Why use Autodesk InfoWorks WS Pro?

Collaborate within and between teams

Improve productivity with team editing of the water distribution model and smart tracking.

Efficiently simulate in a cloud environment

Conduct rapid analysis using the scalability of cloud.

Trust operational insights

Increase operational confidence through SCADA integration and detailed hydraulics.

What you can do with Autodesk InfoWorks WS Pro

Boost efficiency in representing real water systems

Automate the connexion to third-party applications such as GIS and telemetry, shortening model building time while ensuring model results reflect the real system. InfoWorks WS Pro improves productivity and provides a reliable decision-support tool.

Improve team productivity with reliable database operations

Scalable, enterprise-access hydraulic models provide multi-user editing, version-controlled model tracking to resolve conflicts between changes, customisable user permissions and data flags to keep track of changes in the model.

Quickly and accurately model water systems

Build, edit and run complete hydraulic models accurately and efficiently for any stage of the represented network infrastructure lifecycle, from planning and design to operations and maintenance.

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 modelling 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 modellers are in the engineering team. It also provides advanced modellers 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 visualisation tools.


What operating systems does Autodesk Infoworks WS Pro run on?

Autodesk Infoworks WS Pro runs on Microsoft® Windows®. See InfoWorks WS Pro system requirements (US Site) for details.

Can models be accessed across teams?

More than one user, whether in the same team or across teams, can access the same master database and work on the same network simultaneously. The master database provides a flexible hierarchy for managing model data and offers comprehensive database management facilities, which lets the end users organise their work logically and efficiently. The person who creates a database can assign varying levels of rights to other users, and it is possible to set up granularity within a database.

Which versions of InfoWorks WS Pro can I use if I subscribe to the current version?

Your InfoWorks WS Pro subscription gives you access to install and use the 3 previous versions. Available downloads are listed in your Autodesk Account after subscribing. See also previous releases available for subscribers.

Can I install InfoWorks WS Pro on multiple computers?

With a subscription to InfoWorks WS Pro software, you can install it on up to 3 computers or other devices. However, only the named user can sign in and use that software on a single computer at any given time. Please refer to the Software Licence Agreement (US Site)
