Best Out of Waste: A Prototype Software Solution Using MATLAB -GUI
In the context of “Swachh Sarvekshan”, the concept of waste management plays a very significant role in
achieving the vision and mission of “Swachh Bharat Abhiyan”, the clean mission of India. Waste, on one hand can become a
factor undesirable, on the other and the most important angle, can contribute significantly to the national income as it has the
potential to become a great source of income if put to use through recycling and reusing. The present research paper focusing
on domestic waste, highlights the software solution that was designed using MATLAB-GUI for using in accounting for
revenues or losses generated during the administration of waste management, particularly at municipality level. Considering
nine modules with nine parameters as one for each module, the software formulated assists in calculation of revenues
generated out of recycled and reused waste, in a flash of a moment. The software will also provide a solution for re-planning
the process of re-usage of waste, if any discrepancy is found between the budget amount and the actual costs incurred. The
cumbersome managerial issues hitherto involved in various administrative processes for waste management find easy
electronic solution in the software designed in the current research paper.
