This is what other experts say

“Demand forecasting at Competec AG imposed a big challenge to our team, due to the large catalog size (~250K products), the diversity of products’ categories as well as erratic historical demand. Thanks to Nicolas Vandeput, we could not only build forecasting models for our products, but also could improve our inventory optimization policy by involving more important factors to our solution.”

“Nicolas Vandeput hacks his way through the maze of quantitative supply chain optimizations. He is at the forefront of a new and better way of doing supply chains, and thanks to a richly illustrated book, where every single situation gets its own illustrating code snippet, so could you.”

“In an age where analytics and machine learning are taking on larger roles in business forecasting, Nicolas’ book is perfect for professionals who want to understand how they can use technology to predict the future more reliably.”

“The objective of Data Science for Supply Chain Forecasting is to show practitioners how to apply the statistical and ML models described in the book in simple and actionable “do-it-yourself” ways by showing, first, how powerful the ML methods are, and second, how to implement them with minimal outside help, beyond the “do-it-yourself” descriptions provided in the book.”

It was awesome working with Nicolas. He is the best way to quickly and efficiently ramp up a solid data science team with the right framework to move quickly on supply chain, forecasting, and inventory challenges. He was responsive to all our questions, even session to session. Even when the concepts weren’t new, it was still useful to see all the terms in one place and dive deep into them practically for our use cases. Nicolas’s expertise was incredibly valuable. We definitely look forward to working with him again!
