I'm pretty new to John Galt but have a lot of demand planning experience and experience in other tools such as SAP APO and Manugistics. Overall there are some good things and some not so good things I've found in working with the John Galt system. As far as history loads, cleansing, and statistical forecast generation it seems fairly standard but to I've found it can be difficult to try and manage forecasts at multiple levels. As I am new, a lot of it may be the configuration of the tool rather than the tool itself but I am still trying to sort that out.
- Fairly easy to use
- Easy to customize views
- With regular history, the statistical modeling seems to do a decent job
- Managing model parameters is more difficult and less intuitive than I have seen in other systems
- The database sits outside of our company/our control so trying to troubleshoot data issues is complicated
- There doesn't seem to be a way to group together a subset of items, for example, to update the forecast at once. Without having to create a new hierarchy. If there is a way, again it is no intuitive
- The manual and online help are not very helpful and don't seem to help answer questions I have
