海报摘要

Inventory planning is a critical function in FMCG companies, and forecasting plays a pivotal role in demand forecasting. The primary objective of this study was to compare the forecasting ability of statistical forecasting methods and machine learning models in demand forecasting in the FMCG sector. A case study approach was followed, using sales data from a specific category in a selected FMCG company for 2014-2019. Moving Average models, Seasonal Autoregressive Integrated Moving Average models and Artificial Neural Networks were used in this study. The results of this revealed that ANN model is more accurate in predicting demand in the FMCG sector. Forecasts from the ANN model showed an increasing trend in the sales of the supplements category. There is an increasing demand in baby products in the supplements category. For further research, we recommend using the Auto-Rforrressive Integrated Moving Average (ARIMAX) model for modeling demand when multivariate data is present.
