The use, limits, and misuse of statistical models in different industries are propelling new techniques and best practices in forecasting. Until recently, many factors such as data collection and storage constraints, poor data synchronization capabilities, technology limitations, and limited internal analytical expertise have made it impossible to forecast intermittent demand. In addition, integrating consumer demand data (that is, point-of-sale [POS]/syndicated scanner data from ACNielsen/ Information Resources Inc. [IRI]/Intercontinental Marketing Services [IMS]) to shipment forecasts was a challenge.


This presentation by SAS' Charles Chase gives practical how-to advice on intermittent forecasting an..., using multi-tiered causal analysis (MTCA), that links demand to supply. The framework uses a process of nesting causal models together by using data and analytics.
