Fleet Control System manages Warehouse Vehicles: KiSoft FCS

Do you want to keep track of what’s going on in your fleet of warehouse vehicles and automated transporters? While having optimal control of them in digital form? KiSoft Fleet Control System (FCS) is a fleet management software for all manual and automated warehouse vehicles and transporters. Our software helps you keep a digital eye on your whole fleet and manage all your transport orders flexibly.

Your advantages with the fleet control system KiSoft FCS

The warehouse fleet is the mobile heart of every company. This includes all types of warehouse vehicles, from autonomous mobile robots to manually driven forklifts. They do the important task of getting things where they need to be in the warehouse or in production. A fleet control system manages, controls and coordinates all the transport orders in one system.

Our KiSoft FCS software is the perfect solution for universal fleet control. Your processes, stations and transport vehicles are individually adaptable. KiSoft FCS helps companies to digitally manage their fleet in the most optimal way.

When does it make sense to use fleet control system?

Fleet control software is essential for any company using several transport vehicles. Particularly with large fleets, it is difficult to manage all the tasks with manual documentation. Having a large number of parties involved makes fleet management complicated. With our fleet management software, the entire fleet is integrated perfectly into the fleet network.

“The functionality of KiSoft FCS is comparable to a flight control system, where very precise directions from the system ensure the smooth and efficient flow of traffic.”

The most important functions of the fleet control system KiSoft FCS

Intelligent traffic management

The fleet control system manages and monitors all the routes that are possible for the AMRs. From this, KiSoft FCS automatically selects the most suitable route for the respective vehicle. To increase efficiency, the routes are designed to allow double cycles. The vehicles respond quickly to obstacles, immediately adjusting their route to avoid a deadlock situation.

Intelligent order management

KiSoft FCS manages all transport orders and distributes them to the transport resources. When assigning the orders to the vehicles, the following parameters are considered:

  • Distance
  • Energy
  • Other upcoming transport orders

The prioritization of the orders is freely selectable and carried out as you want it.

Easy, rapid integration

Integrating the fleet management software is quick and easy. KiSoft FCS combines perfectly with other KNAPP systems. Thanks to standard interfaces, the fleet control software can also be integrated in external systems. Do you want to control different types of AMRs with one software? This is also not a problem. With KiSoft FCS, we support the VDA 5050 interface, among other things, as controller and agent. The software can also be used as a stand-alone. The generation of orders is based on defined processes or sensor signals.

KiSoft FCS: What the fleet managment system can do

KiSoft FCS makes it possible to efficiently see and control all available transport resources. This could be different AMRs, from different manufacturers, but also manual transport processes such as a forklift truck. Our software is naturally also a perfect match for our KNAPP Open Shuttles. In the warehouse or production facility, Open Shuttles transport cartons, containers and pallets – wherever and whenever they’re needed.

You decide what your Open Shuttle fleet should look like. You can have two shuttles, or more than 30 – the size of the fleet can be adapted to your current situation and changed at any time.

Fleet control software KiSoft FCS has a digital twin

KiSoft FCS has a digital twin to make it possible to simulate and test not only new systems but also any changes made to processes and existing systems before they are used in the real environment. Would you like to test and see what the effects of adding another autonomous mobile robot would be? Or perhaps you want to see if changing the delivery position would influence the transport efficiency in terms of time. With the digital twin, you can check the changes in the fleet control system in advance. The fleet management software can be operated intuitively. You can apply the test results to your next system start-up quickly and easily.
