Microsoft has announced that Jabil, a design and manufacturing solution provider, has built its predictive analytics solution on Microsoft Azure Machine Learning.

Because the new platform predicts errors or failures on the assembly floor before they occur, it saves customers time and money and shortens the product lead times throughout the supply chain, according to officials of the two companies. Jabil has rolled out the platform at its sites in Penang, Malaysia, and Guadalajara, Mexico, and plans to deploy the solution to its facilities worldwide.

Collaborating with Microsoft, Jabil is using Azure services to analyze millions of data points from machines running dozens of steps throughout the manufacturing process, officials said. Azure Machine Learning enables Jabil to help predict failures earlier in the process, e.g., step two in a 32-step process instead of step 15, according to officials.
