A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11880782B2) discloses a computer-implemented system for intelligent distribution of products. The system involves generating demand forecast data using a model trained to predict future demand, adjusting order quantities based on various factors like past sales statistics and current inventory levels, prioritizing orders based on constraints, assigning orders to locations based on inventory levels, and transferring excess quantities to other locations if a capacity limit is exceeded. The system aims to optimize product distribution efficiently.

Furthermore, the patent includes a computer-implemented method for intelligent product distribution, involving similar steps as the system, such as generating demand forecast data, prioritizing orders based on constraints, assigning orders to locations, and transferring excess quantities when necessary. The method utilizes rules or logistical regression models to prioritize orders and considers factors like location capacity and product popularity. By generating purchase orders based on the assigned quantities, the method streamlines the distribution process and ensures efficient inventory management. Overall, the patent outlines a comprehensive approach to intelligent product distribution using advanced forecasting models and strategic allocation strategies.
