User guide for ESY / Web-HIPRE with RODOS PV6

ESY-HIPRE is the evaluation subsystem of the RODOS decision support system for off-site nuclear emergency management. ESY-HIPRE aims at providing transparency in the decision making process.

The ESY-HIPRE package of the RODOS system consists of the ESY pre-processor and Web-HIPRE, both of which components that can also be independently used. The ESY pre-processor is the latest version of the evaluation system of RODOS. It enables the user to select the data for Web-HIPRE. It will also launch the old version of the Heresy, now superseded by Web-HIPRE. Web-HIPRE is a generic Java-based multi-attribute evaluation software adapted for and integrated into the RODOS system.

An Explanation Module, based on the Fine Expert System (FES) (K.N. Papamichail and S. French), was integrated into the evaluation software Web-HIPRE in order to enhance the understanding of the evaluation process and thus contributing to the direct involvement of the decision makers. Aiming at increasing the confidence of decision makers in the results of the system, the Explanation Module seeks to improve the acceptability of the whole system.

A description of how each of these components work is given together with information on how they are linked to each other as well as with other RODOS modules. Detailed explanations and links to training material are given for Web-HIPRE since this is new software for the RODOS users.
