Jabil had four patents in digitalization during Q1 2024.Jabil Inc filed a patent for an apparatus, system, and method for supply chain management (SCM) system processing. The SCM operating platform is connected to SCM modules to collect, store, distribute, and process SCM data for analyzing statistical opportunities and risks within the SCM hierarchy. The system includes SCM risk processing to determine risk values based on SCM attributes, allowing users to drill down into multiple risk processing results. Additionally, the system can generate SCM network nodes, their relationships, and statuses for quick and efficient status determination.

The patent filed by Jabil Inc. describes an apparatus, system, and method for supply chain management (SCM) system processing. The SCM operating platform is connected to SCM modules to collect, store, distribute, and process SCM data to identify statistical opportunities and risks within a SCM hierarchy. The system includes SCM risk processing to determine risk values based on SCM attributes, allowing for multiple results to be generated for further analysis by a user. Additionally, the system can produce SCM network nodes, their relationships, and statuses for quick and efficient status determination.

One of the key claims of the patent is a supply chain platform that includes a primary node with at least one supply chain node connected to data sources and external nodes. The supply chain node has a processor and memory storing instructions for operations such as accumulating part data from external nodes and data sources, receiving user preferences, generating interfaces based on preferences, and performing heuristic fuzzy logic searches to match data entered by the user. If the match fails a correctness threshold, the user is prompted to make a correction, with subsequent corrections used to train the fuzzy logic system. This claim highlights the innovative approach of using fuzzy logic and user input to improve data accuracy and efficiency in supply chain management processes.
