Smart Software to lead NESCON keynote address on Planning for the “Un-Plannable”.

Belmont, Mass., July 8, 2019 – Smart Software, Inc., provider of industry-leading demand forecasting, planning, and inventory optimization solutions, today announced that it will present at the NESCON 2019, New England Supply Chain Conference & Exhibition Keynote in Malborough, MA. The presentation is scheduled for Oct. 7, 12:15-1:30 PM.

Greg Hartunian, CEO of Smart Software, under the tittle “Planning for the Un-Plannable”, will present how to plan optimal inventory levels and purchase quantities for thousands of items, when demand is intermittent, constantly changing, or affected by unexpected events. Random, sporadic demand is the worst case scenario for planning and procurement, and leads to excess inventory levels, and costly stock outs. Greg will discuss traditional inventory planning and forecasting approaches, present practical examples of how they can fail, and share how probabilistic modeling methods can make a big difference to your bottom line. The Keynote is a good opportunity  to learn how to reduce stock outs and inventory costs, by leveraging data driven decisions that identify the financial trade-offs associated with changes in demand, lead times, service level targets, and costs.
