Trucking through the Data
|This past summer I
had an internship at Dart Transit Company, a national trucking business here in
Minnesota. At Dart I participated in the
BI and Data analytics team where we were given various projects of analyzation
to help better the company as a whole. I
will be talking about one of these projects, which mainly focused on the
prediction of profitability of a given hour in a driver’s day. |
Valuing Forecast Accuracy
This summer I was an Analytics Intern at John Deere. My main project focused on the importance of forecast accuracy, more specifically what is impacted when a forecast is x% more or less accurate. Application of my project was creating an RShiny app to quantify a dollar cost by how accurately we forecasted.
