As your warehouse becomes more sophisticated, so do the challenges: Systems for pallet and container conveyor technology, automated storage and retrieval systems, carousel warehouse solutions, packaging systems and sensor technology all have to work in harmony in order to ensure a smooth flow of products. In order to achieve such a smooth flow, a central control system such as the material flow control system (MFC) by COGLAS is indispensable. By receiving current process flow data and analysing the data, the system is able to control the material flow at a high level. In this process, the system recognizes critical situations such as jammed pathways.
On the basis of this input, the control system optimises the flow of materials and sends control signals back to the individual system modules to ensure a seamless logistics chain. Warehouse employees are able to monitor the current material flow on screen. Additionally, the system can easily visualise diagrams with your own warehouse layout, bottlenecks, loops and transition nodes, allowing users to intervene throughout the process if necessary.
