Next generation for warehouse design system

Cirrus Logistics has launched the next generation of its warehouse layout design and simulation software, CLASS 2012.

The user interface has been updated to make it easier and quicker to use with a new ‘Animate’ function that allows users to animate their layout providing rapid visualisation.

There is a new point-and-click method for making movie sequences and an updated sharing functionality which enables movie files to be shared with non-CLASS users.

In addition, time-saving devices and common features from a Windows application environment have been added such as ‘cut and paste’, ‘drag and drop’, and ‘stretch objects’ which shortens the learning curve for new users and speeds up the warehouse design process.

Simon Shore, managing director of Cirrus Logistics, said: “The supply chain is continually seeking to drive out costs, no more so than in warehousing. By building the latest technology into CLASS 2012, we’re enabling greater functional sophistication and easy-to-use tools that not only safeguard the market leading position of CLASS, but we’re putting the power to save costs into the hands of our users.”

CLASS 2012 will officially be launched at Logistics Link Live on 13 June 2012, with a full demonstration available.
