Hey freelancers so what I'm looking for is someone with good experience in forecasting. They need to be able to show me how to apply the formula and how the formula would work. Just to give you a little background we are in the automotive industry. We have a lot of data in regards to sales history but there are some new products that need to be calculated based on trend. Just to let everyone know we also have a lot of multi SKU products. For example if we have sku A, B, and C they can be sold separately. However they are also sold as a group so sku D would be the combination of sku A,B, and C. A lot of times customers also may want to order a set of headlights or something of that nature. In that case we also sell that if sku A is the right hand side and sku B is the left hand side we might sell sku A and B together as sku Z. This can go as high as 10 parts together sold as a package. Once again I'm looking for someone with experience regarding this and a way to show me the algorithm. Please also provide me with previous jobs you've done pretaining to this job. the algorithm also needs to be able to factor in for lead time. Our product comes from a freight liner normally 6 weeks later sometimes sooner though and we also have other suppliers where product could come in 3 days time or less or more if necessary. any questions? Let me know. I'm trying to get this squared away asap so please quote with your proposal and let me know how you plan on doing the job. If there are other suggestions you'd like to make in regards to the job being done more accurately please let me know. Thanks. The price for the job is put at a default $100 but would be willing to pay more for better job.
