The IWA World Water Congress & Exhibition 2014 is the water industry's largest and most representative event at the global scale. This year, WWC will take place in Lisbon, Portugal, September 21-26th.
The first part of the session will be dedicated to an overview of the software, the launch of the first full-fledged version (v1.0) and an update on the latest developments made available. The second half of the session will be dedicated to presenting and discussing a roadmap for the R&D, methods and software that make up the AWARE-P ecosystem.
The session is targeted at the software's user base and all industry professionals interested in finding out more about the AWARE-P methodology and software. With more than 1000 users around the world, the software has had significant acceptance in dozens of industry and R&D professionals and organizations, who have tested it and used it on their IAM projects, contributing with bug reports, ideas and suggestions.
The IAM approach supported by the AWARE-P software and methods is a water infrastructure management process that addresses the need for a fundamental plan-do-check-act cycle at the utility’s various decisional levels – strategic, tactical, operational. It is an innovative, inclusive methodology that materializes 2 decades of leading-edge R&D, building upon simplicity and the integration of existing asset management practice. AWARE-P is the recent winner of both the 2014 Mulheim Water Award and IWA’s Europe & West Asia 2014 Project Innovation Awards (Planning).
