  1. Re-order objects

    Can it be possible to re-order objects within an InfoWorks ICM model Group. As objects can get added or superseded over time. So to aid model audits and ease of use, it would be really beneficial to have an option to re-order. Thanks

  2. As a user i want to see 'failed' simulations within the Results Management Window rather than 'completed' status

    When a sim completes as status Incomplete the sim icon changes to red and the Job control window states sim status Incomplete. However, in the Results Management window the sim status is ‘Complete’!

    For consistency and user friendliness; Please can you fix to reflect the status Incomplete? This change will make re-running sims so much easier and save end users not having to delve into IDs to work out which sim need investigation.

  3. As a user I want to be able to adjust dry weather flow diurnal profiles easily to account for day light savings

    Diurnal wastewater and tradewaste profiles shift over the course of the year due to day light saving time adjustments. I would like to see ICM include the ability to phase shift the diurnal patterns to account for DLS. I believe this adjustment would be best placed in the "monthly calibration" tab where in addition to the scaling "factor' there is also a time adjustment factor

  4. Guidance (including examples) and solver assumptions in ICM help

    Could the ICM help be refreshed/updated and include more examples and/or details of the physics / assumptions / settings used by the simulation solver? Some examples below
    - Orifice control – Technical paper “Orifices” (June 2005) is not available anymore. Could this be updated and re-introduced as it was valuable guidance
    - Head / discharge curves – “The overall relationship between discharge and head in both directions is represented as a data table of up to 15 discharge values at head values equally spaced by a specified increment.” It seems that more than 15 values can be used and not…

  5. Need additional Timestep function for "Between episodes" of "Simulation runoff only"

    It needs creating a new Timestep function in ICM Run window that allows setting up timestep for "Simulation runoff only" for the "Between episodes" separately with "Timestep (s)" in Run window. This new function saves a lot of running time when the model can simulate the runoff only with larger time step using the "Episode Collection"

  6. Scenario assigned 'official' ID numbers within software

    I would like for scenario names to be prefixed with a built-in ID number, in the same way that model commits have official version numbers, and wastewater and trade waste profiles have ID numbers. ICM clearly tracks ID numbers behind the scenes, since it is able to keep the scenarios in the same order (rather than sorting them alphabetically or similar).

    When specifying exactly which 'model' was used to produce a set of simulation results, it is necessary to specify network ID, version ID and scenario ID - so it would be helpful to be able to just point to…

  7. compatibility with WMTS servers

    Compatibility with WMTS servers for the GIS layer control would be very urgent. Right now a lot of data is only to project from WMTS servers.

  8. Commit history for scenarios

    Commit history for scenarios
    Show an extra column in the commit history window to indicate how many scenarios exist in this version of the network. Ideally, there would be a button or column through which you can see the names of the scenarios for this network version.

  10. Add Data Sets to InfoWorks

    Add Data Sets to InfoWorks as one can do in InfoSWMM. Helpful when clients want to model alternatives scenarios and make last minute changes.

  12. Inflow files with different timesteps or ability to import multiple inflow files to a Run file.

    For inflow files, sometimes you have 15-min data for one gauge, and 5-min data for another location, and you want to import them both to the model. It would be helpful to be able to import inflow files with different timesteps for the same date range, so you don't have to manipulate data outside of ICM in excel. Or, allowing the ability to import multiple inflow files to the same run.

  13. Built-in mapping capabilities, like PCSWMM and Civil 3D have

    Other software has built-in background mapping capabilities for free, using OpenStreetMaps or Bing satellite/hybrid road maps for georeferenced models. The current capability of supporting WMS servers falls way too short and there are no free options available anymore.

    This should have been included ages ago.

  14. Un-ticking All Objects under ICM Properties and Themes

    The "Properties and Themes" provides the option to Display certain model Object Layers (i.e. Node, Conduit, 2D Zone, etc.). It is a very long list of about 50 layers.

    It would be helpful if there is an option to Tick (or Un-Tick) all layers at once.

  15. Spread automatic inserted vertices in Bank Lines equally

    The "Update from ground model" provides the option to “Insert vertices on lines to give maximum spacing of x m”. This is very useful for creating Bank Line vertices at small intervals. It would be helpful if those inserted vertices are spread equally over the Bank Line section.

    At the moment new vertices are created at the specified interval (e.g. 10m), which often results in new vertices created very close to the existing downstream Cross-section end vertices. This can result in tiny internal triangles during meshing.

    Spreading out the inserted vertices at equal distance over the Bank Line will provide…

  16. ICM - HEC-22 Combination Inlet for continuous grade inlets

    Currently ICM has 6 FWHA Gully Inlet types:
    ContCo Continuous Curb Opening
    ContG Continuous Grate
    SagC Sag Combination
    SagCO Sag Curb Opening
    SagG Sag Grate and
    UPC Grate

    A commonly used Inlet type (particularly in QLD Australia) that is missing from this list is the combination (curb opening + grate) on a continuous grade.

    Section 4.4.4.4. in the HEC-22 manual discuss the capacity of these inlets where the curb opening precedes the grate in the direction of flow. It would be particularly useful to include this option in ICM rather than assuming a grate only inlet type or having to…

  20. Innovyze rewiewing & acting upon the suggestions in this forum more quickly

    I would like Innovyze (Autodesk)to provide more resources to actively review the great suggestions in this this forum. However it seems that months and even years go past and the suggestions just sit there showing as received.
