Demand Forecasting

Chapter of: Inventory Analytics(pp. 75–116)
In this chapter, we discuss predictive analytics techniques for demand forecasting in inventory control. The techniques surveyed in this chapter originate in the realm of time series analysis and forecasting. We first introduce the notion of time series, then we survey a portfolio of time series models. We show how to fit these models to data and how to generate forecasts, confidence and prediction bands.
