Case Study: Peerless Pump


Peerless Pump has been designing, engineering, and manufacturing pumps for more than 80 years. The company was basing component stock levels on historical data, as it did not have the ability to accurately forecast customer demand. But with forecasting and demand planning software that increased forecast accuracy, the company has nearly doubled its sales over the past four years, while keeping inventory levels constant.

JDA FOCUS 2010 Impressions - Part 2


Part 1 of this blog series talked about my attendance of the JDA FOCUS 2010 conference on the heels of the recent merger between JDA Software (NASDAQ: JDAS) and i2 Technologies.

Namely, ERP or  customer relationship management (CRM)  software will typically provide some automation and compliance reporting benefits, which make it harder for it to fail utterly.

Forecasting and demand shaping is certainly not an exact science, but Read More
