  2. TSDBs to produce logs of SQL queries

    This is important to assist troubleshooting issues related with TSDB performance during implementation and maintenance of TSDBs. The log should include the exact queries produced by their streams when data is updated.

  3. More gems available ICM Exchange that allow for a better user interface (shoes, tk, RubyFX, etc.)

    I would like more gems to be available within ICM Exchange that allow for a better end-user experience with ICM Exchange (not command line prompts). The specific gems I would reccomend are shoes, tk, and RubyFX - or any other gems that have applications for user interface

  4. Better performance and functionalities of the recycle bin

    In a workgroup database, the Recycle Bin today is more a nuisance than a useful feature. When there are too many items in it, it can delay the connection to the database considerably or even make it impossible to connect. The functionalities for selectively restoring or removing items are also very poor. E.g. you cannot select on the user who deleted items, or find the original path in the database where items were deleted from. The only real use is when you accidentally delete something and restore it immediately, but then maybe a personalised recycle bin which only exists during…

  5. RTC Debugging Interface and Support

    It would be really useful to have a debugging module for the RTC components in InfoWorks ICM so that one can go step by step through a simulation to display in simulation RTC values-things like variable values (e.g. timers), range/logic values, active/deactivate rules and so on to make isolating RTC schemes simpler. This would be kind of like a debugging module for computer programming in languages such as VBA or C++ or perhaps another grid view. I also find that there are a lot of RTC concepts that we find our by trial and error and it would be useful…

  6. Export Max Flood Contours - Elevation

    It would add value to ICM if users could export the Maximum Flood Contours as Elevations in the same way that we can for Depth. This would be particularly useful as currently Depth is the only property that be be exported as an ASCII Grid file.

    It appears that the contour intervals used in the export is taken from the "Flood" theme. Perhaps under "Map Type" there could be options to add "Flood Elevation - Filled/Show Layers/Transparent/etc" and hence with a Flood Elevation map type chosen the Max Flood Contours could be exported as elevations.

  7. bottom opening

    Beside an upstanding vertical orrifice, it would be practical to be able to implement horizontal 'bottom holes' from one node to an underlaying node. e.g when a ditch can drain to an underlying conduit by means of a bottom opening. This might be a more straight forward implementation then the weir circumference workround method which is now often used. if possible both circular and rectangular.

  8. Infoworks ICM- Sewage Temperature Modelling and Heat Losses

    The following features should be added to Infoworks ICM for modelling temperature impacts for Heat extraction or heat insertion projects:
    - Sewage temperature to be added in WWG file as a pollutograph parameter and can also be defined in a diurnal pattern to consider trade temperature profiles
    - I&I temperatures can be extra entered
    - Linear heat losses can be defined for standard pipe configurations towards an equilibrium temperature
    - Temperature mixing at each node, based on WQ simulation engine
    - Heat extraction or insertion possible at any model node

  9. Run a SQL Query that requires sim and sim2 to be active from ICM Exchange

    I would like to run a SQL query from ICM Exchange that requires two simulations to be active. I would like to be able to call multiple simulations simultaneously from Exchange.

  10. 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.

  11. Calculating volume storage on river reaches

    In the application of ICM, we often count the regulation volume of river channels.But at the moment we can only calculatethe total available volume of channels/river reaches between two cross sections by using length and cross sectional areas.If the number of river sections is very large in the model,it will take a lot of time and effort to accomplish this work. It would be great to have the tool to calculate volume storage on river reaches automatically.

  12. 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.

  13. Assign InfoWorks Agent Groups by hostname prefix or wildcard

    The InfoWorks Agent coordinator settings allow simulation machines to be grouped by hostname. However, when using Azure virtual machine scale sets (and likely other similar auto scaling cloud environments) a preconfigured hostname includes an incremental suffix (00001, 0000A...FFFFF) that cannot be predetermined. It would be useful if it was possible to assign machines to groups using just the initial characters of the hostname (without the suffix) or by using a wildcard.

  14. As a user I need to represent and optimise for throttled discharge from subcatchments to node or conduit objects

    Many cities are limiting maximum stormwater dicharge to drainage networks.
    ICM should include more efficient modelling regarding
    - Limiting stormwater flows from subcatchments via throttle requirement (e.g. 0-10 l/s*ha subcatchment), suggesting a new subcatchment data field.
    - And quickly analyse how much stormwater (e.g. 10 m³ ) needs to be managed/retained on each subscatchment site via SUDS such as greenroofs, swales, etc. in order to meet and optimise throttle requirements.

  15. Updating a model in ICM Live is overly complicated and currently results in loss of data from previously ran simulations

    The current process to update a model in ICM live is overly complicated and is currently not simple to grasp. This currently requires the removal of all runs from a particular manifest before you can remove and update the model being used. A simpler way to do this would be beneficial, including a methodology which does not require the removal of earlier simulations as this is not immediately obvious that this is a requirement . Ideally this process should be made easier in future releases. Thanks

  16. Statistic Report Batch Processing

    As a use the ability to 'schedule' statistical reports would be extremely useful. currently if i'm generating a spill report on several overflows for a 10yr TSR series this can take several hours. The process effectively locks the software and prevents any other operation from been undertaken. This is highly inefficient and costly especially when optioneering if several iterations are needed. Shorter TSR's can be run in this case however even a year with several CSO's can take 20-30mins.

  18. Selection List Subtraction

    I was looking for a way to subtract one selection list from another. In other words, we would like to remove overlaps between selection sets but it seems there is no way to do that easily in ICM.

    It is highly recommended to include this feature for future versions as competitors such as Bentley SewerGEMS have already had this for years now.

  19. Allow user to set number format in ICM grid windows

    It would be great if a user could set number formats in InfoWorks ICM grid windows. For example, we are calibrating a large diameter pipeline by adjusting Manning's n values. We are using 5 digits after the decimal place, but ICM only shows 4 digits. When I copy from the grid, it only copies 4 digits after the decimal. So I have to use a csv export to see the actual values. Or at least set Manning's n values to 5 digits after the decimal place.
