Demand Forecasting - Large Textile Manufacturer in UK
The Business Challenge/Situation
The client, a large textile manufacturer in UK, wanted to build a reliable model that complements or takes over their in house traditional approach to forecasting for their product lines. Currently, chunks of data are stored in multiple spreadsheets and this makes it very difficult for decision makers to aggregate and take decisions on time. Additionally, in-house models were built into these spreadsheets by managers who worked primarily on gut instinct. The Customer currently incurs huge spend caused due to stock outs, large inventory levels and resource costs.
The Analyses resulted in providing an automated system, managed by our team virtually, built with predictive models that resulted in a close to 60% accurate forecasting over a period of 6 months. Market Equations continues to engage the customer and is continuously reporting insights daily with a team of three full time Stat programmers.
