Predict the future using Predixion data mining and PowerPivot
In my previous blog post I checked what the key influencer is for having a lot of stock using PowerPivot and Predixion Insight for Excel. Now i want to see what the number of units on stock will do in the future. I want to see this by country for the next 6 months.
We start in Excel, i have again loaded the same tables as before into PowerPivot containing the Factinventory and a table containing country’s and stores. This time we are going to use PowerPivot indirect since the data in PowerPivot is not really suited for the Forecast, besides we want to use an aggregated value for this and not all individual 8 million records we used before.
