Level of management

During the inventory phase, the level of management that will or can be provided by the decisionmaker must be assessed. An AWMS must be manageable by the decisionmaker. Some require intensive levels of management and good record keeping ability. Composting and anaerobic digesters are in this category. When a change in the waste handling system is being considered, it is necessary to evaluate any management changes that the desired system might present. For example, if a dairy farmer wants to switch from a solid to a slurry or liquid waste handling system, a modification in the amount and type of bedding used and equipment needed will most likely be necessary.

If possible, the planner and decisionmaker should visit several operational sites that have waste handling systems similar to those being considered.
