The figure below shows the main panel of the AsTeRICS Configuration Suite after the application has started. The screen is divided in four main areas, the menu area (1), the Deployment area (2) (where the drawing will be done), the GUI Designer area (3), switchable with the Deployment area and the Properties area (4), where the settings of the components can be adapted.
