Pennsylvania, USA, 30 August 2006: Bentley Systems, Incorporated announced on August 30 the commercial release of WaterGEMS V8 XM Edition, a water distribution modeling solution to unify modeling across MicroStation, ArcGIS, AutoCAD, and stand-alone platforms.
The 2006 winner of the AWWA People’s Choice Award as the most useful new product, WaterGEMS V8 XM goes beyond GIS-centric products, providing a true data-centric solution. This means that water utilities and consulting firms can now leverage the benefits of ArcGIS integration without sacrificing interoperability with the AutoCAD, MicroStation, and stand-alone platforms.
WaterGEMS V8 XM Edition extends every piece of functionality across all the included CAD, GIS, and stand-alone platforms. For example, GIS users can now exercise total control over engineering units directly within ArcGIS’s attribute tables, using the same FlexTables technology they can find in the other included platforms.
Additional new features of WaterGEMS V8 XM include: Criticality Analysis Center to help identify critical assets in water distribution infrastructure and evaluate the risk associated with their failure; New modeling elementsincluding hydrants, isolation valves, and variable speed pump batteries to support asset management and hydraulic modeling workflows; Pressure-dependent demands to model intermittent water supply scenarios, sprinkler heads, and unaccounted-for water; and Centralized water demand management
