Forecasting can help companies to determine the market strategy. It also helps in production planning and resources allocation. A good forecast can help the management team to make the best decision. Nowadays, it is important to develop a collaborative partnership within the supply chain. Coca Cola Enterprise (CCE) is working with its customers to develop the collaborative partnership. The relationship enhances the companies within the supply chain to obtain the great benefit. This project aims at helping to improve its current forecast process. This project aims at reducing the time consumption on the forecast process and increasing the accuracy of the forecasts. 72 forecasts models have been created by using Excel Data Analysis.
