Efficiency has many dimensions,
OneBase®MFT increases them ALL!

Time Saving

Any non-value-added activity needs time that could be invested in value-adding activities. Take the step with ABF and experience how scanning, searching and assigning tasks with OneBase®MFT are a thing of the past.


Standardisation through Process Transparency

Standardization is a prerequisite for the transition to the digital age. The inventory and analysis of the current processes in the warehouse as well as the definition of ideal processes is very easy with the support of OneBase®MFT.


100% Stock Reliability

For many years, logistics managers have been developing improvised solutions to answer a trivial question: What's in the warehouse and where can I find it?

OneBase®MFT will not ask you for a question. A few clicks are enough and the entire warehouse is visualized. Real time. In 3D.


Increased Capacity

Incorporating forecast data, reduced manipulation areas and intelligent, chaotic storage, taking into account storage and retrieval strategies has the potential to increase storage capacity.


One Communication Network

Warehouse tours are important. Repeated warehouse tours per shift, merely to provide information, are completely unnecessary. With OneBase®MFT, all employees among each other as well as the administration team is connected with all employees.


Clear Division of Responsibilities

Agreements between forklift / crane operators at a simultaneous loading process, calls to deliver supplies and unnecessary movements to explore the location are things of the past. OneBase®MFT automatically generates transportation orders and instantly displays them in the optimum sequence at the terminal in the means of transport. Increased efficiency is guaranteed!

ur 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 3DThe 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.

Clients

The forklift guidance system 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.
