  1. As a user, I would like an automated method to allocate demands from meter points through lateral polyline to pipelines.

    I need a way to allocate demand from a meter (point meter) to the pipe (polyline) based on the lateral connection (polyline) at end points.

    Keep in mind:
    The features might not snap nor connect to pipes

  2. Time varying initial water age profile

    As a user it would be great to be able to add a time varying initial water age profile for transfer nodes. This would allow us to assess water age within the distribution network without having to combine models.

  3. Multi-thread simulations

    As a user I want to take advantage of multi-threaded CPUs to accelerate simulation intensive procedures (e.g. design calibration)

  4. use of custom buttons over multiple models

    At this time the custom action buttons are only relevant to the database. As a user who has a number of SQL toolboxes which I use across multiple models it would be highly beneficial if these custom action buttons could be set up in the software so they were applicable to all models opened

  5. Initial Tank Levels

    It would be great to be able to change the initial tank levels without having to create a whole new tank data set or putting a duplicate tank in the current data set. That way, the initial tank level condition can be changed for any given scenario without having to worry about changes in tank geometry across all scenarios. I believe WaterGEMS allows you to do this so it would be great to see this functionality in InfoWater. Perhaps initial tank levels could be placed under the Initial Node Status controls?

  6. As a user I would like to use Equivalent Persons (EP) for demand allocation.

    As a user and working within a Queensland council, Equivalent Persons (EP) are used for Local Government Infrastructure Plan (LGIP) triggers and growth planning. As the Census data is used create a demand model to define development staging horizon demands.
    Currently, WSPro can handle no. of properties (l/service/day) which uses an integer but can’t handle Equivalent Persons (EP) that needs decimal formatting.
    Our council believes a work-around is not suitable and creates complexity to demand allocation. WSPro should be able to handle different mechanisms for demand allocation to support all councils in Queensland and across Australia.

  7. Automatically Generate System Curves in Infoworks WS Pro

    In InfoWorks WS Pro - A way to automatically generate a system curve for a pump would be extremely useful.

  8. Can you include scenarios in WS pro environment similar to ICM

    ICM got the capability of the scenario modelling within the single network. H2Omap also had the same capability. Any possibility of having the same capability in WS pro?

  9. Extend flexibility in displaying information associated to HGL profiles

    As an InfoWater user I'd like to be able to add more information to my HGL profile, including nodal pressure, pipe diameter, flow, velocity, etc. I'd like see max/min level achieved throughout the simulation and have the ability to quickly add pipes to profile

  11. Have an indicator of the date/time of last successful model run

    Add a date/time stamp for the last successful model run somewhere in the run manager window would be helpful. Once a run has been completed, it is possible for a user to make changes to the model which would affect the hydraulics, yet the stoplight still shows green/yellow. It's possible for a user to THINK they have completed a run with the latest changes despite their not being incorporated.

  12. Node Name Generation Default

    In WS PRO it would be great to be able to set Node Name Generation format as a default for all networks in a database instead of having to enter it in every time I want to add nodes to a network

  13. As a planner, I want a single, integrated modelling platform to represent the water supply, sewerage and drainage (1D/2D) system.

    Melbourne Water has successfully completed a pilot modelling study using InfoWorks ICM to build a single integrated model to represent the water supply, sewerage and drainage system (including overland flooding) for a proposed redevelopment area (27,000 lots) in Melbourne.

    The study explored the capabilities of the software to model the urban water cycle. It has identified some significant advantages to an integrated modelling approach, however there are some key limitations of the software and hardware which limit its future use.

    We have published a joint paper that discussed the need and the concept and that can be make available upon…

  14. Smart meters

    Water utilities in Australia are installing smart meters in domestic and other non residential properties. Smart meters generates large data sets at each and every individual properties. Any thoughts to integrate those data in to the distribution network models?

  15. Combine simple and rule-based controls dialogs

    It is currently difficult to identify if a facility has a rule-based control. An improvement would be to access all the controls for a facility through the existing controls button. Clicking the controls button would open a single window with a tab for simple controls and a tab for logical controls.

  17. Run MSX in IWLive

    There is massive interest in having a water quality model that shows pH, Nitrification, chlorine levels, age, and tracing in real time. Currently this is only possible for water age (the basic EPANET WQ does not allow for the source tracing and quality modeling we need).

    Would be really nice to do these with IWLive with shorter duration Server runs (using the proceeding projection), as opposed to having to do 20 day runs in IWLive, export to InfoWater, then setup MSX there and run for another 20 days.

  18. clearer ArcGIS version info

    Would be good to see clearer version info on innovyze.force.com...
    The old site innovyze.com/updates was better viz "for ArcGIS 10.3-10.7"

  19. Head Units

    In WS Pro it would be useful to be able to set the units for head in m AD. This used to be an option in WS. It can be confusing for people starting in or not familiar with modelling to differentiate between pressure and head and having this option would really help.

  20. Set Area Codes- InfoWorks WS Pro

    Add an "Exclude Selection List" option to the "set Area Codes" tool in IW WS Pro so that you can exclude selected links from the area code trace.
