THE C&S SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS COMMUNITY NEWSLETTER
Welcome to the April issue of NEWSLETTER.
What next! Our Products and Services
The information technology is keep on changing thoughout the time. This year the IT is moving into topic of Machine Learning. Are our engineering field is ready for it?
What we can do to adopt the changes! Engieering may not able to goes as close as possible the movement of technology. Somoehow, we believe that we can follow the path of technology, so we will not lost track among the time.
As a result, this year. We are into a new ERA where we are no longer provide just only software. But we are starting on additional servives such as Traning and Project services.
During the time we in business, we always approached by many customers where they were requesting us to provide these services. After many approaches, we were seriously look into these matters. Finally we decided to start on the training courses and project servces.
Therefore, stay tune on our next move....
X SERIES APPLICATIONS
Next Generation Applications
The changes of technology make our existing civil engineering software which had been in market for 10 years old fall into a dileama on supporting this new technology. For example, our developer tools such as Visual Studio 2017 had drop the support on Windows XP platform.
Some of our design components had no longer support this move. Therefore, we have to make a solid decision. Many old technology need to remove and new technology need to addon. The changes of these had created us a heavy overhead on handling these.
Whether we like it or not, this is the fact, we have to accept it. Even for our daily life. As a result, last year, we had decided to make the changes. The first group of data need to attend are our range of civil engineering software.
What are the X-Series Applications?
Our conventional software had been in market around 10 years. We noted until today, there still have many engineering firms are using our products.
- xDrain - Drainage Networks Analysis and Design
- xWater - Water Reticulation Networks Analysis and Design
- xSewer - Sewerage Networks Analysis and Design
- xStorm - Detention pond and onsite detention design(part of core MSMA Suite)
Besides the re-invent of applications. There is a new move on our products development where new we are supporting the public domain software such as EPA SWMM and EPANET for xDrain and xWater.

The core MSMA software in term of chapters of Urban Stormwater Management Manual for Malaysia Guideline. It had spent more than 10 years in development of these software. In the early days, we just focus on quantity; mainly on detention basin and onsite-detention. As years go on, we know that other topics in MSMA eventually become a need. Such as ESCP. Erosion and Sediment Control plan. It will becomes an important topic in country.
Total chapters in MSMA 2nd edition comprises of 20 chapters. We had covered every chapters of MSMA 2nd edition. Even the SUSToM for Sarawak.

Our Urban Stormwater Management Software
1.0 iDesign 2018
It covers mainly for create design criteria which can used for any design of urbanstorm for coming chapters.
It covers topics of pollutant estimation such as water quality volume, load estimation and some BMPs. It includes three working MSMA examples in this topic.
It covers topics of roof drainage system. It works from CAD drawing where user needs to import a roof CAD drawing into applicaiton. With predefine the layers for, roof catchment, roof gutter and downpipe. The application can works out requires gutter and downpipe sizes. It is useful for engineer who want to check any existing gutter size which may have predetermine by architect.
It covers quantity topics as before. The main difference between the Storm+ is it is EXPRESS mode, xStorm run in full automation with a list of data entry. Automation of routing and check the final output. It comes with full report in EXCEL format.
It covers quantity topics including chapter 1.0, 2.0, 5.0 and 7.0. It started from select rainfall station, then decide type of runoff by rational or time area method, then finally design the detention basin or OSD. It goes through step by step to build up the system. It is good for beginner to learn the process flow of detention basin.
It covers topic of Chapter 6. Rainwater harvesting. It provides tank sizing and pipe sizing in working examples
It covers topic of Chapter 8 Infiltration facilities. Two types of examples are covered Infiltration trench and basin. Here it comes with fully 3D view where the 3D view can be saved into CAD drawing. If client's office has CAD program that support 3D, this can use it to present to client by carrying the dwg file drawing to client office.

These modules can provide user an insight of clearview of how MSMA contents were being presented. User can has the logic behind the sceen where user can know how it works. Furthermore, it not like attending course; it can re-use further on user design, coursework or any studies.
Our team is always busy on R&D with products development. We hope our invention will greatly provide benefits to our civil engineers especially in our country. We are not limited our products development in desktop.
We also build mobile app in Android. One of our upcoming Android app is MSMA app. Do stay tune…
There will be never ending works in our company. No doubt the economy is slow, we are still committing our effort in development.
Now we have concentrated our team to our main office in Seremban. We don’t have any other development team other than our main Seremban office. Our people are knowledge base, they mainly in engineering background with technical knowhow.
Among us with regular discussion on knowledge, exchange ideal, seek for additional knowledge from some expertise. We will not build an application without understand the engineering concept. We spend time on research and development. For example myESCP takes around two years. ZeonEarth for period of two years.
We do welcome for any comments on engineers on our products development. We will do our best to serve our engineers the best.
