PROGEA designs and implements Decision Support Systems for planning and management of water resources based on the proprietary software WATERSTRATEGYMAN DSS and PRODAM DSS; both of them have been developed in collaboration with the University of Bologna, under the guide of Prof. Ezio Todini.
WATERSTRATEGYMAN DSS is a comprehensive Decision Support System for the development of sustainable water management strategies and water resources planning in the framework of the European Directive 2000/60
PRODAM DSS is a Decision Support System for the management of dams and artificial lakes. It was originally developed to manage water release from the Como lake, pursuing the optimal compromise between long-term exploitation of lake water and management of management of short term events like floods.

WATERSTRATEGYMAN DSS is based on a methodology for the integrated analysis of environmental and socio-economic aspects of water resources management. It uses a computer system constituted by mathematical models, database, Geographic Information System (GIS) and application software.
PROGEA works together with end user's technical staff to develop the most suitable solution. Implementation of WATERSTRATEGYMAN DSS includes the following activities:
