[en] Assessing the viability of a public infrastructure includes economic, technical and environmental aspects; however, on many occasions, the social aspects are not always adequately considered. This article proposes a procedure to estimate the social sustainability of infrastructure projects under conditions of uncertainty, based on a multicriteria deterministic method. The variability of the method inputs is contributed by the decision-makers. Uncertain inputs are treated through uniform and beta PERT distributions. The Monte Carlo method is used to propagate uncertainty in the method. A case study of a road infrastructure improvement in El Salvador is used to illustrate this treatment. The main results determine the variability of the short and long-term social improvement indices by infrastructure and the probability of the position in the prioritization of the alternatives. The proposed mechanism improves the reliability of the decision making early in infrastructure projects, taking their social contribution into account. The results can complement environmental and economic sustainability assessments. - Highlights: •Estimate the social sustainability of infrastructure projects under conditions of uncertainty •The method uses multicriteria and Monte Carlo techniques and beta PERT distributions •Determines variability of the short and long term social improvement •Determines probability in the prioritization of alternatives •Improves reliability of decision making considering the social contribution
[en] The paper in which you describe the implementation process of infrastructure for radiation safety in the Health Ministry. The problems during the process of training of the personnel and the application of a non agreed legislation to the international norms (BSS 115). The elaboration of a Regulation of protection and radiological security that gives necessary to the legal force for the control and controls it to the different ones you practice and applications, the diffusion of the culture of the security mainly in the medic applications. The importance of working framed in a project model of which the technic and technological aid is obtained necessary, like the experience that other regulating authorities have compiled in the time.
