Abstract

A comprehensive review of the literature reveals that there is, today, an extensive body of work referring to the problem of finding the least cost design of water distribution networks. However, unfortunately, these sophisticated models are not proposed with user-friendly interfaces to facilitate communication with the different practitioners involved in solving this kind of problem. Therefore, suitable packages are needed to overcome the lack of acceptance of the optimization models existing nowad
