Business Situation:

Clients 70% to 80% of daily beverage production depends on empty bottle returns from previous day. As such, a highly accurate forecast
for daily bottle returns across all SKUs was required for optimal production planning.
The Task:
Design, develop and implement a predictive model that will help in forecasting daily empty bottle returns for 10 different SKUs.
Analytical Framework:
Data preparation for model building. Past sales data or production data didn't have much effect on the returns data and thus past 2 years
return data was used for the model building. Different models like ARIMA, Holt Winters, Year on Year growth model were built to forecast the
returns.
The Result:
For all the SKUs considered, an accuracy of 75% was achieved for May-June 2011. This was significantly better than existing forecasts.
For the SKU which contributed to 47% of the total returns, an accuracy of 92% was achieved for May-June 2011. The monthly accuracy for
May2011 being 85% and June 2011 being 97%.

Validation
Past 2 years empty bottle returns data was
considered. The data was too volatile to fit
into the model and thus Centralized
Moving Averages was calculated to
smoothen the data and to get a better
model fit.
ARIMA model was built on Centralised
moving averages , Holt winters and Year on
Year growth rate models was built on
empty bottle returns. Bootstrapping
method was applied to choose best
forecast value.
May and June forecasts were compared
against actuals. Accuracy was calculated at
a daily-level for all SKUs
