to number of crter j, by clcultng the vlues e j for ech technology (Fgure 6). Fgure 6: Impct mtrx 3.1 Methods Mult-crter evluton methods cn be clssfed, ccordng to the prevlng weghng prncple, nto substtuton methods nd elmnton methods Substtuton methods A very populr mult-crter technque, the method of verge weghtng, belongs to the substtuton methods, lso referred to s ggregton or scorng models. Here, the bndwdth of crter wthn the mpct mtrx (rrow b n Fgure 6) s reduced. The overll rnng of optons s bult n three steps: 1. Trnsformton of ll crter nto unform scle (normlston) 2. Dstrbuton of weghts,.e. reltve mportnce or exchnge rtos between crter 3. Aggregton wth utlty functon for the fnl rnng order Usully, ggregton methods re ppled usng, n most cses, monetry expresson or dmensonless pont scle for the normlston. In generl, the normlston nd the defnton of the utlty functon re prepred by n expert, wheres the only ntercton between the decson-mer nd the decson procedure s the ssgnment of weghts. The problem of these methods s the prorty nd weghtng of the ndvdul crter, snce overrtng nd underrtng of certn spects s most lely to hppen (Strssert 1984, Vnce 1992). 1 A fnl order of set of optons s sd to be trnstve f t meets the trnstvty condton (e.g. f A > B nd B > C, then A > C). It s sd to be lner f there s no cycle of preference nvolved (.e. A > B > C > A s cyclc nd therefore not lner. See lso secton ) 17

19 CARE-S D16 report Elmnton Methods The prncple of elmnton methods s to reduce the bndwdth of optons wth rguments (rrow () n the mpct mtrx, see Fgure 6) by excludng unsutble optons. There s no fnl evluton but stepwse threshold settng t prtculr crter for elmntng undsred optons. One of the dvntges of elmnton methods s the possblty tht crter cn hve dfferent dmensons. A very populr, non-formlsed verson of elmnton technques s the verbl dscusson / structured ntervew. The selecton procedure conssts of three elementry steps: 1. Settng threshold vlue t crteron C 1 2. Observng the consequences t ll other crter 3. Confrmng (or rejectng) the elmnton threshold nd settng the next threshold t the next crteron The process s repeted untl bre-off lmt (e.g. gven budget) s reched. Wthn elmnton procedures, effect control nd resonng ntte process of blncng dvntges nd dsdvntges tht leds step-by-step to decson Blncng nd Rnng procedure The BRP (n Germny nown s FAR) presented by Strssert (1995) nd Köhl (1998) s new vrnt wthn the feld of sem-formlsed mult-crter decson support methodologes. Bsc fetures of the pproch re the prwse comprsons of optons, mxed scles nd the so-clled blncng prncple,.e. the blncng of vectors of dvntges nd dsdvntges (Strssert 2000: 1). For ny pr of optons the reltve dvntges nd dsdvntges re blnced nd, smultneously, the dfferent mportnce of the score s ten nto ccount. In chpter 3.2, the theoretcl frmewor of the pproch s brefly explned, followng Strssert (2000), who gves detled dervton nd descrpton of the method. The methodology hs been ppled n CARE-W for the evluton of rehbltton strteges (Herz 2002) ELECTRE procedure ELECTRE ("ELmnton Et Chox Trdusnt L RElté "= elmnton nd choce trnsltng relty) s the French pproch to mult-crter decson methodology, restrcted n the plnnng of engneerng nfrstructure projects, ts frst pprton beng n the sxtes. Most versons hve been developed by Bernrd Roy nd ssoctes (Roy 1993). The method mnpultes the crter nto concordnce nd, f evlutons re rcher thn ordnl rnngs, dscordnce mtrces. Optons re pr-wse judged. The concordnce set shows ll crter where n opton s preferred or equl to nother, whle the dscordnce set shows the reverse outrnng. Severl procedures re vlble for sortng, rnng, selectng. Contrry to the optmzton of n economc functon, the mult-crter nlyss s not formlzed mthemtclly ndeed. It uses models bult prtlly on nevtbly restrctve mthemtcl hypotheses nd prtlly on nformton collected by the decson-mer. The mn chrcterstc of the nlytcl mult-crter methods s to formlze the preprton of the decson by mprovng the trnsprency of the decson process nd by defnng nd clrfyng the decson-mer responsblty. In CARE-W WP3 report Decson support for nnul rehbltton progrmmes (Le Guffre et l. 2002), t s sortng procedure tht ws ppled: ELECTRE tr. Here we propose rnng procedure ELECTRE II: 18

20 CARE-S D16 report The objectve of ELECTRE II (Cf. Appendx 3.I: Detls of the method) s to rn optons, snce "best" untl "less good". The pproch used by ELECTRE II s bsed on: - concordnce nd dscordnce concepts (llowng to te nto ccount the collectve self-relnce of the decson-mer n fne wy), - two types of outrnng : strong nd we, - n outrnng lgorthm wth two smple orderng : drect nd reverse. An exmple of pplcton s presented n ppendx 3.II (Db, 2000) Concluson The substtuton methods offer logcl structure of procedures, whch determne unque result by mthemtcl opertons. However, methodologcl problems rse from the numercl scores nd weghts ssgned to ndvdul crter. They blur the contrbuton of ndvdul crter to the overll score by compenstng for smller nd lrger contrbutons from dfferent crter. However, there s no wy to blnce polluted wter wth clen r or destroyed nturl lndscpes wth quet vehcles. Another drwbc of ggregton procedures s ther lc of trnsprency n the decson process. Thus, pproches whch rely on ggregton re qute sutble for n evluton tht s bsed on crter whch re mesured on unform scle, e.g. n monetry terms, snce the blnce of costs nd benefts (or svngs), ppers to be rther ccurte. The dvntge of the concordnce nlyss (e.g. ELECTRE methods, Roy 1985) compred to scorng models s due to the comprson n prs of reltve dvntges nd dsdvntges of cnddte optons. There s no drect compenston of crter by utlty functon. However, number of model prmeters must be set/defned by the user (nmely ndces nd thresholds, nd the crter weghts). Mult-crter decson problems where optons must be compred by chrcterstcs wth mxed scles re more lely supported by elmnton procedures tht evde the blc-box pproch of non-trnsprent nterdependences determned by crter weghts, normlston functons nd utlty functon For the evluton of rehbltton technologes n CARE-S, the formlsed blncng nd rnng procedure (Strssert 1995) ws chosen nd wll be compred wth n Electre procedure. Both methods wll begn wth pre-elmnton step. 19

21 CARE-S D16 report 3.2 The Blncng nd Rnng Procedure (BRP) Ths secton gves n overvew on the methodologcl pproch of the blncng nd rnng procedure. In the next chpter 3.3, the pproch s llustrted by n exmple crred out for the end-user n Dresden Prelmnry order of optons The procedure strts wth the mpct mtrx (Fgure 4). Ech crteron C yelds n ndvdul order of optons P j by mens of e j. For e 11 > e 12 > e 13, the rnng order of crteron C 1 s P 1, P 2, P 3. In generl, the rnng order of optons P j wll dffer for ll crter C.

Then we cn wrte: C 1 : < P 1, P 2, P 3 >, nd smlrly for C 2 nd C 3, e.g. C 2 : < P 3, P 2, P 1 >, C 3 : < P 3, P 1, P 2 >, In n outrnng mtrx (Fgure 8), the number of pros nd cons re counted for ech opton. The mtrx n Fgure 8 shows tht opton P 1 s plced twce (.e. for two crter) before opton P 2, once before P 3, nd vce vers P 2 s plced once before opton P 1, nd P 3 s plced twce before opton P 1 (The tble must be red n rows).

Trngulrston s the systemtc re-orderng of optons such tht out of set of p = j! orders, the sum of the vlues bove the mn dgonl s mxmsed. A stuton where only zero vlues re below the mn dgonl corresponds to strong trnstve overll fnl order of optons, or totl order structure. Normlly, ths totl order structure of optons does not exst ntlly (Vnce 1992, Strssert 2000). The outrnng mtrx reltes to the mjorty rule of countng votes (1 crteron 1 vote). In the context of the blncng prncple, the ssumpton of mjorty rule must be gven up. The outrnng mtrx s used nsted s prelmnry order of optons whch s then subject to screenng nd blncng process. 20

22 CARE-S D16 report The blncng process Frstly, new tble s ntroduced. In n dvntges-dsdvntges tble the crter C re combned wth the result of the pr wse comprson of optons P j /P (Fgure 9). The column hedngs contn ll possble comprsons n prs. For n optons the number of comprsons s z = n*(n-1)/2. In our cse (n = 3), z = 3. P 1 /P 2 P 1 /P 3 P 2 /P 3 C 1 A P1C1 A P1C1 A P2C1 C 2 D P1C2 D P1C2 A P2C2 C 3 A P1C3 D P1C3 D P2C3 ΣA j ΣD j Fgure 9: Advntges-dsdvntges tble For ech comprson n prs, the scores of e j must be compred. The comprsons cn be mde ndependently from the crter s scles. They refer to qunttes, rnngs or frequences (crdnl, ordnl, nomnl scle). At the bottom of the tble two rows show the sum of dvntges ΣA j nd the sum of dsdvntges ΣD j by comprson. In the dvntges-dsdvntges tble, ech column represents seprte bnry decson problem: n the frst column, the comprson P 1 /P 2 of the two optons P 1 nd P 2, the queston s whether the two dvntges [ 1/2 A 1, 1/2 A 3 ] together re strctly superor (or not) to the dsdvntge 1/2 D 2. For Yes, P 1 s strctly superor to P 2. If respectvely the nswer s No, then P 2 s strctly superor to P 1. If the nswer to the queston: Are [A P1C1, A P1C3 ] strctly superor to D P1C2 s Yes, the dsdvntge 1/2 D 2 loses ts mportnce. Thus, ech comprson result s rted ccordng to boolen code (1,0), nd the results of ll comprsons cn be drwn to comptblty mtrx C (Fgure 10), nd f the comptblty mtrx s reordered, to the trngulr comptblty mtrx C T (Fgure 10b).

Then the number of comprsons n prs z s 10, 15, or more, respectvely. Irrespectve the number of crter, the determnton of the order reltons could become clumsy job. 21

23 CARE-S D16 report Not necessrly ll possble comprsons n prs nd correspondng blncng problems must be crred out. For 4 strteges, the number of comprsons would be 10. The number of possble orders of optons s p = n! = 1*2*3*4 = 24. These orders re: P 1, P 2, P 3, P 4 P 2, P 1, P 3, P 4 P 3, P 1, P 2, P 4 P 4, P 1, P 2, P 3 P 1, P 2, P 4, P 3 P 2, P 1, P 4, P 3 P 3, P 1, P 4, P 2 P 4, P 1, P 3, P 2 P 1, P 3, P 2, P 4 P 2, P 3, P 1, P 4 P 3, P 2, P 1, P 4 P 4, P 2, P 1, P 1 P 1, P 3, P 4, P 2 P 2, P 3, P 4, P 1 P 3, P 2, P 4, P 1 P 4, P 2, P 3, P 3 P 1, P 4, P 2, P 3 P 2, P 4, P 1, P 3 P 3, P 4, P 1, P 2 P 4, P 3, P 1, P 2 P 1, P 4, P 3, P 2 P 2, P 4, P 3, P 1 P 3, P 4, P 2, P 1 P 4, P 3, P 2, P 1 If n - 1 comprsons n prs re lredy executed, nd f ll optons re consdered n the blncng process, the remnng comprsons re gven mplctly. For exmple, f n - 1 = 3 comprsons yeld the three orders <P 1, P 2 >, <P 1, P 4 > nd <P 3, P 2 >, then from the 24 orders bove, n frst step 12 re elmnted (ll orders where P 1 s before P 2 ), n second step 8, nd n thrd step 3 orders re elmnted, respectvely. Hence, only one sngle order, <P 1, P 4, P 3, P 2 >, remns, tht s the fnl order of optons. Intrnstvtes occur when the blncng result of three comprsons would gve rnngs of the form: <P 1, P 2 >, <P 2, P 3 > nd <P 3, P 1 >,.e. the crculr relton P 1 > P 2 > P 3 > P 1. Strssert (1999) gves n nlytc proof tht the number of comprsons n prs could be reduced down to mnmum of n 1 comprsons, nd methodology how to vod ntrnstvtes n the fnl order. For the pre-elmnton of optons, nocout crter re ntroduced (e.g. pplcblty condtons) Solvng blncng problems The soluton of the blncng problem s the comprson of two optons wth respect to the set of dvntges gnst the set of dsdvntges, presented n the dvntgesdsdvntges tble. Tht s the nswer to the queston: Are the dvntges [ 1/2 A 1, 1/2 A 3 ] strctly superor to the dsdvntge 1/2 D 2? The number of crter n ech comprson wth n equl score s not decsve.
