This work presents a web-based tool for predicting and evaluating sustainability with a case study in the framework of water delivery service project (WDSP). A decision support model is built, based on Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA) and afterward implemented in Java EE platform for predicting and evaluating on-line the sustainability of WDSPs. An additive value function based assignment model is used to sort a WDSP to one of the ordered categories corresponding to various level of sustainability. The model allows to aggregate socioeconomic, technical, technological and environmental aspects in term of their impact on the sustainability. Knowing the sustainability level of a WDSP can serve as a basis for undertaking an intervention.
