USERMANUAL WAPRO - A model to calculate projections of waterconsumption

GEBRUIKERSDOCUMENTATIE WAPRO - Een model voor het maken van waterverbruiksprognoses


In this report a description is given of WAPRO, a computermodel to calculate projections of water consumption. By applying economic, demographic and technological scenario's, the future water demand of certain sectors can be calculated with WAPRO. It's also possible to explore the effects of certain measures to reduce the water consumption. These measures can easily be switched on and off with WAPRO. WAPRO has been made for personal computers (IBM-compatible) under the MS-DOS operating system, with a hard disk and can be easily installed from a floppy disk. The user of WAPRO has the possibility to insert his own measures in the model and he can choose which measures must be switched on (or off) in a calculation. This report describes how to install WAPRO on a hard disk and how it is used. Furthermore the structure of the model is discussed and which data must be inserted in the various screens. Users who are interested in the more technical data-structure and file-organization and -structure of WAPRO, can read the last chapter of the appendix.
