Abstract
(EN)
Control method for use in the evaluation of faults in water distribution, the method comprising the steps of: (a) receiving a fault notification; (b) determining from the fault notification a series of potential causes of the notified fault; (c) determining, for each potential cause, an impact evaluation; (d) aggregating the impact evaluations for each potential cause to derive an importance indication for the notified fault.
