Resource or Project Abstract

The ultimate goal of the SCEWA project is to:
support organizations and states agencies in providing early warning services.

Taking Environmental Protection Agencies as a domain of application, early warning services can be used to detect potential problems and accidents at engineering facilities such as water and waste water treatment plants, landfills and incinerators, in order to:

a) protect the personnel and the infrastructure in the facilities,
b) protect the environment,
c) inform and guide the personnel and the public accordingly, in case of "expected" adverse effects.

Given this ultimate goal, our research is focused on the development of methods and tools which are aimed at supporting the analysis, design, and development of early warning systems in engineering facilities and in critical infrastructures whose undisturbed operation is important for maintaining and improving the quality of our everyday life.

Supplementary Information About This Resource

In this section some supplementary information about this resource is outlined. Lineage information helps us to understand why this project was carried out, what policy or research requirements did it fulfil, etc. Lineage is important in understanding the rationale behind the carrying out of a project or the collection of a specific dataset etc. Links to web sites, applications, papers, etc are outlined to provide you with additional information or supplementary reading about the project or dataset

Lineage information about this project or dataset
This project emerged from the need to study and address one real-world problem and one research problem. The real-world problem stemmed from the need to be proactive to drinking water outbrakes and accidents withing drinking water treatment plants. The research problem originated
from the multiple facets, which the early warning sign concept receives in the relevant literature. This, in turn, created the need to: a) Study various opinions and perspectives on the early warning sign concept; b) Deliver novel approaches for the identification and justification of early warning signs to accidents; c) Design and develop tools that support organisations to be proactive to accidents.
Supplementary Information
The research team of this project used theories, methods, tools and techniques from a number of disciplines, such as systems theory and cybernetics, systems safety engineering and water purification approaches, artificial intelligence and domain specific modelling, cloud computing and multi-tenant databases.
