Forecasting: preparing for the future
Forecasting means looking into the future. Whether that’s how many travelers will use your trains next year, what the demand will be for your products in the next quarter or how much mail you’ll have to process next week. Quantifying the future helps you make the right decisions about purchasing materials or products, reserving sufficient capacity or ensuring the availability of personnel. A good forecast gives your company the insights it needs to respond adequately and in time to changes. So that your business processes remain effective and efficient, and your customers satisfied.
Forecasting: good forecasting through analysis and interpretation
CQM uses historical data and quantitative models to get insights into the patterns that connect the past with the future. But in practice, that alone is not enough to get really high-quality predictions. You also need the knowledge of experts to be able to interpret the results of the analyzes properly and, if necessary, adjust them. Which is why with these sorts of projects, CQM always works closely with your business experts.
