Default FlexTerm 1.0 Release

Hi All,

Moffatt & Nichol is glad to release FlexTerm 1.0 specialized for simulating container terminal operations. FlexTerm is the successor of FlexSim CT originally developed by FlexSim and now owned by Moffatt & Nichol. If you are a current FlexTerm licensed user, you can download the installer from your account in FlexSim website and obtain your FlexTerm license code there. For FlexSim CT users, the trial version of the program is available in your FlexSim account as well. If you have feature requests, bug reports, or other feedback on the software, please email to [email protected], post at FlexSim CT User Forum here, or post at FlexTerm discussion group https://man.fogbugz.com/default.asp?FlexTerm. For an introduction of the software, please visit FlexTerm website at www.flexterm.com.

Below is a list of FlexTerm 1.0 features since FlexSim CT 3.3.

--- FlexTerm 1.0.0 (November 18, 2013) ---
* New way to generate container profiles and to include more attributes such as
equipment types, empty and reefer containers, container height and weight as
well as the ability of generating user-defined container attributes.
* Provide a way in container profile to generate container population based on
the proportion specified. The proportion can be inputted based on the dependency
specified among container attributes.
* New way to filter containers in Berth Planner, Yard Planner, Gate Planner, and
Rail Planner to have Container Profile better using container attributes.

for example reshuffling containers to a different bay as used in an RMG/ASC terminal.

crane to serve a particular vessel, for example allowing user to simulate
Mobile Harbor cranes.

both for load and discharge.

Default About the compatibility with CT 3.3?

1) The models made in CT 3.3 can be run without any problems in new Flexterm 1.0?

2) Can be installed with CT 3.3 like Flexsim 7.02?

I want to know about it.

Thanks.

Syseo,

1) FlexTerm 1.0 supports backwards compatibility with FlexSim CT 3.3 models. When you open a CT 3.3 model in FlexTerm, FlexTerm will automatically update the CT 3.3 components to compatible FlexTerm 1.0 components. If you experience any issues when using a CT 3.3 model in FlexTerm, please send an email to [email protected] or post in the FlexSim CT forum here.

2) If I understand your question correctly, FlexTerm 1.0 can be installed alongside CT 3.3.

Regards,

Lawrence Andres

Hi

Is there a place that I can download without going through the registration? Such as User Login?

David,


if you already have a CT license, you can download the FlexTerm installer from your FlexSim user account as well.


Best wishes

Default Download from FlexTerm Website

David,

You may also download a trial version of FlexTerm from the FlexTerm website:

http://www.flexterm.com/index.php/download-2/

Although there is no user login, it will ask you for some basic information such as your name and email address. Once you provide that information, an email will be sent to you with instructions to download the program. Overall, it is a very short process.

I hope this alternative suits your needs.

Regards,

Lawrence Andres
