Material flow calculator MFR
Our Material flow calculator MFR is a software for controlling the data and information flows in automatic robot systems, storage systems and conveyor systems. Article management, operational data acquisition and order picking are also part of the MFR's range of services, which has extensive function and interface modules as well as communication interfaces to all common ERP and database systems.
Thanks to its modular structure, the MFR supports a wide range of requirements. The material flow calculator offers function modules, e.g. the packing scheme generator, the control of conveyor technology, warehouse management, picking or operating data acquisition. Each module has its own interface. The interface modules enable the connection of various systems developed in-house and from other providers. The user-friendliness is also reflected in the clear user interface design and clear menu structure. The data from the packing scheme generator can also be viewed and modified by other PCs.
The MFR receives the order data from the higher-level host system, translates it into individual tasks and, depending on the module, distributes it effectively to the corresponding system components. The parts can be selectively processed and the current status can be read at any time by means of parts registration and parts tracking using barcode / RFID.

Module: ERP connection
A consistent data flow is more important than ever in times of digitization and Industry 4.0. Therefore, all of our systems can of course be connected to your existing higher-level ERP system. A regular exchange of production, performance, order and master data for all articles then takes place between the system and the ERP system. All order-related data (e.g. pallets, palletizing schemes, winding programs, label data) are automatically specified, thus eliminating the need for laborious and error-prone manual entry. All common ERP systems are compatible with our control software.
