This method is similar to the closest junction methods, except it allocates demands according to a user-defined meter allocation. For example, the closest junction method uses GIS technology to automatically determine how demands from meters will be assigned. In this method, you are able to graphically assign which meters will be allocated to which junctions. The ability to assign meters to specific junction nodes is achieved through the use of the Meter Assignment dialog box. For each of the meters assigned to specific junction nodes, demands are then summed to establish localized demands imposed on each of the junction nodes.
