What functions do the tugger train control with the FlexGuide provide
The tugger train concept is based on a flexible number of trailers on your trips. Therefore, in addition to optimised control, the FlexGuide also takes into account integrated trailer management. The current location, the loading status and the respective content of the trailer can be managed with the transport guidance system. This maps the loading of the tugger train trailers with containers, reserves the trailer types with different loading capacities and assigns them to the respective route. The software takes into account the different loading and unloading processes on the route over time.
Orders are determined directly in SAP, taking into account your working time models, breaks, planned times and much more. planned times and much more. The tugger train control enables you to schedule fixed, fully dynamic and permanent tours for the tugger trains. The scheduled orders are visualised in a clear cockpit and can also be edited here. In this way, you can assign the driving jobs to the driver in such a way that all jobs are processed on time.
