Jabil Circuit, Inc. announced the introduction of InControl, a new Supply Chain SaaS Decision Support platform. With InControl, customers can quickly and easily connect, collect and validate vast amounts of supply chain data to realize tangible business outcomes throughout the product lifecycle, including slashing inventory and time-to-market by up to 50 percent while reducing product lead times and costs by up to 30 percent.

“Today’s supply chains and tools aren’t architected to effectively address all of the requirements our customers need to compete and win in an increasingly digital ecosystem,” said Don Hnatyshin, SVP and chief supply chain and procurement officer for Jabil. “InControl was designed for, and by, supply chain practitioners to provide the real-time intelligence, visibility and analytics our customers have been asking for so they can move with B2C speed and agility in a B2B world.”

Jabil’s InControl SaaS is a multi-tenant, intelligent digital supply chain cloud platform that provides ubiquitous connectivity, advanced analytics and machine learning technologies to optimize real-time decision-making for supply chain practitioners. The cloud platform also ingests structured and unstructured data across the entire ecosystem, connecting with ERP, MRP, sales & operations planning, transportation, financial reporting, and third-party content providers, including weather, geo-mapping and other software.

In concert with the cloud platform, Jabil has developed five integrated applications to provide much-needed visibility, collaboration, risk management and diagnostics:

Supply Chain Visibility: Gain valuable insight through real-time reports and alerts on orders, compliance, event risk, problem resolution and financial performance
Event Risk: Minimize loss from unforeseen disruptions by recovering faster through instant alerts, impact analyses and detailed recovery options
Design for Supply Chain: Understand the impact of different product decisions and avoid high-risk components through early assessments during product design and prototyping stage
Risk Management: Reduce vulnerability and ensure proactive continuity through dynamic and customized risk scoring that weighs availability, complexity, delivery and other critical supply chain risk factors
Supply Chain Diagnostics: Gain deep actionable insights across the demand and supply network to improve sourcing and partner collaboration while delivering root cause analysis of missed KPIs and key metrics

“Jabil InControl provides an upfront, end-to-end supply chain analysis that helps us achieve the total landed cost on our broad product portfolio,” said Ed Tymick, vice president of global operations for Coriant. “Real-time business insights guide decisions on where to build and distribute our game-changing telecom solutions while addressing key localization factors that impact sourcing, procurement and manufacturing of sub-materials and components to reduce overall costs and product lead times.”

As part of its go-to-market model, Jabil’s specialized supply chain, procurement and professional services will assist customers in deploying InControl. Additionally, Jabil has entered into a joint business relationship with PwC, a leading professional services and advisory firm, to integrate the InControl Supply Chain SaaS Supply Chain Decision Support solution in its ongoing digital transformation advisory, supply chain planning and management consulting services.

“Digital transformation of the supply chain must be about readiness, return and relevance,” said Simon Ellis, program vice president, Supply Chain Strategies, IDC. “Making investments in technology and platforms will help companies achieve early-mover advantage. Jabil’s InControl SaaS helps address critical business requirements with its visibility, risk and collaboration capabilities for enabling intelligent decision support across the entire digital supply chain.”

Beginning in the third quarter, Jabil’s InControl SaaS platform and applications will be generally available for customer implementations. The platform and applications will be priced on a per month/per application model. InControl onboarding, integration and implementation services also are available.

Jabil Launches Innovation Acceleration Services

Written by

Jabil Circuit announced the introduction of new Innovation Acceleration Services. These services enable customers to respond faster to changing product and market demands while reducing risks and costs associated with design, supply chain, manufacturing and compliance challenges.

“Innovating at the speed of digital requires continual application of new technologies, automation, analytics and manufacturing know-how,” says Bill Muir, chief operating officer at Jabil. “We’re developing a complete ecosystem of digital connections to create new business opportunities, improve experiences and deliver added value, from start to finish.”

To help customers compete more effectively in the digital economy, Jabil offers a Digital Prototype Lab (DPL) and associated services to deliver unmatched speed-to-innovation, Managed Supply Chain Services to improve supply chain visibility and mitigate risk, Managed Procurement Services to boost purchasing efficiencies and drive cost savings, and 3D printing and additive manufacturing services to accelerate new product introductions for large-scale production.

The Radius DPL is a full-service, rapid prototyping facility led by Radius, an innovation and development consulting firm acquired by Jabil in 2012. The DPL adds competitive value to customers with complete user insight, design, build, analysis and testing services offered under one roof. A cross-functional team drives unmatched concept and UX/UI development, speed-to-innovation, digital service delivery design and go-to-market capabilities. The DPL is fitted with state-of-the-art equipment, including 3D printing; CT scanning; 5-axis CNC machining; finish, paint and assembly; and clean room and testing facilities. Integrated Radius strategy, research, design, engineering and implementation services rapidly iterate, build and test innovative customer ideas, enabling proof-of-concept models to be produced in as little as five weeks.

Powered by Jabil’s InControl™ Intelligent Digital Supply Chain and Procurement Intelligence Platform, new managed services take advantage of Jabil’s industry and domain expertise, orchestrating over 700,000 parts across a global network of more than 17,000 suppliers sourced from more than 30 countries. With Jabil’s Procurement Services, organizations gain access to proven purchasing strategies, advanced sourcing capabilities, as well as execution and purchasing support to achieve Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) leadership. The services are amplified by Jabil’s global spend of more than $15 billion annually across a diverse set of products and applications in the industrial, energy, automotive, communication, consumer and healthcare industries.

In addition, the new Supply Chain Services enable customers to reduce supply chain risk and increase visibility while improving supply chain speed and agility. To optimize supply chain networks, Jabil assimilates structured and unstructured data to allow user-defined scenario planning and network optimization modeling. This provides insights and expedited responses to changes in demand patterns, supply sources, tax laws, currencies, etc. Additionally, Jabil’s Managed Compliance and Conflict Minerals Service addresses regulations concerning conflict minerals with seamless access to supplier data, declarations and compliance reporting.

Jabil is also paving a path to the future by defining best practices and consulting services to accelerate additive manufacturing for large-scale production. With 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions, Jabil applies extensive experience with the latest 3D printing technologies, backed by a half-century of manufacturing expertise, to change how products are made. Capabilities include materials development and qualification, process development and validation as well as supply chain integration. By using 3D printing instead of traditional manufacturing methods, companies can expedite time-to-market by up to seven weeks. Moreover, customers have realized cost savings of more than 50 percent.

“We are excited to unveil these value-added digital services to help both new and existing customers complete their innovation cycles in a fraction of the time,” says Muir. “Jabil is uniquely positioned to drive digital transformations, creating new avenues of business growth and enhanced revenue streams.” Muir formally introduced the new services at Jabil’s Analyst & Investor Meeting in St. Petersburg.
