    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract To improve the quality of multidisciplinary model-based water management studies and provide guidance on best practices, a user-friendly guidance and quality assurance knowledge-based system has been built within the EU funded HarmoniQuA project. The knowledge base system provides experts and experienced persons in model-based water management studies a web-based software tool for developing knowledge base for processes related to managing model-based water management studies. The knowledge base is used in the Modelling Support Tool, a tool developed within the HarmoniQuA project, to provide multidisciplinary team members targeted and actionable information. MoST also uses the knowledge base as a process specification in managing model-based study projects. In the HarmoniQuA project, quality assurance procedures has been developed with the help of this system and currently we are extending our KBS to develop a water stress mitigation process for the EU funded AquaStress project. The knowledge base system is based on ontological formalisation that consists of knowledge models for specifying process definitions and knowledge models for the execution of the process. This paper focuses on the knowledge models and a web-based software system we developed to edit and manage the knowledge base. The knowledge models are developed by a team of experts and experienced persons in model-based water management studies and a team of knowledge and software engineers. In a separate paper, we look at how these knowledge models are used in managing multidisciplinary model-based water management projects
