Abrégé

A software system operates to track transit times for shipments between facility locations within a supply chain. Carrier service level agreements are used to generate estimated transit times between a plurality of origins and destinations. Transit times are stored as edges between ZIP code nodes in a graph database. Facility locations are associated with the ZIP code node corresponding to their location. A user interface can access the data from the graph database to easily present the data to a user. In some examples, the data is stored based on ZIP code of each location. The user interface allows for 3 digit ZIP codes to be assigned to various user-defined regions to more easily manage the data on a broader level. Estimated transit times can also be accessed through an application programming interface for use by transportation management systems such as lead time estimation systems and inventory planning systems.

Abrégé

Event-based replenishment simulation for an enterprise supply chain is described. On a per item, per node, per epoch basis, the simulation may generate a stream of action events based on forecasted demand, supply chain logic, and policy inputs that are applied to a current-run state of the supply chain in order to yield a stream of observation events. Requested metrics may be received, and the observation events may then be transformed to predict values for the metrics as output of the simulation. The simulation may be repeated for a given epoch using discrete demand values from a demand distribution, for a plurality of epochs, and/or across a plurality of items at a plurality of nodes. Resultantly, the simulation output can be used for predicting a future run-state of the supply chain across items and nodes.

Abrégé

In some implementations, a method performed by data processing apparatuses includes receiving map data that identifies a layout of physical objects within a physical area, identifying contiguous groups of the physical objects as composite objects, selecting bounding algorithms to use for generating graphical shapes for the composite objects, generating graphical shapes by applying the selected bounding algorithms to the composite objects, and testing the graphical shapes against one or more criteria. For candidate graphical shapes that fail a test, a new bounding algorithm can be selected and the generating and the testing can be repeated using the new bounding algorithm. A simplified graphical map can be output that represents the physical objects within the physical area using the graphical shapes.

Abrégé

Methods and systems are described for optimizing markdown schedules for clearance items at physical retail stores. For example, price sensitivity of a current inventory item at a physical retail store may be modeled using techniques that account for differences in operating behavior and data availability at physical stores versus online channels for selling items. When the current item is placed on clearance at the physical retail store, a request for a markdown schedule, including goals for the clearance, may be received. The forecasted price sensitivity of the current item may be adjusted based on actual price sensitivity of one or more past clearance items (e.g., based on actual clearance sales data) determined to match the current item. An optimal markdown schedule for the item may then be determined based, at least in part, on the adjusted price sensitivity of the item and clearance goals.

Abrégé

Methods and systems for execution of data operations in a queue are described. One method includes loading a pointer to a record in a lock-free ring buffer by an executing thread, as well as calculating an index from the pointer to a record to be processed and obtaining a header of the record to be processed. Based on the header, a state of the record to be processed is determined from among: a filled state, a filling state, a drained state, and a draining state. A candidate header is created which includes an updated state indicating that the record is in use by the executing thread. An atomic operation is performed to update the header of the record to the candidate header. Upon successful completion of the atomic operation to update the header of the record to the candidate header, a data operation is performed on the record.

Abrégé

The present disclosure is directed to a system and method for viewing jobs managed by heterogeneous job schedulers on heterogeneous computing systems. Organizations often rely on workflow schedulers or job schedulers to execute and manage their workflow pipelines. However, different departments within a large organization may rely on different job scheduling applications for managing their workflows. Without the capability to monitor and manage all or a subset of jobs running on heterogeneous job scheduling applications across the organization at the same time, organizations lack the insight they need to make their workflow pipeline more efficient. The disclosed system and method allows users to monitor jobs or computer applications, including details regarding job execution and service level agreements, running on heterogeneous job schedulers across the organization.

Abrégé

Methods and systems for managing attribute data for shipping and handling within a retail supply chain are disclosed. Item attributes of new items are recorded upon first receipt at a distribution center and are stored in a local database. This attribute data is synchronized to a centralized database. Data from the centralized database is pushed out to other distribution centers. The use of a centralized database of item attributes streamlines the process of inputting data for new items. This database is accessible by multiple systems with the supply chain to determine how the items should be processed. A pathfinding system utilizes item attribute data and facility data to determine a processing route for each item passing through a distribution facility.

Abrégé

Systems and methods for automating image annotations are provided, such that a large-scale annotated image collection may be efficiently generated for use in machine learning applications. In some aspects, a mobile device may capture image frames, identifying items appearing in the image frames and detect objects in three-dimensional space across those image frames. Cropped images may be created as associated with each item, which may then be correlated to the detected objects. A unique identifier may then be captured that is associated with the detected object, and labels are automatically applied to the cropped images based on data associated with that unique identifier. In some contexts, images of products carried by a retailer may be captured, and item data may be associated with such images based on that retailer's item taxonomy, for later classification of other/future products.

Abrégé

Examples disclosed herein are relevant to systems, methods, and other technology for determining furniture compatibility. For example, graph neural networks (GNNs) that leverage relational information between furniture items in a set may be used as models to predict a compatibility score indicative of visual compatibility of furniture items across the set. In one implementation, the GNN-based model can extend the concept of a siamese network to multiple inputs and branches and use a generalized contrastive loss function. In another implementation, the GNN-based model learns both an edge function and the function that generates the compatibility score. The predicted compatibility score can be used for a variety of purposes, including furniture item recommendations.
