Material flow control

The first step in material flow management is material reservation. NAS® contains highly sophisticated and adjustable algorithms for material reservation, which can be set at the level of the document type, client type, material group, and material. The user can individually adjust the type of reservation algorithm (e.g. FIFO, LIFO, FEFO). In addition, the user can create new types of reservation algorithms by defining parts of select statements that are at a run time dynamically executed against the relational database. Apart from the reservation algorithm, the user can adjust the outbound zones and their priorities for a whole load units store-out, whole packages store-out, and remnant store-out.

In this phase of operations, the control system considers the urgency of each operation, the necessity of a document for which the operation has been generated, and the type of client to whom the document belongs. Having a detailed knowledge of the environment, technology, and projected activities of the system, the operator can optimally allocate the operations and take care of their smooth execution.
