The paper describes the issues of optimization of calculations performed during the calibration of a computer model describing the flow in the water distribution network. Optimization concerns the efficiency of these calculations which means not only the volume and speed of calculations, but above all, the optimal use of the measurements made during calibration to obtain the best, i.e. the most real value of the searched parameters/characteristics of the system components. The paper includes a

This tool is based on genetic. ..algorithm.
