IFD GmbH plans, develops and implements worldwide software systems for automated and manual intralogistics in industry and commerce. The range of services of the iFD includes the following product areas:
In our independent research and development department, we have all the conditions to permanently guarantee innovations and further developments for the iFD software systems and add-on components.
Continuous development and committed research as well as the targeted improvement of concepts and products are the guarantors of success for adapted software systems, which represent the ideal logistics solution for a large number of national and international customers.
Since the company was founded in 1990 we have already realised more than 300 projects.
The iFD systems can be found in almost all sizes and types across all branches of industry - from traditional warehouse management for manual and automated warehouses, to material flow systems for systems with high availability requirements through to picking systems, using Pick-by-Vision or Pick-by-Light -Technology.
The browser-based, modular Warehouse Management System supports all manual and automatic intralogistics processes. With dimensioning logics, the system is suitable for both classic picking warehouses and highly complex automated systems - with batch or wave picking.
The system stands for maximum flexibility, which is particularly evident in individual hardware concepts and the connectivity options of host and subsystems. Smartphones, tablets and wearables can easily be integrated at any technology level. The well thought-out, intuitive operating instructions facilitate quick training and increase the acceptance of the system.
With perfectly coordinated report and KPI functionalities, the WMS contains a complete control tool. The monitoring and evaluation of processes - up to the employee evaluation - is part of the system. The stock visualisation provides utilisation and order key figures and provides recommendations for action.
The level of automation in logistics is increasing continuously. Due to high investment costs, it is essential to fully exhaust the performance of your plants with intelligent control. IFD's material flow control is a Manufacturer-independent, future-proof solution that delivers best-in-class performance, optimal routing, flexible interfaces, and platform-independent technology.
New construction or retrofit: The iFD MFCS secures system availability of more than 99.8% and adapts to all requirements.Due to perfectly proven migration
concepts as well as many years of experience, iFD GmbH is a reliable partner in the replacement of existing systems and the uninterrupted introduction of state-of-the-art solutions.
With the MFCS from iFD all relevant system parameters are visualized easily understandable. A central browser-based monitoring, which eliminates the need for additional SCADA software, permanently visualizes information about the system occupancy, active transport requests or circle states s of individual conveyor stations. Adjustments such as locking and unlocking of individual areas can be made directly via the visualization.
Increase the performance of your fleet with existing resources. All transports are optimised in a digital order pool, managed and assigned to the forklift fleet in real time. Increase process reliability, avoid empty runs, maximise utilisation and meet target deadlines - the iFD forklift control system supports everything.
The iFD SLS keeps track of utilisation, locations and available equipment at all times. As a result, priorities from orders and processes are reconciled and conflicts are eliminated. Using comprehensive statistics, the system can generate KPIs and provides comprehensive evaluations of productivity, full and empty runs and fleet utilisation.
The connection and control of driverless transport systems (AGV) is also implemented in the iFD-SLS. And our system even goes a step further, as it not only allows the control and optimisation of the manned and unmanned fleet, but also the coordinated control of man and machine in one system.
Complexity and dynamics in the production and logistics process are constantly increasing. Logistical problems often push the boundaries of Operation Research methods, and that's where our simulation system comes in. The digital model analyses emerging issues and can be fixed before they affect your inventory.
With a reliable simulation, you receive an important tool for answering questions regarding the optimal design of conveyor technology as well as for the optimization of production processes and order sequences. This allows you to check in advance the benefits of planned investments and to assess their effectiveness.
With a simulation that realistically maps the complexity and dynamics of your technical systems, your processes can be displayed transparently. You can test new processes and coordinate them optimally. The simulation shows cause-and-effect relationships and allows bottlenecks to be identified and analysed before they occur.
support level 1 – Helpdesk:
You report the incident to the helpdesk of the iFD Group. By means of a hotline and/ or remote access for application software, a first error analysis is carried out and necessary measures are initiated.
support level 2 – Second Level Support:
If a problem can not be solved by our help desk, the second level support will handle the service case.
support level 3 – Third Level Support:
In the event that the problem solving needs to involve the developers of the affected components, manufacturers or third parties, the help desk monitors and coordinates necessary activities.
iFD GmbH wins a new WMS customer from Lower Saxony. The company Schmettau & Fuchs GmbH offers engine and vehicle wear parts. The goal is to optimize the intralogistics with the help of the agile and highly available iFD-WMS and an AutoStore connection.
The boom in the electric vehicle segment did not just arrive in Germany yesterday. The development of fuel prices and the difficult situation surrounding the availability of oil are causing demand to explode once again.
The implementation of the agile and highly available iFD Warehouse Management System incl. connecting material flow control and AutoStore connection enables a worldwide, fast and efficient service for the customers of heo GmbH.
The modernization includes the material flow control for the existing 4-aisle tray storage system.
According to statistics from the Creditreform, only 1.7% of German companies meet the high requirements of the "CrefoZert" audit.
Increased challenges and necessary adjustments to their existing system kicked off a dialogue between Klebchemie M.G. Becker GmbH & Co.KG, based in Weingarten, Baden, and iFD GmbH. With the existing warehouse control system, adaptations could only be implemented to a limited extent, so that in February 2020 iFD recommended a modernization and thus future-proof replacement of the existing system.
The companies iFD and DAMBACH Lagersysteme announce their strategical partnership in the field of material flow control systems.
