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:
The systems aim to improve logistics performance and optimize logistics processes.
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.
For over 55 years, our new client has been developing and manufacturing innovative braking, chassis, and drive components for companies in the automotive industry. In recent years, the company has steadily evolved into a significant player in the global metal forming technology. Due to the digital transformation and to ensure continued production quality, iFD GmbH has been tasked with implementing a forklift control system.
iFD to showcase cutting-edge software solutions at LogiMAT 2024
iFD is looking forward to participating in LogiMAT 2024, one of the most prestigious international trade shows for logistics and intralogistics in Europe. The event is scheduled to take place at the Stuttgart Trade Fair Centre from March 19 - 21, 2024, where iFD will be exhibiting its latest advancements of its software solutions in booth 8F80, located in hall 8.
According to the organizers, LogiMAT 2023 achieved the highest attendance since the inception of the fair, with a total of 62,343 trade visitors. This aligns with our experiences and impressions this year. Never before have we had so many appointments and interesting conversations with potential new customers as we did at this fair.
From March 20th to 23rd, 2023, one of the largest trade fairs for material handling, logistics, and supply chain in North America will take place. As a reputable software partner for the entire intralogistics industry, iFD GmbH will also be present at this year's edition of PROMAT in Chicago.
On the occasion of the 1st European Future Forum from October 6th to 8th 2021, Saxon companies and Research and Develpment institutions are invited to accompany the Saxon State Minister for Regional Development, Thomas Schmidt, to Katowice.
Shortest paths, ergonomic work, maximum safety and fast pace in picking - that's what matters today. The company Sander Conveyor Technology cordially invites you to this expert forum.
As part of the expert forum, you can expect a presentation on how picking can also work quickly, agile, and safely in your warehouse
