A technique for numerically evaluating pumping system effectiveness on the basis of statistical analysis is presented. The technique is applied to a hypothetical substitution of stainless pump wear rings for bronze to find if the probable increase in quantity of water delivered annually compares favorably with the operational cost difference between the materials. Other applications for this decision-making device are briefly described.
