ProDec – Emergency Procedure Based on Fuzzy Notions for Catchment Management
The paper describes the ProDec system serving to develop and run decision procedures based upon IF…THEN rules. The system encompasses the editing, testing, and running functions. The key feature consists in the use of fuzzy values of the conditioning parameters. These fuzzy values are defined in the development and editing stage and can be easily referred to in the testing and use stages through natural language expressions. In this manner the inherent uncertainty associated with virtually all decision situations is captured and communication with the procedure is facilitated. The use of ProDec for river catchment emergency management purposes is illustrated.
