  4. SBIR Phase I: Parts Forecasting for Configurable Products

    SBC: Emcien, Inc.            Topic: EO

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project addresses the impact of product variety on parts inventories. The goal is to help the manufacturers of configurable products; these are products that have many different configurations, or variants, or build combinations. These variants arise because the product has a large number of features/options or the customer is given choices ov ...
