solutions

Warehouse Management System

Complex processes easily operated

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.

Easy to integrate

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.

current and clearly laid aout

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.

Material Flow Control System

smart transport movement

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.

start to a save future

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.

everything in view

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.

Forklift Control System

Smart driving – save hard

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.

Keep the overview

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.

Industry 4.0 in practice

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.

Simulation

tailored simulation

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.

hedging of investments

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.

simulation – learning from the future

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.

Service

24/7 for you to reach

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.
