Using a unique frequency-based model that considers historical data expressed both in quantity and customer order-lines, as well as other demand components impacting demand variability (day of week, seasonality, promotions, product launches, product life cycle), SO99+ provides a full view over demand distribution for an accurate planning


SO99+ allows – based on statistical analysis of various parameters – the automatic setting of average inventory level for each SKU in each location, to maintain customer service levels up to 99+%


SO99+ assigns a different service and inventory target to each SKU/ location, taking into consideration also an aggregate of all constraints, to minimize stock investment and storage space, while increasing service levels and net profit


SO99+ dynamically replenishes optimal inventory at each node to guarantee the planned service level in a multi-echelon network


  • SO99+ uses instead of a single possible reality about the processes time evolution, a future evolution described by probabilities distributions; this means that – although the initial condition is known – there are several ways the process can be continued, but some of them are more probable than others
  • Addressing with this statistical models the issues of volatile demand and starting from the assumption that this demand varies not just with the SKU, but in a strong relation between SKU and location, SO99+ brings the most correct possible forecasts, to get service levels of 99%+ and a significant stock reduction
