Material Flow Analysis, Material Flow Planning And Material Flow Control

Warehouse automation is on the rise and smart control tools that efficiently monitor and analyze your entire workflow are becoming more important than ever before.  LFS.wcs is a manufacture-independent and future-proof module that can handle all your material flow controls and analysis requirements.

Material flow control with LFS.wcs

Flexibility

The Material flow control LFS.wcs manages, controls, and coordinates all aspects of your automated material flow. The main advantage over other similar solutions: LFS.wcs runs independently of any materials handling technology you might already use. You can even connect various different mechanisms simultaneously. The integrated visualization system offers operators an overview of all events in real time. Benefit from our manufacture-independent approach and our many years of logistics experience for an optimized workflow within your warehouse.

Adaptability

Be it a brand-new installation or a warehouse upgrade, LFS.wcs adapts to meet your needs. When you build a new logistics center, we are with you every step of the way to coordinate the LFS.wcs interfaces needed for the various software programs and automated systems. When you upgrade your warehouse, we support you during day-to-day operations. We connect our material flow controller to your existing technology and, by applying an efficient project management approach, ensure that your system remains fully functional throughout the entire upgrade.

3D Visualization

Use the integrated LFS.mfv 3D visualization solution with ‘zoom’ function to take a look inside your warehouse – even before you launch. The software you are deploying not only visualizes all of your material flows, including rack and shelving systems in 3D; it also simulates them to ensure that your integrated materials handling technology is used efficiently and that all parts of the system work together in perfect harmony. LFS.mfe is the integrated emulation tool that allows you to ‘model’ your warehouse management system and LFS.wcs from a test system, without actual hardware, to create the optimum material flow and control process before you buy.

One Powerful Solution

LFS.wcs adapts to your existing infrastructure. The material flow control tool features an open interface vis-à-vis the automated systems, be they centralized or decentralized, and regardless of platform, database, or hardware used. LFS.wcs continuously collects and analyzes movement data and performance indicators. As a result, economically inefficient workflows are becoming a thing of the past. The material flow controller is of course ideally suited for the warehouse management system LFS.wms, resulting in one powerful overall package. Plus, this also reduces the number of software solutions and allows you manage and control all of your warehouse workflows from within a single system
