Ask.Lokad and get answers

Published on by Joannes Vermorel.

Although some of you might have already noticed, we did quietly launch ask.lokad.com about one month ago as a replacement of our old forums that were suffering several terminal Web 1.0 design syndrome.

Ask.Lokad is powered by StackExchange, the engine behind StackOverflow the most popular Q/A forum for programming matters.

We have decided to revamp our forums, because we were getting the feeling that most simple questions such Should I consider working days or calendar days for lead time? or Why does ASA get negative when the number of agents get below call intensity? tend to be poorly addressed on the web.

Although, answers are probably buried in textbooks somewhere, our ambitions is to make this sort of knowledge as openly reachable as possible.

Have a question about forecasting, or about the usage of forecasts in your business? Don't hesitate to post on Ask.Lokad, we do our best to get all questions addressed. Then, as Lokad does not have a monopoly over smart people, the community can also challenge our answers with their own.
