How to Build your Demand Forecasting application

Data Preparation

For Demand Forecasting data preparation steps visit here
We have provided a sample data set, which contains 7 different attributes or features and target label namely demand. The value of target label is demand of the product on given date.

Build App

  1. Go to the app store, build a lead score app by searching for Demand Forecasting
  2. You will be redirected to the app settings page where you can configure and run the app

    3.2. Select the target field, the field that indicates the demand.
  4. Now click on Run Now to start the app. The app may run for 5 to 20 minutes (dependending on the size of input data) and then the trained model will be saved.
  5. Use this model to get the demand prediction
    5.1. Click on Build App on the model to build the inference app using that model
    5.2. Provide the input in the given fields and click on Get Results. The predicted demand of product will be displayed on the right side of the screen.
