Challenges with
Warehouse, Yard, and Facility Asset Visibility

Today, the standard method employed to track manufacturing velocity and dwell/detention times in warehouses and yards is inefficient due to:

Challenge #1

RFID's "line of sight" requirement for accurate reads and extensive infrastructure requirement in the facility.

Challenge #2

RFID’s dependence on standard operating procedures for movement of Kanban bins, molds, forklifts, etc.

Challenge #3

Lack of live data visualizations on process chokes, manufacturing velocity, and ship date ETA changes.

How Roambee's Solution Works for Warehouse, Yard, & Facility Assets

Step 1: Visibility

Better visibility by combining production planning, WMS, TMS, and order information with real-time, zone-level location and condition data of Kanban bins, molds, sub-assemblies, or finished goods tagged with IoT sensors.

Step 2: Alerts & Signals

Built on verifiable visibility, alerts & signals empower better decisions and drive automation. For example, a business signal on work-in-process (WIP) status is derived by sensing the manufacturing milestone/stage to enable timely order shipping.

Step 3: Intelligence

Use AI-powered network insights & foresights for better supply chain planning & execution. For example, assess production line chokepoints by zone, SKU, and factory and forecast this key performance indicator (KPI).

Business Outcomes with Roambee

  • Improve your customer experience with firm delivery commitments by forecasting work-in-process (WIP) inventory status at production or warehousing stages and ship date ETAs.
  • Improve manufacturing velocity and warehouse/yard throughput with better inventory management.
  • Utilize Kanban bins, molds, forklifts, and other facility assets effectively to reduce your asset investment at scale.
  • Compress turnaround times (TAT) in packaging, storage, yard, and shipping operations.

Empowering You with Our Intelligence


  • Production or warehouse/yard processing time by stages.
  • Chokepoints in the manufacturing line or warehouse/yard and across factories.
  • SLA violation patterns in movement of Kanban bins, forklifts, molds, or sub-assemblies.


  • Ship date ETA prediction for SKUs.
  • Stage completion ETAs in manufacturing.
  • SLA violation predictions of assets by zone or facility.


A large automotive OEM with sub-assembly lines witnessed choke points and inefficiencies, leading to inaccurate estimation of the production schedules during a particular day, week, or month. It further generates downstream delays through a bullwhip effect in logistics planning and fulfillment of customer orders. With Roambee's intelligence, they transformed their manufacturing by accurately diagnosing that the slowest and fastest processes varied heavily (about 57%). They further analyzed that just two lines were to be optimized by 18% to run all sub-assembly lines in synchrony to prevent inventory pileups.
