“With Smart Software we are now able to more effectively communicate with our CM partners, despite the lack of forecastability in our business, and simultaneously reduce material cost and shorten lead times.”

 

Vice President, Kratos Space group

 

“The software allows us to identify parts that are outliers and then set the service level we want to offer our customers.  With that information, we can decide how much of that part we want to have on the shelf.”
