Improved flexibility in Coldwind Pro Product selections
For more than 25 years Coldwind, along with its later professional feature enhanced version Coldwind Pro, have had minimum Product turnover limits set at 2 kg per cubic metre room volume per cycle. This of course to protect program users from inadvertently or mistakenly including product loads far too low to reflect likely usage. However, the lower limits, as low as they were nonetheless frustrated attempts to add and accumulate a mixture of additional products from which the overall calculation result might benefit.
As shown in the above example where although the principal product load might be attributed to wine, calculation accuracy would be enhanced by simultaneous calculation of the load for the bottles in which the wine is contained, the cartons in which the bottles are contained and finally the pallets or stillages upon which the wine cartons are placed. There are of course hundreds more product storage situations where this applies.
Although probably not making much difference for a 1,000 cubic metre cold store, experience has shown this calculation enhancement becomes much more important in examples of super sized distribution centres of 40,000 cubic metres, 80,000 cubic metres and more recently some of even more than 120,000 cubic metres.Mistral's expert system software is constantly evolving to meet new challenges in the industry.
