The overall solution offers smart hardware and software solutions for monitoring and controlling the autonomous material flows on the entire shop floor. This already starts at the material inbound with the material registration. With the Scan&Label system, the manual receiving process, especially for SMD component reels, has been automated and now takes place without manual intervention. The material is provided with a customer UID label and automatically fed into the warehouses. This can be a central warehouse, but also automatic warehouses close to production, such as the DryTower or the Material Warehouse. If the material stocks of the production require it, the request in the form of picking lists is set automatically and according to demand and the material replenishment is triggered. Via manual and/or autonomous transport, e.g. driverless transport systems or trolleys, the material is delivered to the production lines just in time. The transport containers required for automatic material handling, e.g. magazines or containers for PCBs, component reels or trays, are part of the overall solution here. Clear dashboards throughout the production area inform and support the operator visually with direct access at the necessary points. Intermediate or finished products can always be temporarily stored and buffered, thus decoupling the individual process steps. Unneeded and obsolete material is also considered here and distributed to the various storage locations autonomously and/or manually accordingly. By recording and booking the material, the stocks are updated and booked to the storage locations. The clear user interfaces of the software
