Wallingford Software announced recently the release of Version 7.0 of InfoWorks, the software for modeling infrastructure planning and operational management in water distribution and supply, wastewater management and sewerage provision, river management and coastal engineering. Version 7.0, released as scheduled, is the second new InfoWorks release of 2005, confirming that Wallingford Software continues to meet the most aggressive product development schedule in the industry.
InfoWorks WS, covering water distribution and supply, features for the first time an Automated Pump Scheduler. Based on genetic algorithm optimization, the Scheduler includes comprehensive power tariffs modeling to enable the optimization of energy costs. In addition to the Pump Scheduler, InfoWorks WS v7.0 will provide clients with a further 17 new features and improvements. For example, the already very popular Critical Link Analysis tool has been further developed to run against large networks of more than 50,000 links that InfoWorks routinely models. InfoWorks CS V7.0, addressing wastewater management and sewerage provision, offers even faster run-times than previous versions.
