Yes, it can. Filing a patent application is a Specific action that is Measurable; you get a formal filing receipt indicating that your application fulfilled all the filing requirements and is now pending. If you are committed to working with your patent counsel, filing a patent application is Achievable. If you are trying to protect an invention that you intend to become commercialized, filing a patent application is Relevant, and if you commit to an absolute deadline on when the filing should occur, then it is Timely.
