Belmont, Mass., May 17, 2018 – Smart Software, Inc., provider of industry-leading demand forecasting, planning, and inventory optimization solutions, today announced that the Spring 2018 issue of Foresight Magazine features Dr. Thomas Willemain’s article “Choosing and Achieving a Target Service Level.”  Len Tashman, Editor of Foresight states: “Tom Willemain describes the primary considerations for setting service-level targets, explaining how software can serve as a valuable aid in this endeavor and offering a case study to illustrate a relatively simple approach – what he calls “service level wins and losses” – by which a company can evaluate how well it is achieving its service level goals.  The case study also reveals how important it is to utilize appropriate probability models rather than rely on traditional defaults such as the Normal distribution of demands.”
