Innovyze Releases InfoMaster V5.0 With Extended Work Order Management, Valve Criticality Analysis, Linear Extended Yule Process Pipe Failure Model
Highly Advanced Analytical Asset Management Tool Optimizes Water/Sewer Network Rehabilitation Prioritization, Capital Planning Programs for Sustainable Infrastructures
Broomfield, Colorado, USA, December 16, 2014 — Innovyze, a leading global innovator of business analytics software and technologies for smart wet infrastructure, today introduced InfoMaster Generation V5.0, with new and improved analysis and reporting applications. Where other ERP systems are focused on electronic records management, InfoMaster is built from the ground up to provide superior business analytics and modeling capabilities. A highly advanced and powerful analytical asset management tool, InfoMaster uses state-of-the-art mathematical models to predict when a water or sewer pipe will fail, helping utilities determine the most cost-effective solution for avoiding or correcting the problem. In this way, users can ensure the best distribution of dollars spent on replacement and repair of underground pipes. It marks the first time utilities have been able to manage and control the flow of both data and water for better, faster and more accurate decision making.

Certified by NASSCO PACP, MACP and LACP V6.0, the new version features the direct use of external tables, such as customs CCTV and inspection data, in the rehabilitation planning decision process. A comprehensive dashboard instantly displays vital network statistics including counts of likelihood and consequence of asset failures, and a streamlined work order management system oversees service requests, field inspections, work orders, and resources. The new version also includes complete manhole rehabilitation assessment and planning tools, a detailed valve criticality analysis for improved infrastructure maintenance and customer service levels, and the Linear Extended Yule Process pipe failure model.

Globally, aging water and wastewater infrastructures are rapidly deteriorating and sometimes failing — with potentially dire human, environmental and financial consequences. As this aging process continues, the need for effective asset integrity management becomes more pressing. Maintaining water and sewer assets in fit-for-purpose condition throughout their target lifespans is a primary goal for utilities worldwide, and selecting the right pipes for rehabilitation at the right time is one of the main challenges of asset management. An understanding of when and how pipes will fail, combined with a quantitative grasp of the underlying causal factors likely to induce failure, is essential in formulating a targeted approach to rehabilitation, repair and renewal planning. InfoMaster accurately estimates both the likelihood and consequence of failure for each individual pipe in the network, as well as the amount and time of occurrence of future failures. This critical information facilitates a proactive approach to identifying and managing these high-risk assets to help preserve structural integrity and keep the network operating well into the future. It also eliminates reactive maintenance: waiting for pipe failures to occur before repairing.

InfoMaster comprehensive asset integrity modeling techniques provide reliable pipe failure predictions, even for limited failure records and application to different pipe materials. They include the Linear Extended Yule Process (LEYP), the Cox proportional hazards model, and the advanced time-based probabilistic Weibull and Herz models. They can be effectively used to evaluate a variety of pipe characteristics related to failure, and can consider all pipes in the network, not just those with breaks or other failures. Armed with these powerful models, utilities can now accurately assess the aging processes of water and wastewater network pipes and estimate their lifetimes and structural/functional failure potential and distribution over time. Such capabilities can greatly assist water and wastewater utilities in assessing their pipes’ propensity to fail, identifying critical ones (more prone to failure), prioritizing their inspection and determining rehabilitation requirements. This proactive “fix before break” approach can help utilities extend the useful life of their assets and improve their performance at maximum savings.

The InfoMaster product suite automatically imports InfoWater and InfoSWMM network models and facilitates significantly better planning and control by giving utilities critical insight into all enterprise assets, their conditions, aging and work processes. It also features direct integration with Cityworks (Azteca Systems Inc., Sandy, UT) and Lucity (Overland Park, KS), and can interface with other leading maintenance management software (CMMS). The software enables utilities to use information and analytics in new ways to drive higher productivity and quality while managing costs and increasing operational flexibility.

Available exclusively for the Esri (Redlands, CA) ArcGIS 10.x platform, InfoMaster includes components to run on desktop, web, tablet, and smartphone environments. With its “out-of-the-box” approach to geospatial wet infrastructure asset management — a distinct point of differentiation from traditional enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions — InfoMaster revolutionizes business analytics and optimization (BAO) for water and wastewater utilities. While the typical enterprise software deployment requires a 12- to 18-month implementation cycle,InfoMaster can be deployed in just a day to a few weeks — giving small to medium-sized utilities the first-ever opportunity to optimize network management at very low cost. Because InfoMaster data can be organized by project, a single BAO package can be used by both the utility and its engineering consultants — providing enormous flexibility in managing data for multiple utilities.

Using InfoMaster, a utility can manage its entire underground infrastructure directly from the Esri geodatabase to deliver unmatched engineering productivity and network performance. Because any analysis is only as strong as its underlying data, InfoMaster includes direct support for gravity pipes, force mains, manholes, laterals, pump stations, closed circuit television (CCTV) inspections, manhole inspections, smoke testing, customer incidents and other field activities. Data can be read directly from an enterprise geodatabase; imported or linked to third-party ERP systems; or entered directly through the desktop, Web, or companion smartphone or tablet applications.

(CCTV acceptance inspection of sewers is standard practice in the U.S. and Australia. The PACP, MACP and LACP programs of the US National Association of Sewer Service Companies (NASSCO) and the Conduit Inspection Reporting Code of Australia WSA05, published by the Australian Water Services Association, provide guidance to utilities in determining the acceptability of sewer defects and features.)

InfoMaster analysis tools are unparalleled in the industry, giving utilities the ability to validate and then “slice and dice” virtually any piece of data. Armed with clean data, they can then use InfoMaster tools and wizards to move nimbly in optimizing operations. Among these tools are applications that can be used to establish a prioritized capital replacement plan based on sound condition assessment; reduce the number of “hotspot” cleaning activities by comparing current cleaning schedules to reported upstream blockage complaints; and overlay smoke testing defects reported in real time via an iPhone with Bing (Microsoft, Redmond, WA) aerial maps to facilitate identification of older houses with cross connections.

“Preserving the physical integrity of water and sewer network assets helps ensure they remain available and reliable longer,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., BCEEM, NAE, Hon.D.WRE, Dist.D.NE, F.ASCE, President, COO and Chief Technical Officer for Innovyze. “Improving the likelihood of smoother operations with fewer interruptions — creating more uptime and less downtime — also leads to more profits for the operation. InfoMaster is a must have for meeting these goals. It combines ease of learning and use with a powerful, comprehensive set of graphical presentation tools, time-based probabilistic asset failure analysis models, and asset integrity management capabilities for accurate prediction of structural or functional deterioration of water and wastewater pipes. Faced with challenging budget constraints, these unique advantages help water and wastewater utilities develop sound annual replacement plans for critical pipes that balance investment with expected benefits in a risk-based management context. They also enable users to exceed their operational quality standards by extending both asset service life and overall reliability and performance at maximum cost savings — significantly increasing return on investment.”

Charting Your Smart Water Strategy by Innovyze

InfoMaster Webinar
Smart Water technology continues to evolve at an astounding pace with new solutions entering the market promising huge energy savings, accounting for every drop of water, predicting pipeline failures, and more.  The promise and hype of smarter water systems have intrigued many utilities, but adoption isn’t widespread. Costs and benefits—the limiting factors—many times can’t be easily justified. 
What has always worked in the industry is incremental change; take a complex problem with multiple moving parts and slowly solve it one part at a time starting with the low-hanging fruit. This approach means the industry needs practical, intermediate and cost-effective solutions to work before operators and managers are ready to use or believe in automated smart water sensing technology.
This four part webcast series, titled “Charting Your Smart Water Strategy”, outlines just such an approach.  Each live webcasts will outline an intermediate and actionable step to building your own smart water system.

Showing Multiple Link Attributes in InfoSewer

This blog shows how to display multiple link parameters.

The 1st method would be to use Arc Map Layer properties and label multiple parameters for each gravity main or force main.  The image below shows and example and here is the code inside of Arc Map to do this

Function FindLabel ( [DIAMETER], [Pipe.SHAPE_Length], [COEFF] )
  FindLabel = [DIAMETER] & " m / "  & " " & [Pipe.SHAPE_Length]  &  " m / n "   & [COEFF] 
End Function
Arc Map Label Annotation

Or 

Function FindLabel ( [DIAMETER], [Pipe.SHAPE_Length], [COEFF] )
  FindLabel = " D= " & [DIAMETER] & " m / L="  & " " & [Pipe.SHAPE_Length]  &  " m / n "   & [COEFF] 
End Function
 
Label Properties in Arc Map or Arc GIS

The 2nd method is to use Annotation and Map Display in InfoSewer

If you want to show both pipe diameter and slope on the map of InfoSewer you will have to workaround the limitation of having only one map variable:
1. You can map the diameter using Map Display and then
2. Use the Annotation tool to show the 2nd variable such as Length or slope.
3. Here is an example with different colors for diameter and length

InfoSWMM 2D Version 13 Brings Significant 1D and 2D Simulation Advancements To Power Users

InfoSWMM 2D Version 13 Brings Significant 1D and 2D Simulation Advancements To Power Users

Latest Release Confirms Product as Leading GIS-centric Urban Drainage Modeling and Management Solution

Broomfield, Colorado, USA, November 18, 2014

Innovyze, a leading global innovator of business analytics software and technologies for smart wet infrastructure, today announced the worldwide availability of the V13 Generation of its industry-leading InfoSWMM 2D for ArcGIS (Esri, Redlands, CA). InfoSWMM 2D delivers new ways to quickly and accurately build and analyze very large and comprehensive two-dimensional (2D) models that reliably simulate complex urban stormwater, sanitary sewers, river flooding and pollutant transport. It allows users to accurately predict the extent and duration of urban and rural flooding for comprehensive stormwater management directly within the powerful ArcGIS environment.

A fully hydrodynamic geospatial stormwater modeling and management software application, InfoSWMM 2D can be used to model the entire land phase of the hydrologic cycle as applied to urban stormwater systems. Built atop ArcGIS and using exceptionally robust and efficient numerical simulation capabilities, the model can perform single-event or long-term (continuous) rainfall/runoff simulations accounting for climate, soil, land use, and topographic conditions of the watershed. In addition to simulating runoff quantity, InfoSWMM 2D can reliably predict runoff quality, including buildup and washoff of pollutants from primarily urban watersheds. It also features very sophisticated Real-Time Control (RTC) schemes for the operational control and management of hydraulic structures.

A hallmark of InfoSWMM 2D is its dynamic integration of one-dimensional (1D) hydrodynamic simulation of flows in open channels, HEC-22 inlets and closed pipe networks with two-dimensional (2D) hydrodynamic simulation of surface runoff, evaporation, infiltration and flooding in the urban environment. The dynamic integration, achieved through an explicit coupling of 1D and 2D flow equations, provides a powerful solution for simultaneously modeling belowground and aboveground elements of watersheds to accurately represent all flow paths and improve understanding of holistic processes. InfoSWMM 2D also directly simulates the rainfall and infiltration on both the watershed and the 2D surface to better simulate 1D flooding, 2D surface flooding, 2D shallow groundwater recharge and complex 1D and 2D surface interactions.

The full 2D free-surface shallow water equations are solved using a highly advanced finite volume method, which is particularly suitable for rapidly varying flood flows such as those moving through steep streets and road junctions and those associated with bank overtopping or breaching. The unparalleled 1D/2D dynamic linking capabilities of InfoSWMM 2D give engineers the unprecedented power to analyze and predict potential flood extents, depth and velocity and accurately model the interaction of surface and underground systems in an integrated 1D/2D environment. The software can be used to simulate point sources, 2D boundaries, multiple 2D mesh and simulation polygons in a sewer or stormwater network. The combined water level and velocity results throughout the flooded areas can be viewed as various comprehensive graphs; tables; or animated, thematic flood maps.

Among its many new enhancements, Version 13 uses a significantly improved 2D simulation engine, the flexible InfoSWMM ArcMap polygon tools, a 1D InfoSWMM engine based on the latest EPA SWMM 5.1, a new 1D and 2D graphics engine and a comprehensive Output Report Manager and Statistical Event Manager for both 1D and 2D output. In addition, the new release allows users to instantly visualize the maximum extent of flooding in vivid 2D and 3D maps.

“We’re deeply committed to providing a geospatial modeling experience that is both intuitive and powerful, and InfoSWMM 2D V13 embodies that commitment,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., BCEEM, NAE, Hon.D.WRE, Dist.D.NE, F.ASCE, President, COO and Chief Technical Officer of Innovyze. “This release delivers major geotechnological and computational enhancements in short release cycles to make sure our customers are always equipped with the ultimate ArcGIS-centric decision support tool for stormwater and urban drainage systems. It greatly extends the core features of InfoSWMM, providing the most powerful and comprehensive ArcGIS-centric tool kit ever for managing the risks of urban and rural flooding. This is a must have for effectively controlling and managing sanitary sewer and combined sewer overflows.”
