  2. Add Date Properties to Scenario Objects (Ruby)

    This would add a date_created or date_last_committed field to Scenario Objects in the WSApplication.current_network.

    It could be used to delete (or archive) old scenarios.

    For example, this would allow users to write a ruby script that can loop through and delete any scenarios greater than 3 years old.

  3. Get the elapsed time of the simulation in ICM Exchange

    It is not possible to get the information of the Job Control window with the current ICM Exchange, but it would be very useful to be able to create a dashboard using ICM Exchange to manage simulations and coordinators.

  6. Show data errors

    Mike + added a function called "show data errors" in its new product in 2021, which can display objects that lack necessary field information and generate a table. This function can improve the ability of model engineers to deal with model errors more quickly. I hope ICM can add this function

  7. Support for overlapping roughness zones in 2D

    I have a model that has masses of roughness polygons. invariably some of these overlap. I also have overlapping roughness zones where I have 'donut' features. My life would be SO much easier if meshing didn't fail when the roughness zones overlap. Can we p[ease have the restriction on these relaxed? If we have to specify a priority then that would be acceptable. It doesn't seem to be a problem with HEC-RAS or TUFLOW.... :-)

  8. SQL in run dialog box to select gauged objects

    Using SQL to select gauged objects would allow their dynamic selection based on object properties, not just from a static list. This is an issue when testing scenarios if field names are added/changed. It is further compounded by selection lists becoming read-only after being used in a simulation, prompting a proliferation of duplicate selection list objects to update the list.

  9. Run SQL Query across multiple simulation results

    Similar to how ICM lets me run a SQL query across multiple networks, I want to use SQL to summarize results in a custom way across multiple simulation results objects.

    Ideally they could be joined in one table similar to the way one can query from sim.depnode and sim2.depnode when an alternate results is applied to the map. But simply running a query on each simulation in isolation would be helpful as well

  10. Speed up the creation/amending of ICMTs

    Creating or amending ICMTs is slow, especially if they contain ground models. Even deleting or creating new 'folder' items in ICMTs is slow. Speeding this process up would increase productivity.

  12. Integrate a Template option for setting out run group in Infoworks ICM

    I am working on project which includes 50 models. where we have to give runs for different return periods and durations for each model. It is a time taking process, which unnecessarily create chances of error by creating run setup every time. is it possible to include a run set up template, which can be changed as per the user requirement and saved for the further use.?

  14. Restrict use of a simulation server to specific users - to give priority to certain workflows

    In a workgroup setting with ICM with several simulation servers it is possible to limit a named group of simulation servers (a "group" can be just one server) for use with specific ICM model databases.

    We would like to be able to limit use of a server group to specific users who will be working on many databases over a period of time. We don't want to restrict other users from running models in these databases; they can run on other servers.

  15. Convergence Errors be resolved automatically while the model is simulated

    Sometime a TSR running for few weeks throws up convergence hence these sims need to be rerun with shorter timestep which is both inefficient and a lot of time is wasted. It would be good if somehow the simulations dialog allowed to run the model with Max and Min timestep so that when it encounters convergence there after the model runs with shorter timestep. (I understand the model does timestep halving but even then it fails to converge)

    IN DISCUSSION  ·  pascal.lang responded

    Hello,

    Thank you for this, there is already a mechanism available for achieving something very similar to this. If you have a network and then go to the simulation parameters for this network via Model > Model parameters > Simulation parameters then within these there is an entry for “Max number of timestep halvings”. Depending on the timestep in the run dialog and the entry in the simulation parameters here you will be able to determine the minimum computational timestep that the engine goes to before failing a simulation.

    Hope this helps.

  16. Set up runs more efficiently

    Is there a matrix type tool in ICM that allows you to easily set up complicated run set ups? i.e. for this 1 Model Network, these runs with use these rainfall files, inflow files, WWG, etc are needed.

    Model Name
    Base Model

    Rainfall Inflow WWG Tradeflows
    M5-30 Inf-M5-30 WWG1 Trade1
    M5-240 Inf-M5-240 WWG1 Trade1
    M5-960 Inf-M5-960 WWG1 Trade1
    M10-30 Inf-M10-30 WWG1 Trade1
    M10-240 Inf-M10-240 WWG1 Trade1
    M10-960Inf-M10-960 WWG1 Trade1

    With same timesteps and 2D parameters?

  17. Python scripting API for ICM

    Our team uses Python scripting extensively for data analysis and manipulation, while Ruby is foreign to us.
    Please provide scripting support for Python for model manipulation and analysis.

  19. Additional keyboard shortcuts

    Keyboard shortcuts can really help speed up processes and workflows in InfoWorks ICM but some of the menu options do not yet have these. Would it be possible to add the missing keyboard shortcuts, specifically for repeatable tasks such as updating objects from ground models?

  20. Speed up interfaces with 2D zones with millions of elements (make it a multicore process)

    The interface for large 1D-2D models is very slow. While moving through the geoplan every time it takes about ten seconds to load and show the location. We noticed that in this time only 1 of the 32 CPU is used for 100%. We tried 2 complete different videocards (Quadro K2000 vs Quadro M6000 24GB) but that did not make any difference (both slow). The interface/geoplan works fine when we do not display the 2D zone. We tried lot of things that were suggested by your supportdesk, but it seems like that this is something that will only really improve…
