Fast decisions and optimal routes

There are many many ways to reach the same destination – WHP finds the right one in milliseconds. The route optimisation is the core of the material flow control system. The iFD-WHP has an intelligent routing-engine, which processes all aspects of a transportation order in real-time and is always finding the best route. According to capacity, availability, interferences or in dependence of certain rules, the best route will be selected.

maximal adaptability

The MFC offers standard interfaces to any common HOST systems, like for example SAP. By means of the flexible interface module, it is easily possible to connect any subordinate systems. Standard interfaces exist for Kanban systems, stacker crane, electrified monorail systems, electronic scale, labeler, volume measuring instruments, cardboard container erector or pallet wrappers to name only a few elements. In addition, for migration projects, insufficient documented interfaces can be replicated with the iFD technology.

Track material flow in real time

The integrated graphical iFD plant visualisation gives you a central overview of the condition of the entire system. The standard version includes a scaling of the visualisation from a complete overview to detailed information of individual places or containers. Graphic elements provide additional information such as LU number, source or destination.
