Abstract

In the research presented in this paper household case studies were considered. Main objective of this research is to investigate models and algorithms for alternative approaches to current utility–service provision. This paper is focused on case studies that consider standard solutions to utility–service provision problems and propose improvements to these solutions. Results are obtained using a simulation system developed in C#. The simulation system evaluates feasibility of proposed candidate solution (so-called transformation graphs) that can be created manually or generated automatically. The simulation system uses data stored in an XML database implemented using eXist-db.
