LMS FF plus - Management of modern surfacing labs

The lab management system, LMS FF plus, defines the new standard in the operation of state-of-the-art freeform and Rx surfacing labs.
Developed to take full advantage of the SCHNEIDER freeform technology, the modern software architecture of LMS FF plus also allows for the seamless integration of third-party equipment. The modern network communication uses an advanced client-server philosophy which guarantees performance and flexibility to meet changing and expanding lab requirements.
The basic system consists of the modules Lens Order, Lens Calculation, Lens Controller, and Lens Device Server. It can easily be expanded by basic or advanced components like Sales & Distribution, Inventory & Warehouse, Reporting, and Edging & Glazing, respectively. Upcoming lab requirements for freeform production like lens design data transfer, data encryption,
click-fee handling, remote diagnosis, and integration of lens designs are seamlessly integrated. The modules of LMS FF plus join in a modern SCHNEIDER Control Center giving the lab supervisor easy access to all relevant data of the running lab processes.
