Quick SPP Question


Hi there,

I have a quick question concerning the statistical forecasting method used in SPP for Sporadic Demand.

Some papers refer to the method as the "Sporadic Model" which in fact is very similar to the Crosston Method. Now, I would like to know if this "Sporadic Model" has anything to do with "Compound Poisson Method" used in many Best Practice samples like Caterpillar Logistics? Is it the same?
