Reinventing the agile digital future by leveraging the power of digital to transform.
Heightened customer expectations, new digital realities, more disruptive competitors and new models and ecosystems are upon us. To succeed in the new digital world, manufacturers of every size and shape must transform their execution and go-to-market models in order to succeed, investing in advanced digital manufacturing capabilities to ensure long-term market leadership.
Jabil leverages the power of digital to transform how we design, make and deliver products and services for Jabil and our customers.
A 50-year veteran of manufacturing innovation, Jabil’s digital story features countless proof points:
Radius Design and Development, our product innovation consultancy, works closely with customers to bring initial product ideas to life. Using the latest AR/VR technologies, teams of brand and product strategists, human factors specialists and product designers collaborate around the world to perfect products in the virtual world before bringing them into real-world manufacturing environments. The result: Big gains in operational efficiencies, reduced risk, lowered cost and faster time to market.
Through Additive Manufacturing, Jabil is maximizing the latest advancements in 3D printing to envision completely new ways of designing and making products. 3D printing is a critical enabler of digital manufacturing as production can be moved from one location to another simply by sending a digital file. The proof points are compelling:
Breakeven points up to 40,000 units
19 part-iterations completed in the time it would take to do one
Parts that once cost $20 to make can be produced with 3DP for less than $6
Parts are 70% lighter since it can be printed as one part to eliminate sub-parts, screws, and assembly.
Jabil’s Intelligent Digital Supply Chain was among the first focus areas of our digitization efforts. We realized early on that orchestrating the movement of nearly one million parts over a global network of more than 17,000 suppliers sourced from over 30 countries required real-time intelligence, visibility and data analytics. Today, with our award-winning InControl analytics and decision support platform, we help streamline global supply chains – mitigating risk and optimizing decision making - for 350 of the world’s largest customers.
Jabil Digital Engineering Services is making major strides in advancing the use of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Predictive Analytics to enable new levels of product personalization while slashing the time and cost to bring a product from ideation to full commercialization. Jabil’s overarching Digital Product Lifecycle Management strategy will leverage cutting-edge technology to make our factories even smarter as we streamline operations from start to finish.
