Material flow analysis, material flow planning, material flow control: LFS.wcs

The level of automation in warehouses and distribution centers keeps rising, and smart control tools that efficiently monitor and analyze your entire workflow are gaining in importance. With LFS.wcs, we are offering a manufacture-independent and future-proof software system that lets you control your material flow
to precisely meet those new requirements.

Material flow control with LFS.wcs.

It doesn’t get more flexible than that

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.

Brand new installation or upgrade?

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, make sure that your system remains fully functional at all times during the upgrade.

Material flow analysis with 3D visualisation and emulation

Use the integrated LFS.mfv 3D visualisation 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 but also simulates them making sure 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 allowing 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 overall package

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 LFS.wms, resulting in one powerful overall package. Plus, this also reduces the number of software solutions and lets you manage and control all of your warehouse workflows from within a single system. If needed, you can even save on hardware investment costs and use our private cloud solutions.

Your benefits of flexible material flow planning

  • Manufacture-independent connection of materials handling technology
  • Direct integration into LFS.wms
  • Installation on the same server as your WMS
  • Fully integrated 3D visualisation WMS
  • High uptime and availability
  • Dedicated contact person throughout the entire project duration
  • Flexible setup and control
