MBS Material Flow Management
Combustion by-products

MBS Power Generation provides efficient by-product management for different materials
like ash or FGD gypsum. The system supports the user with functionality that covers production forecasts and budgeting, generation, inventory control, logistics, billing and quality management. A seamless data exchange with ERP systems such as SAP
SD (Sales & Distribution) allows a straight-through processing of bills and invoices.

Fuel oil/ammonia/limestone

Coal-fired power plants require a number of additional substances such as limestone
or ammonia in the generation processes. Fuel oil plays an important role in starting
a generating unit. MBS also manages these and other materials. The MBS software
reads fill levels of tanks and silos via I&C systems interfaces. It triggers orders if
required and adjusts inventories automatically. The functional scope of this module
also includes contract settlements and invoicing functionalities.

MBS also supports the use of biomass and other substitutes for fossil fuels such as sewage sludge or refuse derived fuels. MBS offers an integrated handling of procurement, processing, consumption and accounting straight through to the invoicing processes. A particular focus is on compliance with limit requirements with regard to the chemical analysis of substitute fuels.
