The material flow computer calculates the fastest route through the materials handling equipment in real-time as part of the transport management process.

Taking into account the available facility resources, the material flow computer decides on routes and responsibilities.
The infrastructure of the materials handling equipment stored in the system, in conjunction with the evaluation of the current operating conditions, ensures maximum utilization.
