The material flow control system implements partially or fully automated material flow operations. It coordinates, if necessary also optimizes, the sequence of tasks to be performed and controls the source-target relationships in which individual (transport) orders, processes, etc. are managed. Subordinate controls are addressed for this purpose. The material flow control can be an integrated module of a WMS or installed as a separate trade/system. A material flow control system takes over all tasks of the transport management, a special form of the transport management is the forklift guidance system.
