The complete solution for your warehouse and production logistics

Our intralogistics solution OneBase - MFT integrates a powerful warehouse management system (WMS) with a continuous material tracking and a fully automatic, situation-adaptive material flow control for all internal logistics processes.

Lageransicht 3D

The proven ABF intralogistics solution offers standardized functions for continuous material tracking and material flow control. MFT allows to track and control different types of forklifts, cranes, tractors and tugger trains. MFT optimizes your intralogistics in manual but also in automatic block and rack storages. The included means of transport management provides information about all relevant fleet data.

Due to automatically posted stock operations, the material gets tracked throughout the whole warehouse. This gives you an exact overview and complete transparency of the position of every single piece within the logistics chain at all times. A forklift control system and a comprehensive warehouse management system are part of the OneBase - MFT Intralogistics Suite which runs on the OneBase platform. Optimization algorithms and a dynamic, adaptive set of rules ensure the continuous calculation of the necessary driving orders for all necessary in-house material transports. This optimized situation dynamic real-time behaviour leads to an efficient use of the available storage and transport capacities and ensures efficient material flow.

Modular Structure

The system is modular and can roughly be divided into 4 following modules:

Clients:

The forklift guidance system and the crane guidance system integrate the RTLS and the sensors for the automatic detection of material movements with the vehicle terminal via a control box. In a graphical user interface, the user is supported in his work by means of drive orders and a graphical warehouse view.

The Administrator module (the MFT Desktop application) is available for administration tasks on stationary and mobile operator panels. Administration tasks include e.g. material management, transport management, order management.

The configurator is used for warehouse configuration during the setup and expansion phase of the system.

 

Server:

All material bookings, whether automatically requested by the means of transport itself (transport control system) or by administrator clients (handheld scanners / tablets), are carried out via the central warehouse manager first, made persistent afterwards and reported to the ERP in the end.


All modules have a very high degree of configurability and can also be adapted to specific customer requirements by means of individual developments.

Time for innovation in your intralogistics

The OneBase – MFT logistics solution integrates a high performance warehouse management system, with continual material tracking and a fully automatic, situation adaptive, material flow control for the in-plant logistics processes.

 

The OneBase - MFT logistics solution got awarded in the realization of the voestalpine Austria Wire Rod GmbH with the following Success Story and the 2nd place at the VNL Logistics Award in 2015:

Warehouse management

Coillagerung
  • Receipt of goods
  • Integration of production units
  • Stock management
  • Warehousing / removal from warehouse / restoring
  • Picking
  • Inventory support
  • Loading and dispatch

 

From receipt of goods and integrated production units, to the logistics processes of the various storage levels right up to picking, preparation for dispatch and loading; with OneBase – MFT we offer you an extensive and high performance complete solution for all functional requirements of your logistics processes and sequences.

MaterialTtracking

Staplerleitsystem
  • Material tracking on storage space level
  • In the coordinate system to the precise centimetre 
  • Vehicle location & vehicle tracking 
  • Integration of the vehicle sensors
  • Traceability of all movements
  • Collision warning system 
  • Visualisation system in 3D

 

No matter whether you transport your material with fork lift trucks, cranes, FTS or fully automated stacker cranes; all vehicles, means of transport and materials are tracked online.

On the basis of this tracking, the warehousing processes are booked automatically. In this way you always have an overview of where each individual part is within your logistics chain.

Material Flow Control

Materialflusssteuerung mit Regelwerk
  • Controlling fully automatic cranes
  • Integration of RBG, FTS 
  • Fork lift truck control system 
  • Dynamic selection of means of transport
  • Automatic target site identification
  • Transport and storage optimisation
  • Diagnosis & simulation

 

Optimisation algorithms and a dynamic, adaptive set of rules automatically ensure the continual calculation of the necessary driving orders, for quick handling of all necessary in-plant material transports. 

This situation dynamic, optimised real time behaviour leads to efficient usage of the available warehousing and transport capacities.
