I like that JDA helps create a forecast framework after entering in metric guidelines that is relevant for my business. I like that there is a wide range of metric to choose from as well as different views tro set up to help read the business. I like the level of detail I can drill down to. Week/Month/ etc.
What do you dislike?
Sometimes JDA miscalculates a formula or uses a different calculation ( Ex: Turn). I have to lock the metrics I dont want changing. If for some reason a metric like sales doesn't post or download the forecast will be off. Each metric feeds off the other so its important to know how each one is calculated so you do not misread the forecast.

Try to get as much of the program as possible instead of an editied version. The more options you have the better global picture you will have.

I am trying to create an inventory plan as to not lose sales or have too much excess inventory. It has helped me realize what weeks and months I need to cut back on.
