Transport control system 3.0

The transport control system 3.0 (TLS/TCS) in LFS allows you to significantly reduce the number of empty runs and optimize processes in the warehouse thanks to an intelligent stacker control system. This course teaches you how to configure LFS for use with the transport control system.

What are waypoints and routes and how do I create them? What options can I use to optimize the stacker control system for my processes? How do I manage priorities and extra trips? The course covers in detail both how to set up the start center plug-ins and how to use warehouse schedules to set up the TLS. Using various practical examples, the course covers all the relevant TLS settings with intensive practical exercises and consolidates acquired knowledge.
