Professional in LFS

While the "Elementary", "Intermediate" and "LFS Operational Manager" courses are aimed at users who work on the operational side with LFS, the "LFS for Experts" course focuses on configuring and improving the operational processes themselves. The course is therefore primarily aimed at logistics managers, IT administrators and key users.

It covers all the settings for the master data and key files in LFS that are necessary to carry out the standard processes of putaway, retrieval/picking, packing and loading. What setting is for what function? How are the key files linked to the functions? Practice-based, example settings facilitate understanding of LFS and allow you to configure the parameters in your own warehouse.
