Should I use 's after incoming flows in this sentence?

it is responsible for incoming flows management

or

it is responsible for incoming flows' management

I'm talking about data flows that enter a network. I'm talking about how these flows are managed by the network.

Difficult to say for certain without context - but I think you should use neither.

  • Incoming flow's management would be the management belonging to Incoming Flow. That doesn't make much sense.

  • Incoming flows management would be the management of multiple flows - how many flows do you have?

If you are talking about the flow of income (eg money received by a business), this is usually spoken of in the singular, even though it may come from many sources (eg "cashflow").

Therefore I think the term you should be using is simply Incoming flow management.
