Jabil's Intelligent Supply Chain

Jabil's Intelligent Supply Chain team supports all Planning team and Supply Chain Management team functions in architecting, building and supporting supply chain processes and tool sets that enable and improve capabilities and logistics supply efficiencies. The Intelligent Supply Chain team provides total landed cost analyses to support footprint and business placement decisions.

Supply Chain Solutions Development

The team is accountable for developing toolsets to identify trends, perform what-if analysis, highlight and prioritize opportunities in planning, sourcing & procurement, logistics, inventory management and quality. The team utilizes two primary processes: a) supply chain solutions architecture to identify, prototype and manage supply chain toolsets and b) incubation of the supply chain solutions for quick development and deployment of toolsets followed by continuous logistics and supply chain management improvement. Jabil's globally integrated supply chain processes, systems and infrastructure enable end-to-end supply chain solutions that drive lowest-landed cost and complete supply chain visibility.

Supply Chain Network Design and Optimization

Jabil provides customers with world class supply chain network design and optimized supply chain solutions through its proprietary, predictive activity-based simulation and optimization tools and processes. The supply chain solutions comprise total landed costs within desired and real-world operating constraints, inclusive of lead times, manufacturing models, service levels, order fulfillment and inventory policies. Supply chain solutions include deterministic and stochastic sensitivity analysis of macroeconomic indicators, such as changes in energy costs, currency exchange rates, inflation, transportation and labor rates.

Supply Chain Tool Development

Jabil strives to continuously improve logistics supply and procurement by developing next generation processes and IT supply chain systems, as well as enhancing existing infrastructure tools.

Electronics Sourcing

Global Commodity Management

Jabil manages its electronics commodity portfolio at the global level. This aggregated global consolidated spend leverage optimizes total cost consideration, supply chain and management flexibility and drives maximum efficiencies in strategic sourcing decisions.

Logistics and Supply Chain Cost Management

Jabil conducts regular and consistent contract reviews to ensure competitive market tension forces are always in play. Jabil also tailors specific commodity approaches and supply chain solutions and strategies based on market intelligence, customer dynamics and industry served. Jabil's continued commitment to developing deeper more meaningful relationships with supply chain suppliers to drive the best cost, coupled with the most efficient supply chain logistics is paramount in the overall strategy for Jabil's Electronics Sourcing team.

Logistics

Supply Chain Architecture Models for Planning

Jabil understands that the same planning process won't fit all customers. The Advanced Planning Team listens to customer goals, maps existing supply chain processes and uses planning and analytical tools to design a supply chain capable of meeting customer-specific requirements for reliability, responsiveness, agility and cost. Customized supply chain solutions are based on three primary Supply Chain Architecture models that Advanced Planning supports:

  • Demand-Driven Supply Chain
  • Build-to-Forecast
  • Build/Configure-to-Order
  • Order Fulfillment
  • On-Time Delivery Achievement

On-Time Delivery Achievement

Jabil is dedicated to modeling supply chains and inventory management planning processes based on each customer's on-time delivery goals to their customer. By applying advanced statistical demand planning models to historical order fulfillment requirements, the Advanced Planning team focuses on engaging in a collaborative Sales and Operational Planning process that uses Jabil proprietary IT supply chain tools to ensure each customer's metric achievement.

Strategic Inventory Management Placement and Pull System Implementation

The Advanced Planning team within Jabil works with customers on developing strategic inventory management plans that place the right inventory, at the right place in the supply chain, at the right moment in time. This is done with an eye to supporting on-time delivery while maximizing working capital and inventory investments. Tailored supply chain solutions are developed with suppliers to reduce effective lead times within the supply chain management base, improve flexibility and responsiveness, and focus on total cost of inventory ownership.

Material Pipeline Management

Jabil utilizes a sophisticated suite of analytic tools to identify material and capacity constraints in the supply chain. These logistic and supply chain management tools rapidly analyze multiple schedule or priority changes and provide commitment to customer requested delivery dates and quantities. These inventory management tools peg supply chain constraints from individual SKU's or product families to individual resources or components for proactive constraint management and order fulfillment escalation.

Systemic Excess and Obsolete Supply Chain Management

Jabil's single Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution significantly reduces customers' exposure to the unforeseen costs of excesses and obsolescence. From quote through the end of product life, each change in demand and corresponding excess and obsolete exposure in the supply chain process is identified. Jabil's unique supply chain management business model and centralized toolset allow real time, "What If," analysis and our systemic supply chain solutions approach is focused on rapid exchange of information, focused on elimination rather than reporting.

Advanced Supply Chain and Management Planning

Jabil's Advanced Planning group is tasked with planning Supply Chain Architecture models tailored to each customer's on-time delivery, order fulfillment and working capital goals.
