About: 


NGS CLASSIFY 

Designers looking for technical information within their information libraries need to find information efficiently and all equivalent information together in one place.

Adding classification information to literature ensures it knows where it belongs in designer's information systems.

Librians will know where to put things, designers my rely on librarians but many libraries do not have a librarian in charge of them, so the literature is best labelled to enable non librarians to file new information correctly together.

NGS CLASSIFY is a service to classify literature, catalogues, samples and sample boxes on behalf of manufacturers and suppliers. (Fig. 3)

NGS CLASSIFY adopts the existing CLASSIFICATION systems in common use throughout the industry.
