Challenges and Opportunities on AI based forecasting in CPM Solutions using Neural Networks

13:00 - 14:00 Monday 21 September


During the last years, there was a hype about the opportunities of using Neural Networks in different areas and this is still going on. Where the main successes were in image recognition achieved, there were less discussions about the usage of timeseries.

For the past two years, I have been concerned with these opportunities in our Unit4 Prevero CPM solution, to support the planning and forecasting processes. In this workshop, I would like to use concrete examples to demonstrate the usage of Neural Networks in the CPM environment and also the importance of a good data quality. The examples are based on Python and Google TensorFlow and can be reproduced on own PCs during the workshop. Based on my experiences, I will also show what to look for in order to achieve good results and what pitfalls to avoid.
