Sedus Stoll AG is a full-service provider of office equipment and workplace concepts. For the analysis project of the SDSC BW, Sedus provided data from the production of office chairs, which are available in a large number of configuration variants. The data described monthly production volumes for specific article configurations for a period of 108 months between January 2008 and December 2016. The flexible and individual configurability of the office chairs features ordered by costumers made it particularly difficult to precisely predict the production process. The goal of the analysis was to find dependencies in the data that allows to forecast production volumes of specific configuration variants for the following month.
