This post is an introduction to SAS Visual Forecasting 8.2. We'll build a Visual Forecasting (VF) Pipeline, which is a process flow diagram whose nodes represent tasks in the VF Process. The objective is to show how to perform the full analytics life cycle with large volumes of data: from accessing data and assigning variable roles accurately, to building forecasting models, to select a champion model and overriding the system generated forecast.
Most people who work with optimization are familiar with Linear and Integer Programming, to their toolkit they could add Constraint Programming. Constraint Programming is a powerful technique that is used to solve powerful “real-world” problems in a variety of areas, such as, planning, scheduling, DNA Sequencing, computer graphics and natural
