Innovyze Releases InfoWorks WS Generation V16.0
Broomfield, Colo., Feb. 2, 2016 — Innovyze, a leading global innovator of business analytics software and technologies for smart wet infrastructure, today announced the release of InfoWorks WS V16.0, enhanced with new benefits and valuable modeling capabilities that make it easier for users to arrive at fast, accurate solutions and enhance their productivity.
Whether configured as a component of a corporate modeling solution or a stand-alone desktop application, InfoWorks WS combines a fast relational database, powerful hydraulic computational engine and comprehensive spatial analysis tools to create a single, flexible smart water network modeling application that excels in both steady-state and extended period dynamic simulations.
InfoWorks WS uses an enhanced version of the WesNet engine, renowned for its computational speed and ability to cope with large and complex networks. A full range of simulation capabilities is standard, including dynamic water quality and sediment modeling, fire flow assessment, pipe criticality analysis, demand area and leakage analysis, energy use and cost calculations, and auto-calibration of networks. User Programmable Control (UPC) allows modelers to optimize water network operating regimes by changing state of control elements based on the status of sensors.
The latest version dramatically enhances speed, efficiency and usability — providing users with revolutionary workflows and unique capabilities. The flushing scheduler now allows users to specify shear stress as a flushing criterion (in addition to velocity) as well as the elapsed time between flushing operations. Options have also been added for direct SCADAWatch connectivity, allowing easier calibration and setup of demand patterns; application of SQL expression themes to networks without results; and special color-coding of symbols based on control or result status. These important capabilities deliver superior ease of use and productivity, providing the user with extreme flexibility within project modeling workflows.
