Micro Drainage (Windes) is a great program for designing integrated drainage solutions. The program is able to design pipe networks, storage facilities and has flood modelling capabilities. It integrates well with AutoCAD and can output pipe schedules and long sections making it ideal for design on construction projects.
What do you dislike?
The program can become frustrating when making changes to pipe networks which can cause a bit of re-work and it would be ideal to be able to import information via a spreadsheet format into the program to save set up time.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I am currently using Micro Drainage for highway drainage design and it has proved useful to be able to input the full drainage solution (rainfall, pipe networks and storage facilities) into the one program to produce a more accurate design. The program also has an interface with AutoCAD and can import surfaces from CIvil3D which makes designing the drainage easier.
