VUMA-network 3.0 represents a streamlined, user-friendly and extremely robust software product with significant new developments and improvements compared to version 2.5. Network construction is now more rapid due to added functionality in the 2-D graphics interface. Navigating and viewing the network has been significantly enhanced. Visualization of the network and results is provided in a fully rotational and scalable high-resolution 3-D graphics interface; process variables are colour coded and users are able to customise the min-max display range.

Another major improvement is that the database format has been restructured to effectively manage library and network files and this allows easy transfer and sharing of files between computers. VUMA-network 3.0 will be available to clients from mid-2006 and will set new standards of excellence in underground mine ventilation simulation software.
