  1. Multi-thread simulations

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

  2. 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?

  3. 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.

  4. Allow Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V in InfoWater Pro

    I could always copy and paste attributes via simple keyboard commands (Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V) in classic InfoWater, but can no longer do that in InfoWater Pro. You can right click and select "Copy" or "Paste", but that takes longer. Bring back keyboard commands.

  5. Edit Pump and Valve Curves in IWLive

    IWLive is the perfect platform to examine how well valve and pump curves are simulating the actual behavior under a wide range of system conditions. If these could be modified in an incident run, it would save lots of time going back to WS to modify them.

  6. Add new run groups and move existing runs to these

    I’ve currently got one very big run group which should’ve really been split into several different ones.
    Is there a way to move around runs? In the explorer there’s only really the option to duplicate.

  7. 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

  8. 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…

  9. Add ability to rename datasets, patterns, queries, etc


    1. Allow the "Change ID" tool to rename datasets, patterns, queries, etc.

    2. Make the "Change ID" window wider or resizeable to fit longer IDs.

  10. allow multiple selection lists in a shutdown simulation

    I am currently working on a long-term planning of our pipeline renovation projects. I need to determine which projects can be executed simultaneously. My approach at this time is to create a selection list of all the pipes that would be taken out of order for the different projects I would like to combine. Each new combination of projects requires me to create a new selection list and reselect all the pipes affected by these projects.

    It would be easier for me if I could create separate selection lists for the affected pipes for each individual project, and then select…

  11. Be able to change the background colour

    In InfoWorks the background colour for the GeoPlan is white - it would be beneficial to change this colour to the users choice to make particular features stand-out more clearly in the GeoPlan view

  12. Smarter UDF Flush Sequence Manager Operations tab selection tools

    When using the UDF Flush Sequence Manager Operations tab [Close >], [Open >], or [Remove >] selection tools, I would like to receive the error "WARNING: Node ### is not in the Selection Set 'VALVES'" less often.

    Currently you must zoom in and only select the node you wish to change the state of; any other nodes included in the selection that are not in the relevant selection set will cause this error to pop up.

    When using [Close >], the tool should only recognize valves whose current state is set to Open, and should close all selected valves, ignoring…

  13. InfoWater SA to be capable of managing transparency in the background layers

    Not having the capability in InfoWater SA to manage background information as used to be possible with H2OMap affect directly the efficiency of the product itself.

  14. Option of splitting pipes/Polygons in InfoWorks WS Pro

    Like the option available to split the polygons, if there is an option available that would be good.

    If we are able to automatically split the pipe into many segments automatically using an automated option like the feature available in ICM to generate river cross sections, that would be helpful especially where we have long sections of pipes where it would be difficult to replicate ground level variations.

  15. Boundary trace toolbar shortcut

    I often use the boundary trace tool to understand the extent of a DMA/PMA. Currently, we have to go to Geoplan -> Tracing Tools -> Boundary Trace, and it would be a lot easier if it was available as a toolbar shortcut.

  16. Improvements to custom DB table fields


    1. Ability to modify the length of custom fields in the DB tables after they have been created. This is particularly a problem when you create a text field, but realize later it is too short. Another option would be to make the default text length 250 characters rather than 20.

    2. Better manager for custom fields. The user should be able to create a field once and choose which information DB tables to add it to. See example at link. https://ibb.co/CbFKnn2

  17. Specify number of demands

    I almost never need to use all 10 demand fields in InfoWater. The ability to specify the number of demand fields needed would save space in the demand DB table and in the Model Explorer window and make viewing these windows easier.

  18. Enhance the performance of domains in InfoWater Pro

    There is no reason an ArcGIS selection should work 5-50x faster than using domain tools in InfoWater. ArcGIS made great enhancements to ArcGIS Pro and utilizing a 64-bit environment. InfoWater could be much improved from a performance perspective

  19. Zoom-dependent visibility of flow direction arrows

    Flow direction arrows slow down the display significantly when zooming out on a large model. It would be useful to specify the scale at which they will be shown, similar to ArcMap layers.

  20. Reset the active facilities query without changing scenarios

    When scenarios use a query set to define the active facilities, it would be useful to be able to re-run the query and update the active/inactive facilities without changing scenarios. Changing scenarios can be very slow for large models.
