Fastenal Commodity Intelligence Analytics

Eddie Schmit 

In my internship at Fastenal, I worked on a country cost projection program for our supply chain. I took current country prices on certain parts and used their projections to try to predict cost from other countries of origin. In other projects, I used R and data manipulation to compare parts on different attributes. I also created programs using Excel VBA to optimize work flows.

    Analyzing an Overwatch Player’s Skillset  

David Stampley Jr. 


By scraping data from Overbuff and MasterOverwatch websites, we identified which hero from each of the four classes was the strongest. Building a logistic regression model, we were able to examine which statistics were most important to satisfy the condition of winning for the population of players in a given skill tier in comparison to the player codenamed Stampede20.
