The new version marks the most significant milestone to date in the evolution of the company’s CAD-based product line, now an industry standard for comprehensive water distribution engineering and a premier choice of major ENR design firms and utilities around the world. Praised for its intuitive, seamless AutoCAD-centric interface, outstanding power and stability, and comprehensive toolsets and extensions, H2ONET has received stellar industry recognition. The new release underscores MWH Soft’s commitment to be the leading provider of infrastructure modeling solutions for engineering professionals working in the powerful AutoCAD environment.
New and improved functionality and unique ease-of-use tools — developed in response to numerous customer requests — make V9 an incredibly powerful and indispensable modeling and design solution. In addition to gains in overall performance, stability, and interoperability, H2ONET V9 also utilizes the new AutoCAD 2010 ribbon toolbar structure to create an even stronger and more dynamic user experience.
Built atop AutoCAD, the world’s leading CAD platform, H2ONET delivers breakthrough performance in integrated real-time network modeling, GIS data exchange, spatial database query and analysis across multiple data types. It also provides the sophisticated mapping required for complete infrastructure management and business planning. Its pioneering functionality, full capability range, and state-of-the-art computational algorithms allow engineering professionals to directly access CAD and GIS datasets; extract pertinent modeling information; and automatically construct, skeletonize, load, calibrate, analyze, design, operate and optimize any network model — saving time and money across the enterprise. Such capabilities can greatly assist water utilities in complying with drinking water quality regulations, understanding and controlling taste and odor problems, developing cost-effective energy solutions for water system operations, improving system reliability and integrity, optimizing capital improvements.
These enhancements have propelled H2ONET product suite applications into the next generation. They further MWH Soft’s time-honored practice of continually adding value to its software; bringing new, unsurpassed modeling and design capabilities into the mainstream; and backing its advances with unparalleled technical support. The suite has the robustness, speed, accuracy and feature set necessary to handle the most demanding analysis. Yet it’s intuitive enough for a new user to master without a drawn-out learning curve — making it the ultimate AutoCAD-based decision support tool for water distribution systems.
“For over a decade, we have evolved H2ONET to meet the demands of our customers and take them step after step further,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., Hon.D.WRE, F.ASCE. “Our customers have found extremely progressive ways to use H2ONET. We continue to build their feedback into our latest innovations, tailoring this industry-leading AutoCAD-centric modeling platform to best serve their network management challenges.
“In H2ONET V9, we have developed a powerful, comprehensive tool that addresses the entire modeling process, from model building and analysis all the way through design and optimization. We will continue to listen to our customers and aggressively respond to their needs.”
