Besides the automation of production as such, infastructural measures for the automation of the material flow in production become more important all the time. The objective is to integrate machines and workstations into a well coordinated supply and disposal process (with respect to time and quantity). With the selektron system, interfaces to ERP systems dispatch the production orders. The orders are directed through manufacturing according to the internal requirements, with regard to strategies, as workstation connection, Just in Time or Just in Sequence. Capacity scheduling of the individual workstations is also considered.
The connection of machines and handling devices, the control of the conveyor system at the workstation and the automatic feedback (PDA/MDA) provide for an integrated solution.
