Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

What is Autodesk InfoWorks WS Pro used for?

Autodesk InfoWorks WS Pro helps you efficiently conduct master plans, design networks (pipes, pumps, tanks), accurately simulate operations (pump/valve control, flushing, water quality, emergency response, leak identification), and conveniently assess network resilience (criticality analysis for both pipes and valves). Multiple users can access, edit, and run the same network simultaneously using flags to track changes.

Who uses Autodesk InfoWorks WS Pro?

Autodesk InfoWorks WS Pro is used by water utility engineers who manage water distribution systems aiming to provide a safe and reliable drinking water supply, and water resources engineering consultants who perform distribution system calibration and master plan modeling projects.

What is the difference between InfoWorks WS Pro and InfoWater Pro?

InfoWorks WS Pro is used by engineering teams who don’t require ArcGIS, especially if multiple modelers are in the engineering team. It also provides advanced modelers with the ability to explore scripting to automate model maintenance and the import of data from different sources.

InfoWater Pro is typically used by GIS practitioners looking to answer hydraulic questions. They can easily model water networks from within ArcGIS Pro that they are familiar with and leverage spatial analysis and visualization tools.
