Learn Probability Forecasting And Inventory Optimisation

View your supply chain as a dynamic system prone to uncertainty and unpredictability to better comprehend the link between probabilistic forecasting and inventory. Spreadsheets and legacy suites like SAP APO use a deterministic technique to generate top-down aggregated projections. While they are easy to understand, they provide consistently poor predicting outcomes in this scenario.

However, probabilistic forecasting does more than generate an average forecast; it identifies a range of possible outcomes and the likelihood of each option occurring. Inventory optimization tools may subsequently use this information to help determine the best inventory targets. Probability forecasting and inventory optimization may seem daunting, but this blog will show you how easy they can be to understand and use. 

Forecasting probabilities: what is it, and why is it important?

Most demand predictions are imperfect or incomplete: They supply one number: the most likely value of future demand. This is known as a point prediction. The point prediction typically forecasts the average value of future demand.

Forecasting the whole probability distribution of demand at every future period is far more valuable. This is substantially more valuable and is more frequently known as probability forecasting.

Forecasts are inherently unpredictable, and this uncertainty must be quantified and communicated to forecast consumers for them to make the best judgments possible. You may assess forecast uncertainty by making probability assertions about future observable events based on current predictions and previous observations and forecasts. 

Probabilistic forecasts can issue in a variety of formats, including as a set of probabilities for a discrete set of events, possibilities for counts of events, quantiles of a continuous variable, interval forecasts (pairs of quantiles), full probability density functions, or cumulative distribution functions, and forecasts for entire spatial maps. 

How to Choose the Right Forecasting Technique?

Many forecasting methodologies have been developed in recent years to address the increasing range and complexity of management forecasting challenges. Each has a specific use, and choosing the right approach for the job is essential. 

Many aspects influence technique selection, including the context of the forecast, the relevance and availability of previous data, the desired degree of accuracy, the time to be forecasted, the cost/benefit (or value) of the forecast to the firm, and the time available for analysis.
