MWH Soft Announces H2ONET V7 Release for AutoCAD 2007


Redrawing the boundaries of innovation in the waterworks industry, MWH Soft, a leading global provider of environmental and water resources applications software, today announced the worldwide availability of H2ONET Generation V7 for AutoCAD® 2007 (Autodesk, San Rafael, CA). The updated release heightens the value of H2ONET with significant advances and usability improvements focused on enhancing the user experience, increasing flexibility and computational speed, and facilitating greater productivity and performance.

V7 marks the most significant milestone to date in the evolution of the company’s flagship product, an industry standard for comprehensive water distribution engineering and the premier choice for major ENR design firms and large water utilities around the world. The release underscores MWH Soft’s determination to be the leading provider of infrastructure modeling solutions for waterworks industry professionals working in the powerful AutoCAD environment.

“It is amazing how MWH Soft continues to cleverly automate scores of tedious modeling tasks and give H2ONET more features, greater speed, versatility, and ease of use, and I applaud them for it,” said Adel AbouJaoude, Ph.D, Head of Environmental Engineering Department at Khatib & Alami, a leading engineering and utility solutions provider, and an industry network modeling expert. “H2ONET V7 is one of many testaments to the company’s ongoing commitment to supporting their clients’ needs in a timely manner. MWH Soft continues to raise the bar for high-quality, high-performance modeling that makes our jobs much quicker, easier, and simpler. It’s fast, powerful, fluid, flexible, and worth every penny.”

Sophisticated enough for the most complex of projects, yet approachable for beginners, the new H2ONET V7 has been engineered at deep levels to deliver advanced modeling functionality and exponential increases in efficiency and speed while simplifying use. In addition to supporting the newly released AutoCAD 2007, H2ONET V7 debuts a comprehensive engineering validation manager that checks network connectivity; reports missing data; and ensures data is consistent with expected engineering values, based on industry standards or any user-defined set of validation rules. Other advances include a new node reordering matrix solution algorithm for faster calculations, significantly improved graphical performance, and an array of powerful new model management tools to optimize speed and streamline workflow. These enhancements propel H2ONET product suite applications into the next generation and carry on MWH Soft’s time-honored practice of continually adding value to its software, bringing new, unsurpassed modeling capabilities into the mainstream, and backing its products with unparalleled technical support.

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, and the sophisticated mapping required for complete infrastructure (asset) management and business planning. Its pioneering functionality 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 improvement and rehabilitation programs, enhancing community relations, and planning sound security measures.

“Our priorities have always been to advance the frontiers of modeling technology and support our customers’ successes by making them more productive and competitive,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D, President and Chief Operating Officer of MWH Soft. “Supporting AutoCAD 2007 and packed with compelling new functionality, H2ONET V7 delivers on our promise to equip customers with the ultimate decision support tool for water distribution systems. It is once again setting the standard for quality and high-end water network modeling and management with unrivaled cutting edge capabilities, rich functionality, speed, stability, and ease of use. From top to bottom, this release is designed to enable world-record modeling performance — allowing our users to increase productivity and quality while achieving their engineering and business goals.”

“For over a decade, we have evolved H2ONET to meet the demands of our customers and take them one step further,” said J. Erick Heath, PE, Vice President of Sales and Professional Services at MWH Soft. “Our customers have been extremely progressive in the ways they use H2ONET, and we continue to advance this industry-leading CAD-centric modeling platform to best serve their network management challenges. With H2ONET V7, we now have a powerful, comprehensive tool that addresses the entire modeling process, from model building and analysis all the way through design and optimization. Today, H2ONET is by far the best choice for comprehensive network modeling in the AutoCAD platform, from basic planning studies to sophisticated design, rehabilitation, expansion, operation and vulnerability/risk assessment projects.”
