Co-op takes Class approach to warehouse modelling

The Co-operative Group has adopted Class, the warehouse layout and simulation tool developed by Cirrus Logistics.

Chris Sollinger, warehouse design and project analyst at The Co-operative said: “The graphics are a million times better than what we had before, the help function is brilliant, the modifications between projects are easy because you don’t have to change all the co-ordinates and being able to bring data in from the WMS makes a massive difference.”

The Co-operative Group first became aware of Class when the business acquired Somerfield and, along with it, a Class licence.

Earlier this year Cirrus released the 12th generation of Class which now has the ability to import real warehouse activity direct from the warehouse management system enabling faster and more accurate model building than before.
