V-LINE marks anniversary with conference and Smart keynote.

During the “User Conference: Spare Parts Inventory Planning and Optimization,” topics like vested outsourcing and digital MRO supply chain orchestration were discussed with the participation of Jeff Scott, our vice president of business development at Smart Software.

Jeff discussed the practical process of optimizing spares inventory policies, particularly the challenge of addressing seemingly unforecastable intermittent demand.  He reviewed common approaches, their failings, and the value of taking a different approach with probabilistic modeling and improved statistical methods.  If you would like to learn more, a good place to start is Smart Software’s recent webinar on Intermittent Demand – click here to view the replay.
