Ensemble Sales Forecasting Study in Semiconductor Industry

  title={Ensemble Sales Forecasting Study in Semiconductor Industry},
  author={Qiuping Xu and Vikas Kumar Sharma},
Sales forecasting plays a prominent role in business planning and business strategy. [...] Key Method Benefit from the recent advances in computation power and software development, millions of models built upon multiple regressions, time series analysis, random forest and boosting tree were executed in parallel. The models with smaller validation errors were selected to form the ensemble model. To better capture the distinct characteristics, forecasting models were implemented at lead time and lines of…Expand
